Thematic Photographic: Yellow

It's a colour that I love, so I was pleased when I saw that Carmi's theme for Thematic Photographic this week was yellow. I did wonder though, how many yellow photos I'd find in my files. I knew there'd be sunflowers, daffodils, kowhai (a New Zealand tree that flowers in springtime) and various other yellow flowers, but I wanted something a bit different. That was quite hard to find - I seem to have plenty of photos that feature blue and green, but not so many yellow (apart from the aforementioned flowers)

Eventually I came up with these:

The Antigua Boatsheds, a well-known Christchurch tourist spot.



An intriguing piece of art at sculptor Josie Martin's Akaroa garden



More subtle - lichen on rocks and old wood:



And, since it's autumn here, and since I love this photo even though it's almost as cliched as daffodils, autumn leaves in Hagley Park:

I love the photos. I too am a fan of the colour yellow. Apparantly a lot of men aren't fond of it as a colour, I don't know where I heard that snippet of info. I wonder if it's true? Australian men seem to like it! So maybe it's a myth.

very creative yellows. And never say autumn leaves are cliched. The beauty of the fall is always a spectacle of nature to behold and appreciate!
