Foto Flip Friday – August Theme: “Yellow” (Week 5)

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 simply: YELLOW

This is the 5th week of the “Yellow” theme (yeah, I KNOW – seems like all this saffron will never end!)  You’d think I would have run out of “yellow” by now, but nope.  Actually, I went a little crazy on this, the last week of the FFF “yellows” and managed to scrounge up a most eclectic potpourri of dabs of yellow from my past travel adventures.  (do mouseover to see a short message on the back of each postcard).

But first – happily, we have another TL reader donation to the final “yellow” lineup:

And as for my own final contributions to the yellow theme – first, we have a set of dainty yellow “bracelets”:

* 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.
 

Next up, a set of long ago (originally F.I.L.M.) images from my many years as a tour operator specializing in travel to Costa Rica (and Belize):

And finally – just for fun, to polish off this month-long “yellow” theme:

And that’s a “Yellow” wrap!  5 weeks of yellow, time to choose a new theme for the month of September, and start a new round of Foto Flip Fridays.

And meanwhile – if you have any bright ideas for a photo theme to challenge me – I’m all ears. “Blue”? “White”? “Sunsets/Sunrises?” “Doors”? “Faces”? Do post a note in the comments and I promise to consider any and all.

Tune in next Friday to find out what new photo theme I’ve chosen for September.

  1. Who would have thought yellow could inspire a month of posts and so many stories! Great photos, again!

      Glad you’re enjoying the themed flip/flops Anita. I must admit, I’m enjoying these little walks-down-memory-lane myself (not to mention… the limited space on the back of each postcard, keeps my tales ever so brief – as opposed to blathering on and on as I’m so otherwise wont to do). 😉

      Do check back next Friday to see what new theme I’ve chosen for September (and hopefully you’ll submit another of your own wonderful photos).
