Foto Flip Friday – August Theme: “Yellow” (Week 4)

Welcome to another edition of Foto Flip Friday – a selected showcase of photos dredged up from my bountiful photo archives and whittled into pretty little “flip/flop” postcards each Friday. And to add to the fun, each month I’ll challenge myself to unearth a series of images that meet a monthly theme.

This month’s theme is: YELLOW

This is the 4th week of the “Yellow” theme and I’ve found another set of saffron images from my travel photo archives. This one a portrait of a most distinguished gentleman I met at a wedding that I was lucky enough to attend as I sped by motorbike for 4 days from Kalaw to Inle Lake.  (do mouseover to see a short message on the back of each postcard).

(simply mouseover the image and watch the *magic!)

* Well o.k. for those viewing in IE, not so much a magical “flip” as a fading change. If you want to see the flip/flop, try viewing in Chrome or Firefox.

And here’s another lemony image – a crumbling wall in a tiny village in Aswan, Egypt:

As August is a five Friday month this year I’ll be rummaging through my archives for more “YELLOW” images this coming week, so check back next Friday to see another yellow flip/flop postcard or two from my past.

And meanwhile – if you’d like to submit a “yellow” photo of your own, just upload it to an online source (e.g. your blog, Facebook, Flickr, etc – make sure the privacy settings are set to “public”), and post a link to it (along with whatever note you want on the back) in the comments below (before midnight EDT on Wednesday, 27 August, please).

Who knows?  I might just whittle it into a flip/flop digital postcard here!

  1. Love the idea of attending a Hilltribe wedding in Myanmar. Travel gives you so many unexpected experiences that you just have to be ready to reach out and hold on!

      So true, Anita – and it doesn’t take anything extraordinary. Just an open heart, and flexibility. That’s why I never travel with a set-in-stone itinerary. You never know when that local wedding or weekly candlelit market (which I witnessed later in my skip ’round Myanmar) is scheduled for the day AFTER you’d planned to move on.

      I have tons of pics of all, if I can only manage to peck the posts of my many adventures in Myanmar. So stay tuned…!

  2. Thanks to you, I now have tags for ‘yellow’ and ‘gold’ in my photo album. I’m glad you picked a color that pops while scrolling thumbnails.

      Yes FLN, I only recently started tagging my many photos (so easy-peasy in bulk, in Windows Live Photo Gallery) and I’m loving it. And yes too, I like this “color” theme thing. Not sure what I’ll do next month for FFF, but am tempted to continue the color theme, perhaps with “white” or “blue”.

    Gorgeous pics, really feel the culture.

      Thanks Sue, glad you like my latest “yellows”. Yup, that’s primarily why I travel – to experience the many different cultures around this wondrous globe.
