Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for red. One of the primary colours, red often indicates danger. It is pure energy, loud, demanding to be seen. Think of a red ladybird, a red rose, autumn leaves and a sunset. Passion. A heart.

Time x Square

Time for another square month hosted by the lovely Becky. The photos don’t necessarily have to be of a timepiece, but are open to interpretation to reflect time in some way, or sayings such as ‘the passing of time’, ‘a stitch in time’, or time running away from you.

Day 22: Collection Time

To join in with the Squares challenge please visit Becky for instructions. Remember the only proper rule is that the photo must be SQUARE.

And Yet More Post Boxes…

Some of you following this blog may remember my dip into Post Boxes? Well last week in Barcelona I was very chuffed to find a yellow one! Yay!
