In which I enter the Capture the Colour Contest 2013
The Capture the Colour Contest is run by the TravelSupermarket and it’s a chance for people to enter photographs in the categories red, blue, green, yellow and white.
Karisa from Karisabroad was very kind and nominated me to take part, so below I offer my five entries into Capture the Contest 2013.
Red is… Ribbons on top of Mount Huashan near Xi’an in China. I remember getting to the top of Huashan (via cable car as the paths were closed in the winter) to come across these stunning Taoist ribbons fluttering in the breeze. They were everywhere and people were adding to them all the time with their prayers.
Blue is… The school uniforms of two teenage lovers kissing in Bihu Ecological Park, Zhangzhou, China. These sculptures caused a stir in China’s news so what a surprise to find that they were in my home city! Finding them meant climbing over the barriers as the park wasn’t opened at the time and I didn’t want them to be graffitied or damaged by unruly and unsupportive people.
Green is… Sunshine coming through a fern tree in the height of summer in Pukekura Park, New Plymouth, New Zealand.
Yellow is… A Mongolian hotpot steaming away in Beijing, China. It was a delicious lunch as well!
White is… A black swan swimming on a lake in Chengdu Giant Panda reserve, China. I love the fact that this is a contrast to a normal swan being white.
Now, I get to nominate some other bloggers to have a chance to enter, so:
Sarah of The Travel Spotlight
Agness of etramping
The Guy of flightsandfrustration
Timothy of The Humidity
Kate of CanucKiwiKate
