Weekly Photo Challenge: Color
At the Kiwanis Hunger Run, we assembled at the Woodlake Botanical Gardens, which is a well-hidden treasure right on the main street skirting Woodlake. I wanted to go back and take pictures of the gorgeous roses before it got too hot for them to be beautiful anymore.
I’ll start with the over-all color palate, and narrow it down to individual colors.
As I entered from the side street, I felt like Dorothy following the Yellow Brick Road. Sadly I left my red shoes at home.
Keep in mind your job here. Your assignment, if you choose to accept it, is to find the perfect colored rose, indeed the perfect rose. If you don’t think yellow is perfect, let’s move on.
This one is a little deceiving for the princess who thinks she is going to get just a pink or salmon colored rose.
But let’s assume that the perfect rose is pink and only pink.
To some ROSES are RED, and only red roses mean anything. Is that you?
Okay, maybe red isn’t your thing. Do you prefer more of a mix?
Or maybe you like more of a blend of pink, rather than yellow/pink, maybe pink/yellow?
Maybe you can’t decide between red and yellow. This next choice might be what you would choose as the perfect rose.
Of course, if you can’t decide on one color, you can always combine them all and get white.
Maybe you should just site for a bit and ponder. Picking perfect is exhausting. Oh, you can’t find the bench? It’s right there with the pink roses. See it? Don’t worry; these roses don’t scratch. They’re perfect! 🙂
Portland, City of Roses, eat your heart out! 🙂 And may the best rose win. 🙂 Tomorrow I take my FIRST photography class, and Saturday, an all day photo shot – “Wildflowers.” I can’t wait! 🙂
Where is your favorite garden?
