FOL:14 - Week 40 - Color

Wow, week 40. October. Time flies, doesn't it?! 

This month our topic for the Focus on Life 2014 Weekly Photography Challenge from Sally was "COLOR" and for this first week in October our prompt is:  

Color Photography.  

Sally said, "Capture your most colorful moments to date!  This week its all about color photography!


This wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. Looking around, all the colors seemed the same,...even the pearls I was able to work with for a few minutes were all white. 
Not very colorful. 

Then, as we sat down to eat one night, my hubby and son's favorite show came on.  Yes, we're awful, we usually eat in front of the idiot-box. But we laugh, talk and have fun while doing it, so it makes for some great family time!  

Anyway, when this came up on the screen, I shouted out, "Pause it!" 



They looked at me like I was crazy. I explained to the son and hubs what our photo assignment was this week and how, even on my daily walks, I either saw nothing very colorful or I'd forgotten to take my phone when I did see something, so this was my only chance!

So, here's the color that was in my week. We laugh all the time at each other as we each try to be the first to complete the puzzle. It makes for some very colorful dinner conversations, let me tell you!

Let's see what other colorful moments everyone else captured this week!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Color in Everything!
Cheers,
~Shel~

I'll leave you with these colorful signs,....

  1. Great photos, and we're the same especially at the weekend - eating in front of the box - great family time (until there's a fight over the remote...) x

  2. Great colorful photos! I love that you chose the Wheel of Fortune. Like you, our family eats on the couch to watch this show. But it wasn't always that way. When the kids got into sports and summer jobs we moved away from the table and on to the couch.
    The second photo is also perfect for this challenge.

    1. I just love those signs, too. They're in a shop on the side of the road (west side) as you are going up the road right before you come into Oak Creek Canyon / Sedona - it's one of my fav places to stop and look around.
