Weekly Photo Challenge – Colour

This week’s weekly photo challenge from WordPress is Colour (using the Canadian/British spelling of it!)

I take a lot of photos with lots of colour. I love bright colours and they always attract me. I notice coloured doors, houses, flowers, signs, designs, cars, costumes, and so on. When I have to decide what to include for this challenge I have a wealth of choice so I had a think about it and decided to theme it around buildings in living colour.

Think Pink – Sweet shop in Keswick, the Lake District, England

    I love taking photos of colourful buildings too! I’ve never seen those buildings in Keswick, though. I’ll definitely look out for them next time I visit. The last photo reminds me of a similar mural in Rhodes. It’s on a wall outside a nightclub, and drunk people always walk into it because they think it’s a real street:)

      They’re in the main square of Keswick. The pink was was taken from a car park behind, going through that narrow little alley way between the red and blue buildings.

        I haven’t been up there in a while, but will definitely look out for them when I do. The Lake District isn’t the obvious place to expect a bright pink shop is it? :)

    I like the first photo. If I was there, I would definitely go inside. And the last one. The painting outside that building is very nicely drawn. :)

    Nice shots… The bright colours are fantastic. I love the first little pink ‘house’ there is so much going on in that shot. I love the little window that is brimming with hats! Very cool…
    BTW Thanks for the visit and follow over at CTB :D

    Love the colour contrast of those post boxes Diane! Thanks for linking this to my post, it’s fun seeing what the different post boxes are like around the world. Love this colourful post too :)
