Lens-Artist Photo Challenge – Colourful

Tina challenges us to brighten up our lives this week. I’ve gladly accepted the challenge and went rooting around in a few of this summer’s folders to get some fresh photos not used before on the blog. I’m going to begin with a face I’ve been looking to use for a while… this colourful chap can be found adorning the wall of a derelict building… adding a splash of colour in an otherwise monotonously drab industrial wasteland…

Next… the colour of decay and old age… paint flaking off the hull of a boat that’s way past the end of its useful life. Well, now it adds a colourful focal splash to Arklow’s North Quay – memories of better days are like paint flakes… they fade and drop away with time…

The first time I took part in a Lens-Artist challenge I featured butterflies… but hey, I can’t do a colourful post without featuring a butterfly! This Painted Lady added a flash of colour to the otherwise blue/ purple background. Just by the way, the blue is the sea…

Finally… Ireland is a green, very green ‘lil island. Renowned the world over as the Emerald Isle. For good reason… it rains a lot and the warm Gulf Stream helps keep the temperature mild… so, there isn’t a profusion of colour about all over… however, Ma Nature sees to that just beautifully… by supplying stunning sunrises and sunsets! This was a particularly rewarding splash of sun glow… ending our evening on a very colourful note!

Stunning Arklow summer sunset… light reflecting beneath the Nineteen Arches Bridge!

PS – I liked the effect of the reflection on the car roof… that’s why you got this version of the scene!

PPS – Happy Monday… do set realistic targets for the week…

PPPS – Less that four months to Christmas!
