This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks:
It’s a color challenge this week. I don’t do these very often, but I seem to have brought back a whole lot of orange from India and it’s got me seeing the color everywhere. This week the challenge is to….
Photograph the Color Orange
Well as I entitled last weeks submission ‘Banana’ the idea of orange made me chuckle, should I continue with the fruit theme, however it was one of those rare occasions when we do not have an orange, satsuma, or clementine in the house. So instead here are some lovely tulips for you.

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen ‘Orange’ as the theme for their challenge.
“Orange is the color of the sun. It is vital and a good color generally, indicating thoughtfulness and consideration of others.” Those are the thoughts of Edgar Cayce who was an American clairvoyant.
You do not need to be a seer to appreciate the fact that the color orange is a dynamic tint and that when you are surrounded by this life enhancing shade you begin to feel better about yourself and the world around you.
This is the color that my partner Susan and myself have decided to emphasize for the month of March. This is an almost impossible shade to not run into in your everyday life.
With this thought in mind we encourage you to offer us your own photographic interpretation of this warm dynamic color. — gc
So what to choose?
The first a very orange weed, made slightly more orange for this challenge.

And for my second choice, we had woken up in the middle of the night, and gone up to the common to look at the night sky. We found mostly mist and light pollution.

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee asks us:
This week the topic is Orange and Pink and there is no specific topic. I would prefer if your photos of orange and pink in them. If you don’t find that combination, you can use either color, just make sure that color is prominent.
Well I had a look back in the archives, and this was a difficult one! Plenty of pictures featuring Orange or Pink, and a few with both but not very prominent. Anyway I finally found this star shaped Dahlia, the pink is a little fushia, and the orange is a little yellow, but it is almost there.
