Tag Archives: Photo competition
Last week, fellow travel photographer and blogger friend Laura Cook of With A Hope – whose photography I also love – nominated me to join in the Capture the Color photo blogging contest out of the UK.
The challenge is to post five photos that capture the colors red, green, blue, white and yellow.
It’s no secret that I love to show color in my shots — particularly when it comes to landscape and cultures in the Caribbean and Central America, where I’ve traveled the most the past three years.
But this time, I’m leaving out the landscape.
I chose to focus on the color of islands beyond the seas and the mountains or rainforests: the one that’s reflected in the people, who are full of energy and spunk, proud of their roots, living life to the fullest with what they have and without whom that pretty Caribbean landscape wouldn’t be as fun of a place to visit.
Let me know what you think! And please retweet it if you love it, there are some yummy prizes to be had (wink)!
I’m happy to report that I was selected as a Finalist in The Guardian UK’s “Been There” April 2010 Photo Competition. The theme was “Architecture.” This is my second time being published in The Guardian. The first was here.
I snapped this shot in July 2009 when I was inside Paris’ fabulous and infamous Galeries Lafayette. Built in the shape of a theatre, it’s hard to miss the glamorous interior of this uber-chic department store.
You know you’ve gone from fashionista to photographer when instead of digging through clothes, you’re mesmerized by the architectural design of a place. At the end of the day though, it’s all art, isn’t it?
