What Do You Think Of When You Hear The Word Orange? #SundayStills #photography

I’m delighted to be hosting the Sunday Stills photography challenge for the next two weeks while host Terri Webster Schrandt continues her blogging break.

Sunday Stills photography challenge

This week’s theme: Orange.

What do you think about when you see or hear the word Orange?

A different type of orange tree

I always think about autumn when the word orange is mentioned. For me, orange is somewhere between a red hot summer, and a cool blue winter. Where does orange fall for you?

Food also comes to mind with the word orange, especially the fruit with the same name.

Freshly squeezed or ‘as you are?’

Other types of food are orange in colour — for example, pumpkins, which also remind me of autumn.

Pumpkin pie or Jack-o”lantern?

Talking of food, different shades of orange can also make food look fresh, mouthwatering and tasty.

How many fruits are orange?

How about putting our ‘themed’ colour with a food? Does the sound of orange cheese tempt you?

The cheese-mobile

Would our world look more appealing to visitors if it were a different colour?

The orange planet

Can you think of any inhabitants of our world that are orange?

This is the strangest, orange creature I’ve come across on my travels. It’s known as a Cone Monster. They seem friendly but are very territorial, so my advice is to keep your distance.

Please keep your distance!

  1. These are wonderful orange items! What a gallery! Very interesting what you did with the globe! I didn’t realize how much orange was in my life until I saw the challenge. I had so much more and so little time! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Lisa. I like my orange globe. It lights up the room lovely during the dark evenings. Perfect for the autumn and winter months.

      Thank you for joining me for Sunday Stills. I’m hosting it again this week before Terri returns next week.

      Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  2. As I scroll down the comments, I’m still cracking up from Liesbet’s comment because it was the exact thing that came to my mind lol. But seriously, before that I would have said orange is/was my signature lipstick color. But since Covid came along, there’s no point wearing it now. 🙂 xx

  3. My mind is so warped that the first thing I thought of was the “orange” hair color of a certain crazy guy in charge of a big, influential country. Sad really, but he’s such a daily topic that it unfortunately is a part of our inner and outer beings! 😦

      1. Thanks, Hugh. I refuse to speak his name in conversations as he’s not worthy of being mentioned, but if the name is needed, never ever in combination with the title he doesn’t deserve! Luckily, other, more pleasant things are orange as well. 🙂

  4. I love orange, Hugh, and you have a great collection here! That cone is hilarious, but cool art! Thanks for taking the SS reigns this week and next. We just moved everything home from our delta campsite, complete with a smokey orange sunrise and temps hitting 108! Looking forward to cooler temps when we travel up to Washington this time next week!

    1. Thank you, Terri. The cone monster scared me when I first saw it. Now I know to leave them well alone.

      It’s been a blast hosting Sunday Still again. Thank you for inviting me to host.

      I hope the temps drop soon and you’ll get some autumnal relief in your part of the world. Washington state has a similar climate to that of the western part of the UK, so relief from the heat is on its way. Have a safe trip.

  5. Hi Hugh, I can’t say that I love the orange globe, Hugh, but the food looks delicious and inviting. In spite of the fact we live in the center of orange groves, and our high school colors are orange and black, most of the pictures I take don’t have orange in them. I picked one particularly gorgeous orange rose for you, though. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for hosting Sunday Stills. Great job! Here’s my post for today. https://tchistorygal.net/2020/09/06/in-the-garden-labor-of-love/ Have a fruitful and inspiring week. 🙂

    1. Hello, Sue. Thank you for joining me for Sunday Stills this week and welcome to the Sunday Stills community.

      I’m glad you like the slider. It’s a neat little block which I’ve meant to use for some time. Today was my chance.

      Yes, autumn is my favourite season. I love all the different colours Mother Nature shows us during this season.

      I’m not sure why, but your comment went straight to my WordPress spam folder, so I had to fish it out. It may be a one-off, but worth checking if the comments you’re leaving on other blogs are also disappearing into spam.

    1. I’m glad you liked the slider feature, Jacquie. It’s a neat little block that I’ve been meaning to use. Today’s post seemed the perfect chance to try it out.

      Thank you so much for participating in Sunday Stills.

  6. Great post Here’s some trivia Did you know the color orange was named after the fruit? When found the Orange was the color Red-Yellow and was named for the Duke of La’ Aurange. After a hundred years or so, folks thought it was tedious to say Red-Yellow so looking at the fruit they named the color Orange

    Keep laughing

  7. Orange is kind of fall color what with the changing leaves and pumpkins. I like your orange globe a lot actually. Is that an effect or a real globe, possibly reflecting global warming? Your slider wasn’t working for me until I changed my cookies setting. Those kind of things seem to vary from blog to blog, theme to theme. Don’t know why. Anyway, here’s my post for this one: https://grahamsisland.com/2020/09/06/sunset-at-the-old-coastguard-station-in-kohala/

    1. I like your take on the orange globe, Graham. I purchased the globe a few years ago. It lights up the room nicely, especially during the winter months.

      Sorry to hear the slider did not work. I can’t think why it would not work. It’s something I’d recommend you report to WordPress. It could be that the theme you use has a bug which they can fix. Nevertheless, I’ll leave it to you to decide what if any action you take.

      Thanks so much for participating in this week’s Sunday Stills.

      1. Quite cheery in the dark winter I’d imagine. I think the slider’s just a browser setting thing, no big deal. I often have to use slightly different settings for different sites.

  8. Hi Hugh, nice photos!!

    When I think of orange I think of orange groves. I live in Florida. When we lived in SE Florida there were orange groves about 10 miles from us, as the crow flies. In the winter months they bloomed and smelled soooo good. On nice days I would open the windows, and sliders and let the heavenly scent of orange blossoms fill our home.

    Orange also makes me think of pumpkins. Them and scarecrows are my favorite fall decorations.

    I hope all is well with you! It’s been a while since I’ve visited your blog.

    Take care.

    1. Hi Lea, what lovely thoughts about the colour orange. Like you, orange always reminds me of objects to do with autumn. Living near orange groves must have been amazing. I only wish I could grow oranges in my garden. I bet they’d taste so much better than the ones I buy in the supermarket.

    1. Hi Debbie, thank you.

      I used the ‘image compare’ block for the photos with the slider. Very easy to use, although ensure both images are the same size; otherwise, it does not work as well.

      Yes, beware and keep your distance if you see any orange cone monsters. They may look harmless, but they dislike anyone (or anything) invading their personal space.

    1. The fruit salad was what I ate for breakfast on Christmas Day a few years ago, Cathy. Of course, a bucks-fizz with orange juice was also on the menu.

      You’re welcome about the shoutout. Thank you for hosting Sunday Stills during August.
