August 23 – Yellow

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAToday for the photo challenge, we are to take a picture of something yellow.

Yellow is a great color and my sister’s favorite.  Yellow makes me think of smiley faces, the sun, daffodils, and submarines (from the Beatles song, “Yellow Submarine”).

The inside walls of our house are a very pale yellow.  This color with the white trim brightens each room.

I decided to post two photos of yellow things since I couldn’t think of just one.

The first is a yellow flower grown by a family friend.  He shows dahlias in competitions.  It’s beautiful, isn’t it?

For the photo a day challenge, it is a charity prompt.  On Friday the 23rd of August, people all around Australia buy Daffodils and wear yellow to support Daffodil Day.

It’s a day where they grow hope, and raise money to support research and treatments so we can hopefully live in a cancer-free world – quoted from Fat Mum Slim’s Photo-A-Day Photo Challenge Web site.

In the town I grew up in, each spring the Daffodil Man would come downtown and sell his flowers.   You always knew that spring had sprung when you saw him.

May you have a great Friday and enjoy all yellow things you see today.
