Life in Colour: Orange

Linked to Life in Colour at Jude’s here

A few more oranges before the month is out.

This first one is a hard-hat day. On holiday with Thai friends in Hua Hin, Thailand, I was shown around the site for the new Conference Hall at the Hotel Dusit Thani and then stayed on for the ceremony to appease the land spirits who had been disturbed by the building work.

In contrast we have here some lovely Koi at feeding time as one can guess from the fact that they are all swimming in the same direction, towards the food.

Just a couple more orange pictures. My dwarf climbing rose is just about to give up the ghost for this year but I managed to take this picture a couple of weeks ago when the Indian Summer we are having persuaded it to give out a few more blooms. They all came together which is unusual at this time of year.

There have been lots of terracotta pictures from people which reminded me of the market in Valencia where I always buy some cooking dishes, easily broken by someone as clumsy as me, but I love just having them on the worktops as they remind me of sunshine.

I’m going with the very obvious here, orange is for oranges:

Moving on to Thailand and the orange-robed monks from that country. I have many Thai Buddhist friends and, when I’m there, they usually include me in any ceremonies that they are attending so I was highly honoured when I was allowed to serve the monks at one special occasion.

Pull Up A Seat

It’s a nice seat with a view over some water I seem to remember, but would I want to sit on this icy bench? Maybe not.

Taken in one of the Nordic countries, one of those photographs that escaped the filing system!

 

XingfuMama asks that we create a post with a photo of places one sits or might sit, or art about sitting, and maybe a little background or story about the spot or a picture of the view. Add the tag, “Pull up a seat’ and link to your post in the comment section, either by writing a comment with your URL or by creating a pingback.
