Travel

Capture the Colour

Not only was I excited to participate in the challenge, but I was extremely flattered and moved by what Amy said about me. Amy describes the contest best The aim of the contest is to collect submissions from people showcasing their travel photographs that capture the colours in five given categories: red, bluegreenyellowwhiteThen you spread the word by nominating five bloggers who you think should also take part.

To be honest, I am not a very good photographer and I don’t even own a real camera. I keep trying to save up to invest in a camera, but life keeps getting in the way. Like Amy, I’ll strive over the next year to a) get a camera and b) improve my skills and enter again in 2014.

    I love your pictures! I think green best reflects its color, but my actual favorite is red.

    • Thank you! I loved that market- I could have spent hours there. I think the chocolates and nuts section was my personal favourite. But all the fresh fruit and veg was just stunning! x
