Deadline to send your pictures is : November 21st, 2012; this challenge is the last one Scott is presenting to us this year. Come and join us ! Thank you Scott, it is always so interesting to share our pictures from all over the world and learn more about photography.

Here are a few pictures I would like to share with you for this assignment :

On a dull Winter day in the South of France, the overall colour in this small alley was beige but for this man’s  striking red scarf and the bright blue gate.

My favourite time for taking pictures is at sunset. I think it brings out depth and brilliance in any colour.

Autumn offers so many possibilities for displaying colours.

An opening to the  light in an ancient church. I particularly like the contrast between architecture and nature.

A magic window in The Cube of Melbourne. Another world is created by the colourful reflections between sky, lamps and decorations.

Furthermore, tomorrow  Friday, March 11,  Scott  will be discussing the many ways that can  be achieved for close up photography. Don’t miss it and enjoy participating if you feel so.

I took this picture some years ago at the pond in our botanical garden. New pictures are requested for the assignment so I will try to do my best with my Point and Shoot camera 😉

More pictures taken on the same day around the garden, one of my favourite places in town at any Season.

Time for  a rest in the vegetation. Softness of shades and textures. Some plants still add a subdued colour in a Winter garden.  Soon, it will be highlighted by the sparks of Spring.
