The Color Orange!

This week’s photo challenge at The Daily Post is the color orange. As I started searching through my photos I suddenly started questioning my judgement of color. I shot this field of wildflowers last Spring. Once I start looking at the photo….my brain starts questioning my eyes….orange or red? Red or orange?

Pumpkins on the other hand are a given….definitely orange. Well, unless they are gourds….then they might be green or tan or…..well, not orange.

Halloween (an orange season) is my friend Sonya’s favorite season. She has enough Halloween shirts that she can wear a different shirt everyday of October. In this photo Sonya was doing one of the only things she enjoys more than Halloween…..singing. Her stage was inside the Vortex at the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth. When you talk (or sing) inside the Vortex, everything echoes……needless to say she had a blast!

And finally….an orange butterfly…and yes, I’m sure he’s orange!

      I hope you will meet her this summer Sue….she will be traveling to Canada with us. She is a party that sings at the top of her lungs (sometimes amazingly….sometimes not so much!!) 🙂

    Great choices! I love the flowers (whatever color they are), butterflies always, and your friend obviously enjoying herself.

    Beautiful photos of orange, Tree. Your friend Sonya sounds like a very fun person to be around. I would love to sing with her inside the Vortex there and we’ll make lovely music 🙂

        I certainly won’t mind singing with Sonya. But I don’t think I’ll dance with her as I can’t dance. So Sonya will dance and I will clap along!

    As Pattisj said – everyone needs a Sonya in their life 🙂

    I learned some time ago that I apparently don’t see colours quite the same way as others, so I would never question your version of orange 😉 They all look good to me!
