The Gallery: Yellow
I had to flick through my photos to find something yellow for this week’s theme, and couldn’t help thinking that it’s a pity that I’ve already posted so many photos of DS starting school, as his polo shirt is an extremely fetching shade of yellow.
But then I thought I might not have bored everyone to death yet, so I’ll post another one!
In this photo, DS is still trying to do up his top button but is using the ‘gazing into the distance’ method, rather than the more popular ‘crick your neck to try to see what you are doing’ one!
I also found a couple more ‘yellow’ photos that I’d like to share with you.
This one is of a pelican that landed on our boat in Swakopmund, Namibia. I know it’s not all yellow but the flexible bottom half of its beak is. I love the way all the different shapes and colours fit together to make these peculiar-looking birds; it’s like a jigsaw puzzle! This is a much more natural, peaceful yellow than my son’s bright shirt.
And finally, I had to show you this.
This is a close up of the Olympic Cauldron on the night Usain Bolt won the 100m final. I know there is some orange in there, but if you look near the centre, it’s yellow too. We sat high above the flames and I could look down into them, which was fascinating. You can see the heat rising off it and distorting the shapes of the stadium and spectators in the upper bit of the photo. This is a fierce yellow and makes me think of the sun.
