Orange: Weekly Photo Challenge

This week’s challenge is bound to bring out the orange flowers, in profusion.  Here are three different shades of orange, all taken in the Royal Botanical Gardens, Sydney.

For something different though:

IMG_1218This orange automobile, crafted in wood with rubber tyres and brass fittings, was bought in the nineties as a Christmas present for my father-in-law, who was joining us in Germany for Christmas.  Taped to the underside were a variety of German chocolates.  For a while, anyway.

IMG_0278This ‘beautiful’ architectural specimen can be found in the centre of Lyon, France, as you cruise past on the Saone.  It’s right next to a lime green specimen of similar construction – not sure which is the more outrageous.

And of course, the collection wouldn’t be complete without an orange sunset from the water, taken on the Canal Rhone a Sete.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    Fantastic sunset! I’m not a big fan of orange, but seeing some of these photos I may start leaning toward orange.

  10. These are all beautiful, Tish. I like the car best of all. It looks like it was well-crafted and the chcolates that were underneath sound like a nice surprise. : )


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
