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.
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.

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.
And you thought the last picture was weird!
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.

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

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.

Your photos aren't weird at all. They're wonderful. And bright. And just what we need on a dull winter's day.ReplyDelete
Who knew there could be so many shades of yellow?ReplyDelete
I can see Daffy Duck in that fried egg picture, unless it's the profile of W. C. Fields.
Absolutely gorgeous photos of yellow! And how did you manage to make that egg yoke look so perfect??? :DReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
love the yellow shots..ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
especially love the old cars. no, I don't think it is weird.ReplyDelete

Let's hear it for weird! Love the car too. And I just said I didn't like yellow on my blog. You have changed my mind. Thanks.ReplyDelete
You have done yellow proud here, but that staircase wins with me!ReplyDelete
Wow Richie! You did an absolutely incredible job rounding up yellow pictures for the letter y. You shone : ) Wishing you all the very best in 2011. Love, BeckyReplyDelete
Hey, beautiful shots! The egg is certainly my favorite with the brilliant blue in the background. (Say that three times fast!)ReplyDelete
OOOH! I really like that YELLOW Studebaker! :)ReplyDelete
all pretty but I love the swampReplyDelete
You have a great collection of Yellow photos but that walk in the swamp is awesome.ReplyDelete
Excellent work...you just gave me an idea for my blog....! Excellent photography...that egg frying looks so delicious...Was this really your Dad's car?ReplyDelete
You do have a number of items for yellow today!ReplyDelete
Terrific captures... brightens up my day.ReplyDelete
I think the egg photo is my favority, Richard. Go figure... :)ReplyDelete
Happy to see you back on your blog. Happy New Year, my old friend!
Sa-weet! Love all the yellows. That tulip is sublime.ReplyDelete
And yes, you are a weirdo. We run in packs.
How beautiful, I loved your choices for this set of yellow moments there!ReplyDelete

Thanks for commenting on my entry. Haha, you, too, chose "yellow". Yes, your yellow warmed me up!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day.

You did get in a lot of Yellow's!! I liked the Yellow swamp place besides the old Ford and the Studebaker.ReplyDelete
Wonderful "Y" photos, Richard. That '25 Studebaker is gorgeous! Your other "Y" choices are great. You should wander around with a camera more often!ReplyDelete
I never liked yellow much until I looked at your post. Very cool.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
1925 Studebaker - impressive car. i like the last pic most thoughReplyDelete
These photos were beautiful. Thanks for sharing them.ReplyDelete
Talk about a great collection of yellow. You've got it. The swamp photo in particular is very striking.ReplyDelete
I love the yellow spiral staircase - and the Studebaker, too! I certainly do feel warmer, especially as skies here are blue right now!ReplyDelete
