Y Is For Yellow



It's time again for ABC Wednesday. If you aren't participating in ABC Wednesday, you are missing out on a lot of fun. This week the letter is Y. My post for today is a little lame, but It is what I came up with. Y is for yellow.

Warm Spiral
This photo was taken in a plantation home. This stairway was small and cramped compared to the grand stairway in the main part of the home. This stairway at the back of the house was for the servants. I was captivated by the warm yellow glow and the shapes.

Yolk
My family thinks that I take a lot of weird pictures. When I have my camera out, everything is fair game. As my wife was frying an egg, I just had to take a picture. Yeah, it is probably weird.



Chiquita
And you thought the last picture was weird!



Bluebonnet Swamp
This picture was taken at the Bluebonnet Swamp in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It is a beautiful bit of swamp in the city limits that has been turned into a park with a visitors center and boardwalk so you can walk through the swamp. It is beautiful year round, but especially in the fall.

Belize Juice Box
In Belize, the inexpensive drinks are packaged in a plastic pouch. The yellow of the drink really draws you into this photo of a beautiful young school girl at the New Horizon SDA School in San Pedro, Belize

Rod Run 35
I photographed this beautiful old Ford street rod at the Wilhelmina Rod Run in Mena, Arkansas.

I hope the "yellow" has warmed you a bit on this cold winter day.

  1. Your photos aren't weird at all. They're wonderful. And bright. And just what we need on a dull winter's day.

  2. Who knew there could be so many shades of yellow?

    I can see Daffy Duck in that fried egg picture, unless it's the profile of W. C. Fields.

  4. What a great collection for the Y Day, Richard! Lots of beautiful Yellows! My family think I'm a bit weird as I run around taking pictures of everything these days, so I can definitely relate! Hope your new year is off to a great start! Enjoy!

  6. Absolutely perfect pictures for the letter Y. Not weird at all. I'm forever taking what others think are strange pictures. It seems ABC Wednesday is always on my mind.

  25. You did get in a lot of Yellow's!! I liked the Yellow swamp place besides the old Ford and the Studebaker.

  26. Wonderful "Y" photos, Richard. That '25 Studebaker is gorgeous! Your other "Y" choices are great. You should wander around with a camera more often!

  28. Good heavens! Nothing lame at all in this post of yours! Yellow is a fine Y word, and if you are weird, I am certifiable! That's a sweet soft macro of a hibiscus, here known as gumamela, a flower I've just recently fallen in love with although I've seen it here in Asia for a quarter of a century!

  29. Who can resist yellow:-), a great variety of photos. I can never resist a board-walk and having probably seen more than a few films set in southern swamps, that would be a perfect day out; after breakfasting on that tempting fried egg and possibly with a chiquita banana for a mid day snack.

  33. I love the yellow spiral staircase - and the Studebaker, too! I certainly do feel warmer, especially as skies here are blue right now!
