Colour says it all

Lens-Artists Challenge #195: Colourful Expressions

Is the colour you like bold or subdued. Should a photo stand out on it’s own or blend the colours? Does it sit at the front or stay in the back for someone to discover? I think I like colour. My house is colourful and my garden is colourful.

I don’t know where to start or what I am doing but lets see where this post takes you and me.

Let’s kick off with selective colour, one of my favourite effects

A fluffy Eastern Yellow Robins yellow just stands out more

Just the red on a Black Jezebel butterfly stands out

A leaf stuck on a window after a storm looked interesting but more so with selective colour I feel

Red always stands out

But can also be subtle

But is never missed

Green can be quite fluorescent

or just be a hint of colour

Some blues are hello

but also quiet

It’s a hello yellow

or try to find me in the grass

or among the trees

A pink to catch the eye

or to gently cascade

and be small and dainty

or pop out among the others

As Anne said the colours in rust are a favourite

Small and white a discovery

or be a showy presence in the garden

and have a subtle blend

with pastels and strong green to stand out

and a mix of colours that attract the eye

or add colour to a dull day

But a riot of colours that make you look more than once is always a favourite

Well that was a bit of a long post but I hope you enjoyed a bit of the colours in my life or actually in bushboys world

I have no idea what this machine was for or why it was near the beach

The old truck that has been in my street since I first moved here. Has since been moved to another property unfortunately. I liked it where it was.

Lost in Translation – Thursdays Special – Pick a Word September 2021

Paulas words made me think for a while. This morning the Female Satin Bowerbirds came into the garden looking for a bit of nectar from the Yamba Sunshine Grevillea which was fortuitous for reachable.

I have a few photos of boats but this sailing boat in Genoa was the best for docked

Linkage had to be a chain and a rusty one is even better

LINKAGE

I couldn’t find anything straight away and then I remembered the horses who had a short disagreement. I don’t know what infuriated one of them

INFURIATED

Last week on a walk in the park prior to another lockdown at my besties area, I found a hat on a post and thought “that may come in handy” and here is a post behatted

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Thursday: Rusty Relic

A wonderful old car built in Australia. The second Holden model built in 1953, the FJ is an iconic car. Although the sedan was far more popular, 169,969 being sold, the Australian farmer bought far more utes which even today is the most practical vehicle. The ute was developed from the demands of farmers wives who wished to go to town in comfort and not have to share the inside of the car with pigs or chickens on market day.

I even found a bit of Aussie rock about the Holden FJ
