Sue’s Word A Week Photograph Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2014/01/07/a-word-a-week-photograph-challenge-yellow/ is Yellow.
Having just written a piece, for one of my other blogs, entitled A Touch of Yellow, I found myself having to once again go through the photo files in order to find some suitable pictures to match the challenge. Although I am by no means a fan of ‘modern art’ I thought this yellow sculpture entitled Love/Embrace, by Leslie Bruning, part of the ‘Sculptures on the Boulevard’ project in Chicago, a bright addition to the park.
Sometimes the chosen color can be only a small part of the overall picture and yet the eye is drawn to it right away, such as the tub of yellow chrysanthemums, in the shot above, captured at the Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford. Or a yellow raft floating by the dock at a lake in Wisconsin.
At other times the color is the majority of the picture such these yellow flowers in a field at Vogelei Park in Hoffman Estates.
Or this stained-glass window; part of a display at Navy Pier in Chicago.
Sometimes the color is part of a recognizable symbol such as this yellow water taxi, a familiar sight during the summer months on the river in downtown Chicago.
