Capture the Colour… has posted a Photo Challenge, with a deadline of August 29th. The challenge is called Capture the Colour. Entrants are to post travel photos showing Blue, Green, Yellow, White and Red, following the rules at:

Entrants are also asked to invite five other bloggers. Since I’m joining this so late, I’ve picked five who I hope will be able to meet the challenge in time – and they are listed at the bottom of this post.

Here are my color entries:

Blue – Tower Bridge and Blue Skies over London – Taken May, 2010. We’d had many grey skies, but as we crossed another bridge in the top of a bus, this lovely sight greeted us!

Green: Foliage at a lookout point on the Pali Highway, Oahu, Hawaii taken November, 2011 – We’d been talking about this trip for 35 years, and my husband always wanted to drive the Pali Highway. The views didn’t disappoint!

Yellow: Black-eyed Susans in a Connecticut garden.  Taken June, 2012 in our front yard. These happy faces greet us every day in the Summer.

White: Queen Victoria Statue in front of St. Paul’s Cathedral, London. Taken May, 2010.  St. Paul’s has an austere elegance, not only inside the sanctuary, but also outside.  This statue echoes the pristine white image of the Cathedral. I just love all of it, including the lovely gold elements that offset the white.

Red: Changing Guard at Buckingham Palace. Taken May, 2010. I’ve wanted to see this since as a child I first heard A. A. Milne’s poem “Buckingham Palace.”  I’ve been to London several times before, but this trip marked my first time seeing the Changing of the Guard – I was just thrilled!

My nominees to also take up this challenge follow. I do hope they will have time to do this, as they all have stunning photos to share!
