Stories and Photographs of my travels, Tales of friends, family, animals and my life
Just happens to be my favorite color these days!!! Fun!
When I first read the challenge from A Word in Your Ear I thought I would post under my other, living in Finland blog. After all orange and Helsinki is not exactly the first combination that springs to mind. I actually thought there is no possible way I can find orange. Then I was in the kitchen opening a packet of rice with my trusty kitchen scissors...
It took me quite a while to decide if I wanted to post a picture for this challenge at all. Orange is not my favourite colour and I just couldn't see any photos I'd taken that were relevant. Well, inspiration hit last night and I remembered Italy.
In Florence every building, every bridge, everything was just a shade of orange or brown.
This week the dictionary has fallen open at the word orange, at A Word In Your Ear
As I was going through some of our old photos, this one jumped out at me. We had reached Annapurna Base Camp, Elevation 8,091 m (26,545 ft). We were exhausted and happy to have a rustic room with a bed. That little orange tent must have housed an indomitable soul.
I tried to complete a photo a day challenge for every day in January but I'm nowhere near dedicated enough for that.
However I have a photo perfect for this week's Word a Week Challenge - Orange.http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/a-word-a-week-challenge-orange-2/
The writer chooses a word from the dictionary each weeks and challenges readers to upload a photo so here is mine.
Orange shops are a regular site in Korea.
