October being the Breast Cancer Awareness Month had something to do with my choice of today’s photo challenge theme:THINK PINK. If you’d like to join me in this challenge, keep in mind that it does not need to be a pink ribbon, but any pink-coloured subject. Let’s make this a happy and bright post…
I did not have to go far to find me some pink. This pink delight was practically on my doorstep.
“A woman should be pink and cuddly for a man”. (Audrey Hepburn) Does the same go for a car too?😀
It’s not every day that you see a car on a roof, much less a pink one.
Interesting facts about colour PINK:
it represents caring, compassion and love
it is youthfull, fun and exciting
it is associated with romance and happiness
In Japan, the color pink has a masculine association. The annual spring blooming of the pink-blossomed cherry trees (the Sakura) is said to represent the young Japanese warriors who fell in battle in the prime of life (the Samurai).
Jaipur City is a foremost tourist attraction in India because of its superlative forts, grandiose palaces, vivacious temples, multicolored bazaars, pulsating streets, and its distinguished pink color to which the city owes its oft-used name “The Pink City”.
The Chinese had not recognized the color pink until they had contact with Western culture and the Chinese word for pink translates as “foreign color.”
Marrakesh is another city associated with the color pink. It is sometimes referred to as the “Rose City” because of its salmon-pink colored buildings and the red clay of its terrain.
After an exciting and relaxing summer, autumn usually puts a greater stress and more expectations on us. Shorter days and increasing work load make us forget how to unwind and have fun till we finally fall into a rut. This is what happened to me some weeks ago, and I am sure to many of you too. Hopefully, I will find a way to break this life-draining pattern and come up with a more entertaining story, but until then I invite you to share some patterns and repetitions of your own for this Sunday’s Black and White challenge.
It feels nice to be back here blogging and challenging you again.

I am not an early bird, unless absolutely necessary, and in the last couple of weeks that I was away from blog it was. Now that I am back I am happy to announce that my regular photo challenges will be resumed as of this Sunday with the theme repetition in black and white.
The early bird catches the fish
This heron is stationed a very short distance from my home, and, by the looks of him, will probably stay local for the entire year.
I participate in WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge 2016

NOTE: I am taking a few weeks of blog break. I am not on holiday, just too busy to be here. I will advise you of challenges and posts to come on my Scheduled Challenges page in due time. If you post any entries for the last challenge in the meantime, I will visit you and link when I come back.
You have already noticed that I had introduced a new, recurrent theme within Thursday’s Special – Pick a Word. Every month I offer you a choice of five words of which you are supposed to pick one or more (that’s up to you) and to illustrate it in a photo(s) of your own. This time I’ve decided to post photos for all five of them. What kind of a challenger would I be if I wasn’t able to respond to all my five words😀
So, here is what we got today:
This is Thursday’s Special photo challenge. If you want to participate you are supposed to:
Make a post containing a photo (or photos) on one of the provided five words (you can do all 5 if you wish)
