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:

Red

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

Yellow

Green

Blue

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!! :-)

  3. Thanks for sharing the albums. Belize shots are gorgeous and NYC in the snow is a rare opportunity. So glad you captured both for posterity.

  7. The capture of the fireworks is ace. Looks like two big, giant, red dandelions on the sky.

  8. What a great collection, and that snow storm is such an incredible shot….there’s something so magical about the twisted snow covered trees set against the oh so familiar skyscrapers. Good luck!

  12. The photos are all so beautiful, I am glad that I do not have to judge…but…if I did – my favorite is yellow. I really love the green, but I really don’t like spiders (although I do like that they eat other bugs).

    Thanks for visiting my blog :) Please visit again.

  15. Very colorful! My favorite is the photo of the spider! That says a lot because I’m scared of spiders! Lol
    Also, I noticed in your bio you’re a neuroscientist?! My son (age 13) is studying Neurology for middle schoolers for his homeschool studies!! So cool!

  16. Interesting collection! I thought of nominating you, then thought you must already have been nominated :) Anyway glad you made it, made us see some of your great collection! If you like, have a look at my collection, would love to hear feedback, I guess one of the aims of these competitions is to learn to present and become more critical

  20. It may be a little crab and not really a spider —
    But that doesn’t make it okay for the arachnid-challenged among us.
    Ex that, I love all the other photos.
    (Numbers one and two, the red and the white, seem more like paintings, wonderful paintings, to me.)
