You Capture: Color

I was very excited to hear that this weeks you capture challenge was color!

Ever since the snow melted, we've been left with nothing but brown and gray outside and it was getting a little tedious.  I was so looking forward to seeing some color in everyone's photos.

But that meant that somehow, I'd have to find color too!
And Beth promised some super-special-extra-credit brownie points if we found color outside.

(Really, I don't need the brownie points, but I wouldn't mind an actual brownie. 
Now that would be a shade of brown that I wouldn't mind seeing! )

yum...brownies


Alright.. so, anyway....
If you saw my last post, you'll know that we got a fairly warm day recently and I dragged the kids out to a local farm/park to enjoy the day and look for color.
I can't say that we found a lot of color in nature, but there was a veritable rainbow of colors all around us in the form of farm equipment, etc.  We just had to look.

And so... I present to you the color RED!


and ORANGE!




 YELLOW!



 GREEN and BLUE!




 and, finally, PURPLE!


This post was brought to you by the Letters "Y" and "C"
and all the colors of the rainbow!

You capture is made possible by viewers like you.  :o)
So go check it out!

Oh... and my daughter has some very colorful pictures on her blog too.
