Y is for yellow. I love taking photos. Here are a few that focus on the color 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 slaves. 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.

what a great series! the swamp in autumn colors is beautiful. my family and friend also find it weird that i take photos of everything and everyone.:p i always tell them, "you will thank me later!". LOLReplyDelete
I love a boardwalk over wetland and that swamp looks magical. Love the macro. I used to collect fruit labels as a kid, that may be on the list of weird.ReplyDelete
It must have been a bright and yellow day.ReplyDelete
Love all your yellow shots!ReplyDelete
Richie, I love all of the yellows, such variety in color and subject matter. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Just flicking through your pictures, I wondered how they could call it Bluebonnet Swamp with all that yellow? I'm sure there is a good reason, but I'm not even sure what a Bluebonnet is. Love the color yellow -- the color of sunshine.ReplyDelete
Great Y post...I really like the egg yolk picture! I suppose those eggs will end up scrambled:)ReplyDelete
Wonderful colour and great choice for Y, Richies!ReplyDelete
