FMTSO - Yellow

Yellow is not my favorite color, about the only color I detest more would be Orange. I don't own a single item of clothing that is Yellow although I did once upon a time have a Sunflower Yellow blouse. I looked around my house and I do own a beautiful Yellow piece of pottery that sits in the kitchen...




Speaking of kitchens, my kitchen used to be Yellow so long ago. Back when it was mom and dads house, it had a Yellow wall and some hideous yellow, orange and brown flowered wallpaper. I cringe thinking about it! I do however love this shade of Yellow that the Barnwell County Museum chose to paint the new/old building.

The C.G. Fuller House was donated to the county for a library,
it is now being refurbished to house the county museum.


I realized while writing this that my garden holds very little Yellow although I did add some beautiful Yellow Daffodils last year and this year and they were beautiful... perhaps I don't plant Yellow as Mother Nature always drowns us in a fine mist of Yellow every Spring when the pollen begins to fall?

My dreadful Yellow hose! It tangles up and crimps if I look at it wrong!




Spring blooms here in Snelling when the flowers begin to bloom....




and the pollen starts to fall! This is Althea's hand and finger prints on the car layered in pollen.




The Caution Light in downtown Snelling



and the warning sign outside the Savannah River Site gate.



And finally...


the Yellow glow of the moon ... Althea jumped and said she touched it and I believe she did.

(I must have taken 2 dozen shots or more of the moon that night, and aside from lightening it up a little I did nothing else to this one shot that turned out just as I saw it... it felt like something out of a movie).

i love yellow flowers, but other than that own not one thing that is yellow. the only yellow on my house is the phone book. you found much in yellow that i do like though, these are really good. i do like golden sunrises and sunsets and things that are in nature that are yellow, just not clothes or decorations. your yellow pot is beautiful. i just remembered , i do have a yellow flower on the table

We haven't quite got into the yellow pollen season here yet... your photo reminds me of what is to come... (I'm allergic!) Still looking forward to a bit more colour in nature though! - Yellow, orange and brown flowered wallpaper sounds like the 70s? I have yellow curtains in my kitchen which is otherwise very neutral in colour.

Yellow isn't among my favorite colors either, but I sure appreciate its happy glow at the tail end of winter. Nice shootout.

For detesting the color yellow you did a great job for this theme. I really love that moon shot, what a stunning image you captured. It's beautiful.

Great job finding yellow for someone who doesn't much like yellow! The daffodil is a gorgeous shot and the Moon Shot is Super! Well done!

Pauline said...

I think you found a great collection of yellows. Your moon shot is just fantastic, real but other-worldly looking at the same time.

Wow the last picture of the moon is my favorite love it!

Doreen said...

Yellow and orange are colors that I have come to appreciate after moving to the Pacific NW, where many months are gray and dark. We visited Ireland, with a similar climate, a few years ago, and noticed that many interiors are painted these colors. But yeah, I can't imagine wearing orange.
I think your moon shot is gorgeous!
