I have spent the majority of my working life involved with color. It’s also been part of my love of art, design and photography. So when my dear friend Lisa from New Life on the Road nominated me for the latest photo competition from TravelSupermarket called Capture the Colour I saw it as the perfect chance to share some of my favorite photographs.
In order to participate, head to the Capture the Colour Photoblogging contest page, read the rules and publish your own post including 5 different travel photos representing each color (red, white, blue, yellow and green).
I love this image taken by my husband Salvatore, he captured perfectly the spirit of the Colosseum in Rome. He has an artists eye for detail and patience to wait for just the right moment. While I wandered with the children it was his turn to wander with the camera arranging to meet us at “the big cross”. The light was just right and the silhouette caught his eye as tourists hustled and bustled about. A moment of stillness and contemplation.
The Cinque Terre holds many delights, many subtle touches that talk of love.
Tiny doors abound in Italy, a tiny door for a tiny girl.
There are no whiter sheets than those blowing freely in the wind, taken at Portofino.
The view from the window of our Italian farmhouse Borga Nari, this tiny house across the valley called us to explore.
Now it is my privilege to nominate 5 other travel bloggers to take part.
