The Thirdeyeworld is a great blog. And the lady that runs it is Nicole…one of the most interesting people I have met on here. Now Nicole has taken part in the Capture the Colour Competition over at TravelSupermarket.com.
Nicole’s entry is The World in Technicolour. Go on…check it out. You will be happy you did.
And she got to nominate 5 bloggers to enter. Bless her because she included me in that list. So here are my five pictures to capture the colours red, white, yellow, blue and green.
This is taken in Tauranga in a tiny shopping mall that also houses our Rialto Cinema where I went yesterday afternoon to see a terrific movie…One Man Two Guvnors with a friend as an early birthday treat. These paper lanterns hang above the food court below and immediately caught my attention.
I think this one speaks for itself. Leaving the cinema I couldn’t resist taking a shot of this sign.
It may be winter here in New Zealand but there are still flowers to be found. I found this one on Saturday while walking the main street of Katikati. We Kiwis like a bit of colour. It was sitting in a vase, on a pedestal, outside the door of one of the town’s four hairdressors. We may be a small rural community but we like to be well groomed.
Katikati’s main street offers up more than a place to shop. Walking from one end to the other should be done slowly so that you miss neither conversation nor interesting sights along the way. This blue monster took up a fair bit of room…but who am I too argue when it still looks this good.
A friend’s garden is possibly one of the most peaceful places I know of here in town. I spent the morning a few days ago snapping all the hidden (and not so hidden) treasures that can be found as you wander around it. This seat is one of my favourite pieces and I love the way it changes with the seasons. After a wet few days in winter it often looks like this.
So there they are !!! The colours that reflect the place I live in, in a truly Kiwi way.
I don’t normally pass on things like this…but this time…well I am curious to see if these guys will at least try to answer the challenge, and as they are all very unusual individuals – what they would come up with.
So here are my five bloggers. Not all are photobloggers but I know they have it in them to produce something worth viewing.
