The lovely Alex at Ifs Ands & Butts tagged me in the super-popular Capture the Color Competition!
The short version is bloggers post a photo in each of the five categories (Blue, Green, White, Yellow, Red), tag 5 more bloggers, and tweet Capture the Color to let them know you’ve entered.
I am by no means a pro photographer like some bloggers I know – most of these were taken years ago with my old Canon point and shoot. All photos are completely 100% unretouched because I’m ghetto and I don’t know how to do it. But it’s a fun idea for a contest and I basically do everything I get tagged in (Liebster, anyone?)
So here are my entries for the 2013 Capture the Color Competition:
|This pagoda is in the Japanese Gardens in San Francisco. I love all things Japanese, and actually squealed in excitement when I rounded a corner and came upon this.|
|This is a glacial lake in Peru called Laguna 69. It took a 6 hour, head splitting hike up to nearly 14,000ft to get there, but the view was worth it. I love that the sky and the lake are the same color.|
|This is the only photo with my new fancy camera. I found this tree on a hike in Lynn Canyon in North Vancouver. The forest was so, so green after I spent a year straight on the beach. It smelled so fresh!|
|I wish the quality of this photo was better, but I love how the church is lit up. This was in the Plaza de Armas in Chiclayo, Peru.|
|This eccentric house-turned-shop is a perfect example of the crazy vibe in Toronto’s Kensington neighborhood – I love it!|
I’m tagging the following five bloggers: Adrienne Ford, Ashley Abroad, Colleen Brynn Travels, Getting Stamped and Audrey Bergner!

Beautiful selection of photos Rika, I really like them. My favourite one is definitely the red one. I am also in love with everything Japanese, especially pagodas. Great snapshot!
Thanks Agness! I secretly like the red one the best too.

The red and blue are SO awesome! I'm so glad you participated and I'm REAL impressed that they are not retouched and without a fancy cam 🙂
Thanks Alex! Yeah, they may not be the best ones out there but they're certainly authentic 🙂

Wow that lake in Peru is stunning!! I have major South America wanderlust right now.
It was worth the hike, but at the time I thought I was going to die haha!
