April 2013 #Yellow : #worldcolors



It’s time for #YELLOW!

[See previous posts Green, Red, White]

I have to admit that this #worldcolors thing is starting to take on a life of its own! I’m noticing that I see something red (a color we’ve already explored) and I shoot the thing/image/place with the intention to place it in a folder for next year’s #Red !! April has been a really, really busy month for us, so I’m not going to venture back into my archives of photos for this color choice.  Instead, I’ll just share the yellow that infused itself into my life and my daily activities the past two weeks.

(Make sure you look at Anne’s GORGEOUS #yellow from many places, but especially from Vietnam!) 


The Art of the Brick Exhibit at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore (more on the exhibit in a separate, dedicated post)

“Probably my best known piece.  Yellow always draws a lot of attention from adults as well as children. Why? I think we grown-ups appreciate how cathartic ‘opening oneself up to the world’ can be for our souls. And the kids? Probably because yellow guts spilling onto the floor looks cool. For me, this piece is about the metamorphosis I have been through on my journeys.”  [11,014 bricks]


My own selfie.



The beginnings of a homemade limoncello experiment [stay tuned!].


An amazing gallery in The Mission (San Francisco) called Creativity Explored.  I wish we’d had more time to go learn more about it.  The gallery offers artists with developmental disabilities the means to create, exhibit, and sell their art in the Creativity Explored studios and gallery, and around the world.


The amazing Clarion Alley between Mission and Valencia in San Francisco. Again, more later in a dedicated post.



Bikes were EVERYWHERE in San Fran!



AMAZING sunset in Langkawi, Malaysia.



Freshly squeezed juice for breakfast in Langkawi, along with the umbrellas the littlest little brought along for mood-setting.



Back to California, these signs were posted all over the Muir Woods when we went to see the Redwoods near Sausalito.

The oldest surviving structure in San Francisco, the Mission San Francisco de Asis was founded just a couple of weeks (well, and two hundred years) before my birth and was absolutely beautiful.

    Lovely pics Naomi!

    Here are mine for the month:


    April = yellow

    I am also trying to drum up interest on Google+ photography communities. It might be good to have a website to consolidate all the entries? And an email address so we could have a Twitter account and a Google+ account for example to consolidate and promote. For now we are mostly getting people we know / interact with involved. Something to think about :)

      All fab ideas! When Anne is done with her travels, we are going to sit down virtually and think through the best way to handle, move forward. On one hand it is great to keep it intimate so that we CAN all interact with each other, but on the flip side, it would be awesome to see it grow, right?

    Naomi! I LOVE this idea! Believe it or not, I was just thinking, what I could do as a standing guest post where I don’t have to reinvent my series each and every year, and I thought COLORS! I was thinking about asking different bloggers to take different colors and write about them starting in 2014! Maybe you will consider kicking things off, eh?

    And by the way? I love your yellow selfie. 😉
