Capture the Colour 2013

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa of Where’s my backpack? has nominated us to take part in Travel Supermarket’s Capture the Colour competition.  Ailsa herself has entered some great photos—do check them out!!

The rules are simple: “publish a blog post showcasing five of your favourite travel photographs which best capture the colour of our five categories: red, blue, green, yellow and white.”

We did enter the Capture the Colour competition last year, and in fact our Green photo was included among the top 11 Green entries!

Choosing the photos is always a lot of fun. So, here are this year’s:



This year’s Fourth of July fireworks, New York City. (More photos are here.)

The day after a winter snowstorm buried New York City’s Central Park in January 2011, as the sun finally came out… (More photos are here.)

Dawn over the East River, New York City. (More photos are here and here.)

Crab in a shell, Belize, March 2010. (More photos are here.)



Musician at this year’s Coney Island Mermaid Parade, New York City. (Story and more photos are here.)


The rules ask us to nominate other photo-bloggers to participate in the competition. However, it seems that pretty much everyone we know who is inclined to enter has already done so. Apart from which, there are barely hours left to enter the competition, which closes today, October 9th, presumably when midnight strikes in the UK. So we won’t nominate anyone specifically—but if you do wish to enter, consider yourself nominated, and hurry!! :-)
