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!

As Summer Fades

Given that summer is fading fast and the autumn equinox is on September 23rd in the northern hemisphere, it seemed apt to share this post again.

Poetry is something I still find incredibly difficult to write.

This was the first-ever poem I wrote and published on my blog.

I hope you enjoy this first attempt.

As Summer Fades

As summer fades

Autumn colours arrive

Dry, sunny days, now but a memory away

But on she goes, with September here

Gripping my world through her warm green eyes

Do not forget her when the first mists arise

Till she gives out her last breath and becomes no more alive

Thank you, my darling, for your long, drawn-out days

Until next year, we must now say goodbyes
