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!|
