Okay, okay, so that was pretty cheesy. But this is my first week to join in on the Brenda Photo Challenge (hosted this week by Joni) and, wouldn't you know it, this week's theme is the color ORANGE! When I first heard the theme, I groaned out loud. Orange? What can I take a picture of that's orange?? (I sometimes have issues with thinking outside the box. Obviously.) Then I saw what Jeanne posted and Joan gave me a little guidance by telling me the things she was going to photograph and I suddenly remembered; the world's a colorful place! I can find 3 orange things, no sweat! And I did. First, here's my orange Lantana that I planted in our backyard a few seasons ago. (Nothing like a hardy perennial, eh!)
I found this next image on my computer. This is a compilation of 2 pictures that I took while at the Mall of America last week. The compilation consists of the orange neon of the "Minnesot-ah!" sign (which in itself just cracks me up) and the bright orange of the Nickelodeon sign from the amusement park located in the center of the mall.
And last, but certainly not least, Tropical Twist Trident gum comes in a pretty, yummy looking orange package. I usually keep at least 2 packs of this stuff in my purse at all times.
So there. I've done it. I've participated in my very first Brenda Photo Challenge. And had a blast doing it. Can't wait to travel Blogland and see the pictures everyone else came up with. For any other Brenda Photo Challenge virgins out there, what are you waiting for? Grab that camera and join in! Thank you Joan and Jeanne for leading me into this with and by your examples. Now stop laughing about my gum fetish. Please.
