Capture the Colors

Suzy @ Someday, Somewhere has included me in a fun Bloggy Meme that fits in perfectly with our Traveling Tuesday... and a little Blue Monday
This challenge is to find photos from my travels that represent the colors White, Red, Yellow, Blue, and Green.

I spent a quiet Sunday looking through years and years of travel photos, and came up with the one's that bring back the best memories for me.
That is the nice thing about taking snap-shots when you travel . . . to others, they are nice pictures.
To me ~ each is a memory of an event.

White ~ My 'White' photo was taken just recently at the beach. I do think we have the most beautiful white sandy beaches on the Alabama Gulf Coast. The white waves crashing and the early morning sunrise. This beach has been in my blood since I was a little girl ~ this is a memory I treasure.
Red ~ This 'Red' photo is from years ago, on one of my many trips to London.
The classic red phone booths always bring a smile to my face. Who can help but get that 'been to London' photo?
Yellow ~ You don't know yellow, until you have cracked open an egg from the area of Bologna. This is what makes their pasta that rich yellow color.
You see a photo of yellow eggs in flour... I am reminded of a great weekend with friends. Cooking, Eating and Laughter.
Blue ~ My choice for 'Blue' was harder, because I am always on the lookout for Blue Monday . This is a shot of the replica of The David in Florence. With this photo, the music of Italy comes to my mind. A cafe in the square surrounded by the chatter, sights and smells of Italy.
Bellisimo~
Green ~ I have to include a shot from one of the many markets I have spent time in. I love nothing better than to wander in a fresh market . . . whether it is in Alabama, or in Europe. Small farmers and business people, with produce they can be proud of.
Those are my colors~
The challenge is to :
- present 5 photographs from my travels showing the colours blue, green, yellow, red, and white
- nominate 5 bloggers to participate in the challenge
- complete the challenge and indicate you've entered by:
- linking to your blog post on your Facebook wall mentioning Capture the Colour and
tagging the TravelSupermarket.com Facebook page or...
- linking to your post via Twitter including @travelsupermkt and #capturethecolour in
The best Capture the Colour entries will be shared throughout the competition by expert judges and the TravelSupermarket social accounts.
Each judge will select their own colour category winners and will then combine to select the overall winner of the travel prize. For further information see Terms & Conditions here
Now to tag other bloggers ~ I hesitate to do this, because not everyone has the time to do this kind of thing.
If you don't want to . . . fine by me!
These are the friends I would love to see play ~
PalmaBella will have plenty of photos of Italy,
Jerry always has a camera handy when he is traveling, 
Val is planning a trip,
Jan  just got home from one,
Holledayz is always on holiday.
Happy Traveling y'all~

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
