I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning when I woke up to clear skies and an unfamiliar yellow sphere shining down on this little patch of the planet. It feels like an eternity since I last saw sunshine so it was with glee that I leapt out of bed and watched a European goldfinch flit about the garden in a blur of red and yellow.
Fresh from a few blissful golden hours of sunshine, here are some more yellow sights I’ve found along the way. First up, the yellow archway of Arco de Santa Catalina in Antigua.
A vibrant yellow escalator in Seattle’s Central Library. Almost as much fun as following the yellow brick road!
Startling yellow lichen in Pleasant Valley, just before a baby elk had a traumatic encounter with the American River.
A cheeky yellow scooter abandoned on a rooftop in Georgetown.
Well, all trace of sunshine has long since departed and overcast skies are now lashing rain, so I’m going for a quick walk under cover of my cheery yellow umbrella.
Now it’s your turn so don’t be yellow, get ready with your interpretation of this week’s theme. If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

Fantastic photo of that bird and I love the umbrella as well. Difficult theme, I do not have many yellow things in my photos, obviously… But I did find a few: http://kerlundphoto.se/2014/02/09/travel-theme-yellow-on-a-trip-to-france/
First time for me in these challenge, but I do love travel and I think this is a great idea:)
