The color of summer – photo challenge


Karma has issued her August photo challenge.  This time it is all about color.  In fact our assignment was to find all the colors of the rainbow represented in summer fun.

We have lots of summer color around here, so I’m taking you on three different photo tours. It’s difficult to choose just one photo for each color, so I’m splurging on three categories!

First is the county fair.  I went to the fair specifically to find the colors of the rainbow.  Some of you have seen many of my fair photos; I posted them shortly after I was there.  But I saved the photos here just for this challenge.

Second is our own garden.  After I read the challenge I realized that all the colors of the rainbow were right here at home.

Third is an annual event that occurs here every August called the Woodward Dream Cruise.  People from all over the country converge on our county and drive their antique and muscle cars up and down miles and miles of Woodward Ave, just like teenagers used to cruise Woodward in the 50’s.  It’s a huge event and there are beautiful cars on display for miles.  I’ll show you just a few.  I found that I was more interested in the art of pieces of vehicles than the whole car or truck.  So mostly you’ll see pieces of them here.










And as a special bonus, a picture of ME doing something summery.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  2. ooohhh…good idea!!!


  3. Very cool idea & nice photos!


  4. Love it!

    Summer is a time of color. You’ll have to repost this in February, when everyone is so tired of the white and grey!


  5. The colors are so vivid! And I love the composition in the photos – you have such a good eye!


  6. This is GREAT, Dawn! I love how you combined the three categories within colors. And the shots are terrific. Color AND VARIETY!


  7. I’m just getting ready to do mine (finally!) and now I know it’s going to be terribly boring compared to yours! Great job!


  8. I love the way you captured the rainbow colors of summer. Such a wonderful variety! 🙂


  9. Your colors are gorgeous Dawn! Three pictures for each color are wonderful. Everyone seems to be outdoing themselves for the hunt this time around – I’m a bit afraid my own will pale in comparison. ( did you and Scott go to the same car show?)


  10. I think Scott and I were at different car events..I’ll go look at his! This one was fun because color is so fun to look for. I think probably everyone enjoyed looking for summer color!


  11. Good job, Dawn! Look at your colors! It makes my heart feel brighter just to gaze… Hope all is going well with you.


  12. Love the colors and the self portrait is very neat. 🙂


  13. I have to confess to being attracted to the car shots, but I guess that’s allowed… lol… You’ve sure put together a great selection here from the three different locations… Very cleverly done..

  15. What a wonderful entry! I really enjoyed this and seeing ‘summer color’ through your eyes. Now, I’m partial to flowers so if I had to choose, the purple asters are my favorite!
