Three in Mellow Yellow

The Word of the Week Photography Challenge is (mellow) yellow this week.

I thought I’d feature three of my shots starring the color yellow, each with a different mood and different memories for me.

As I have said in a few of my other posts, my husband gives me fresh bouquets of flowers every few weeks. This is a favorite of mine. It was one of the first prints I sold when I opened up my online art gallery. Usually I place the bouquets on a mirrored shelf… you can see the flowers reflected here.

The sunflower is a strong, deep yellow.  My second capture is of a more delicate, mellow yellow fellow. I took this on our ranch in McCall, Idaho in the summer of 2012. Butterflies surrounded me and I was snapping away… they were so quick I wasn’t sure if I caught any of them. When I downloaded them I found this delicate thing sipping nectar.

This last photograph says Southern California to me. At this time of year we simply go out to our back yards and pick a few lemons or oranges from our trees and enjoy them in cooking, juicing or eating. These are lush Meyer lemons our good friends picked for us to take home after a great dinner and delicious conversation. I experimented with the Color Splash app to highlight the mellow yellow effect.

There is something so cheerful about the color yellow for me. It lifts my spirits and brings a smile to my lips. Please visit A Word in Your Ear to see more wonderful explorations of the word yellow and to join the challenge if you wish.

As always I welcome comments on this or any part of my blog.
