Weekly Photo Challenge: Color


(Not so long ago I set a personal goal of using this space to explore, expand, share and play with my photography. Now that I am back on the blogging bandwagon, I have decided to up the ante with two photo-themed posts a week:Β the Weekly Travel Theme from Where’s My Backpack? and, now, the Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post).Β 

This week’s challenge from The Daily Post is “Color”. It is great timing for this theme, as spring is blooming all around. Rather than follow the most straightforward path out and post flower images, I decided dig through my photo archives a bit. During my last year in Paris, I got it in my head that I wanted to photograph Vespa scooters in all of their color variations as I wandered around the city as part of a personal photography project. I had an image in my head of them framed together and decorating the wall of an office someday, bringing a whimsical splash of color to an otherwise serious space. This seems like a great moment to share my collection so far. I am satisfied with the variety of shapes, sizes and hues, but definitely feel the missing green Vespa. Does anyone have a photo they would like to share to round out the rainbow?

    • Thanks! I’m enjoying branching out so much, but I need a bit of a routine to stick with it – we’ll see how it goes. I fully expect you to be on the lookout for the green machine when you are overseas!
