Oddly enough this week’s photo challenge is ‘orange.’ It’s ironic, because I used orange as a unifying color in a photo challenge a couple of weeks ago. So of course I can’t use my photo of oranges from that post. And that would be too obvious anyway. So I spent Saturday and a bit of Sunday scouting out orange things that represent life here in Michigan in March. When there aren’t any orange things blooming.
Once I started looking for orange I found it everywhere. From my toast in the morning, to the bittersweet vine on a bush down the street, to the orange snow fencing everywhere, the gumballs at the mall, the lights on the side of a restaurant, the Detroit Tiger English D, the New Balance shoe in a shop window, to the ever present orange barrels, orange is everywhere! And the orange car? I followed it for a few miles before it turned into a Wall-mart parking lot. Then I circled the lot until the driver went inside. Couldn’t resist showing you an orange car, right? Cars + Michigan. Can’t beat that.
You can see other interpretations of orange here, here and here. And I bet, if you look around, you’ve got a little bit of orange somewhere near you! It’s nice to look for some color during these last long days of winter. Show us what you found!
