Time to break away from the usual posts for a bit of competition fun…
As I submit five of my favourite colour themed photos for Travel Supermarket’s “Capture the Colour 2013” photo contest!
A massive thanks goes out to Hari at alternative.reality for the shout out to get involved with this. And with some great prizes on offer, including an iPad, a FujiFilm camera and £3,000 in spending money it’s always worth a punt.
There’s five simple themes involved – Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and White, so here’s my entries. There’s a couple you may have seen before, but there’s also some new ones too…
This summer has been the best one we’ve had in England for seven years! Not that it’s had a lot of competition in that time mind… But still, it’s been nice to actually see some sunny days in my home land, and the flowers have been out in bloom big time as this close-up shows.
The gorgeous old streets of Nice’s Vielle Ville (old town) are decorated with buildings soaked in warm colours, and this shot sprung straight to my mind when it came to the yellow category.
These neon green bikes immediately caught my attention in Amsterdam, and I figured they would make a striking selective colour shot. Keeping the green as the only colour turned out to be a successful experiment.
White was the trickiest subject to find a suitable image for, but I eventually remembered this close up shot of some striking Japanese lanterns decorated with beautiful kanji calligraphy near Senso-ji temple in Asakusa, Tokyo.
The stunning City of Arts & Sciences in Valencia completely “blue” me away the first time I visited, as I was lucky enough to stop by on an amazing spring day that lit up both the sky and surroundings.
So here’s hoping you’ve enjoyed my photos, now it’s time to (hopefully) pass the torch on to some other travel sharp-shooters:
Good luck all!
