Perspectives - A Photo Challenge: YELLOW

It is week 2 of "Perspectives - A Photo Challenge" hosted by Lena B Photography, Agape Love Designs and When Shutters Click.

This week's challenge was YELLOW!

It was a hard one for me. Apparently I don't take many pictures that have yellow in them - especially since I went digital.   I had to hit photo albums from some of my trips to find something that would work for this challenge.

1.  I saw this lone yellow daisy (or is it a Black-Eyed Susan?) at a roadside park between Charlevoix and Petoskey where we had an evening picnic.  Taken with a Canon T3i, kit 18-55 lens. Settings: 55mm,  ISO/100, f/5.6, shutter speed 1/100.

2.  This photo is from my trip to China many moons ago. I saw this little guy in Tiananmen Square with his mom.  She was so proud to show him off to the foreign lady.  I thought he was just too cute for words and looked so happy. Photo taken with 35mm camera.

3. This is another old school 35mm camera photo from my trip to England.  (I have decided that I traveled a whole lot more when I was single. :-D). London in the spring is beautiful and I found this hill of daffodils while sightseeing getting lost. You can see my head just poking out above the flowers in the upper left corner.

Here are the deets so you can join in if you like. I really hope you will!  I would love to see the photos that mean Summer to you.

Each week the hosts will choose a "theme" and on Friday, they ask that everyone link up 3 different photos representing their PERSPECTIVE of the week's theme.  It's all about YOUR perspective & interpretation!

{If you don't have a blog, you can link to a flickr account, etc. They just want to see your photos!!}

By the way... you dont have to be a professional photographer to join in!

You can even use your camera phone. (I know I will!)
They just want to see YOUR perspective!
They want to see how YOU view the world. :)
So don't by shy, or afraid to join in!

The following week, each host will choose & highlight their favorite photo from the linkup!

The second linkup is going to be happening today, July 27th...
Link up your post with 3 photos you've taken to represent this week's theme:
