Thanks to Natalie from Near Afar, I’ve been asked to participate in Travel Supermarket’s Capture the Colour contest. Having seen some of the competition, I don’t kid myself that these will be the winning shots, but who knows, maybe one of the judges shares my passion for the mesmerizing jellyfish exhibit in Monterey.
I know I’ve said it before, but really, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is just spectacular. I could watch the jellies pulse across the viewing window for hours.
On a stormy late winter day on a farm in southern Chile, pops of green like this single apple hinted at spring being just around the corner. Of course, shortly after I took this picture it proceeded to pour down for the rest of the day, keeping us firmly huddled around the wood burning stove, but only a month later the farm was a riot of new growth.
After a long day of a sunrise flight followed by eating, gabbing and shopping with a girlfriend, a restorative drink was just what the doctor ordered. My passion fruit caipirinha from trendy Buenos Aires bar Mott was as delicious as it was beautiful.
I dug this one from the archives – 2006, to be exact. Before starting our last year of college, one of my best friends and I Eurotripped through Croatia, Greece and Italy. Despite my complete lack of photography knowledge or interest in taking anything more than snapshots at the time, the Little Venice area of Mykonos is stunning.
On my fourth trip to Rio, I still hadn’t seen it all. The Escadaria Selarón had burrowed into my pop culture consciousness thanks to Snoop Dogg, and seeing it for myself for the first time drove home why a superstar would choose this setting for a music video called “Beautiful.” It’s truly a living work of art.
Now for the part where I tag 5 other bloggers. I would love to see shots from these wonderful photographers who I haven’t seen nominated yet:
If you haven’t been nominated but want to participate, do it! It’s the internet, there are no rules here. And then comment with a link because I’d love to see your colorful photos.
