Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

Blue.  WordPress and their weekly challenge was a little late, and blue.  I wish I’d been here when it was red.  That would’ve been much easier.  And there’s no blogs for me to ping on my zemanta thing.  Sigh.  Not sure whether to wait for a while, or to post now.

But I found a few blue bits :-)

Ruins look wonderful, stark against a sky and when the sky is such serene blue as in these photos – Tintern Abbey during an afternoon, and the Abbey ruins coming up to evening:


many blue flowers & I only know the name of one of them.

The first is of blue leschanaultia, a wildflower in the South West of Western Australia – & the photo doesn’t come anywhere near the intensity of these tiny flowers.  The 2nd photo are also native wildflowers.  Both were taken in Kings Park, Perth, during the Wildflower Festival.


Native wildflowers in Hyde Park, 2011:

And this is a tiny flower amongst the growth at the edge of the shingle on the coast of the English Channel – which is itself all grey blues and green blues and finally clear light blue of September Skies


Of course a certain person was going to be here – drinking from a blue bucket, and the other is a green plush monster on a  blue chair:


The blue wall of a room in a B&B in Whitby, North England, & a blue sign in London:


And this is being very cheeky – 2 of my own pieces of artwork: one of unfinished blue dragons, and the other a blue painting of a spooky tree :-)


Finally – branches of a Jacaranda against an intense blue Perth sky:

I am looking forward to seeing the other weekly photo challenge:blue posts.  :-)

  5. Ahh, yes, I think I see now…her fur’s so dark, I didn’t realize she was a cat! So funny…The shadow in the photo even had me placing her head at a completely different angle than it is!

  6. Love the flowers and the pup with the blue bucket! Lovely shots, all, though :)

  10. Very intriguing blue dragon. The blue bucket one is cute. Lovely Abbey! What a lovely contrast!

    • Thank you :-) Yes, fat kitty drinking from blue bucket, though dreadfully out of focus, is cute. I’m glad you liked the dragons – felt a bit cheeky posting my own awrtwork, but they’re both photos & I love the Abbey myself :-)

    Lovely blues, I particularly liked the Abbey windows, and your ‘certain person’ drinking from the blue bucket, adorable! xxx Ailsa

  17. What were you going on about pinging other Blue shots when you have an over-abundance of blue – from the glorious stone tracery against that intense blue sky, to the sky-cancelling blue of the jacaranda tree. I just loved that – jacaranda is usually so intense in its own right, and here that WA sky has just wiped the colour away. :)

    So many photos of blue, from all over the world. What an interpretation of the theme. I think I love the blue sky through the ruined Abbey windows.
    Thanks for the pingback.

  25. Very lovely blues!
