Tickled Pink Wednesdays :DDD

Picture 534

Despite the blazing sun and mercury rising only northwards through most of the year, one thing that fascinates moi about Tropical climes is the high-octane hues they are associated with......it's like fiesta shades define Florida. I was pleasantly surprised to see all those comments about blue being fav. color with many. At one point of time, I stacked only blue and white clothes in my wardrobe. Now it's the more (hues), the merrier!!!!

This one was taken from a speeding car, so could not get to frame it as well as I'd ve liked to .....but here it is :)

this photo tickles me pink, moi! :) although i am a blue girl myself.......

my grandmother lived in florida, and i always loved all the shades of colors, too....totally different from what you see in the mountains here. it's funny how homes and their colors seem to take on the hues and colors of the ntatural settings they are in......

Moi said...

Nazzareno: u can make an ordinary post look poetic with ur words ..:)

Sarad: this time i was prepared....i had spotted the door long before it came to me while waiting at the traffic signal...arka had been given directions to drive slower than usual ....but the bottom part of the door's missing, coz i cud not get the camera to focus right!!! :(

piika : Thank u and welcome here :)

Shammu : thank u :)

Lori : u r right abt the black back-ground pronouncing the effect of the colors ..i too love them, thank u :)

BMM : so true...the closer we move to sea here, the brighter the colors gets..it's awesome to see houses painted in all those colors ....

Cris said...

Hello Moi! Ok, I can see you begging your husband (or whoever is driving) to stop for you to take a picture... well, it happens here all the time, but sometimes it is impossible... you did a great job!

Jen said...

That is a fabulous color! I love the bright shades! So happy:)

Mark said...

Hi Moi,
Love the shot not bad from a speeding car, it just goes to show how a picture can be had out of anything if it is done right.Loke the blue picture too, i think though i am edging towards green at the minute.
Cheers Mark

suramya said...

thats a very bright pink :), love the metal work, wonder if the door is ever unlocked, it looks as though its been locked up for a long long time

Ginnie said...

HA! So you have more than the SC blog, I see! Good job!

Abraham Lincoln said...

That is really some color. Kind of different. I like your work.

Moi said...

Cris : thanx..yeah it was my husband, as always .......and he's learning to take it in his stride ..:)

jen : i love colors too.....I will not mind a sarong in this colour :) and missed u around here :)

mark : i shall do a "green" post for u sometime :)

Suramya : my thoughts exactly.....i did not have a chance to get the details as it was taken while Arka was driving past it ...but the door looks as if its sealed...not opened in a long long time....piques my interest all the more :)

Ginnie : like u i do multi-tasking here :D ...thank u and welcome here :)

Abe Lincoln : Thank u :)

Geraldo said...

Women, always complaining about their poor husbands... See, you got even more compliments because he didn't stop. And when we don't ask for information, is because we know we might end up in a new place with good photo opportunities... :-D

Moi said...

Geraldo : hehe ..there are always 2 sides of a coin, right!!!

Annie said...

That door is pretty in pink. And to think you caught that photo from a speeding car!

isabella said...

Glad to hear you were not driving ;-)
This rose color reminds of the Old Florida of Hemingway's times...

Gardener Greg said...

That reminds me of Rainbow Row in Charleston. I need to get a picture of the purple house down the street. Thank you,
Greg

Seda said...

Looks so cute. Pink is one of my favorite colors.

Mr. J said...

It's time to bring in some sober greys.

Perpetual Procrastinator said...

Great door; I like the pattern of the ironwork. And, I agree with the others who say nice work with the photo taken from a car in motion!

Chad Oneil said...

You know what, Moi? It would be cool if you and your husband could meet up with me at Old Town some Saturday night and shoot cars! Or maybe meet at down town Lakeland sometime to shoot?

What do you think? It would be a fun time.

Just e-mail me if you guys are ever interested in shooting with me.

JAM said...

I love the old, ornated iron work contrasting against the intense pink. Nice catch!

suramya said...

so did u discover the secret :):)??????????

Kate said...

It's a beautiful door with vivid pink and wrought iron designs. Very nice capture!
