Searching for Roy G Biv III: Orange Update #7

Ferry Building farmers' market

Outside my window there's plenty of white and brown but not much in the ORANGE department so this month's search for ORANGE had me looking through the photo archives...and reminiscing...

San Francisco ORANGE

Ferry Building farmers' market
Stained glass window in the Basilica next to Mission Dolores (of Vertigo fame)

Savannah ORANGE

Where did you find ORANGE this month?

If you'd like to join in this month's Search  for Roy G Biv (the colors of the rainbow), just post up to five ORANGE photos on your blog and comment here or on Jennifer Coyne Qudeen's blog. We will link to your photos. You can continue to post comments here until midnight, Saturday, February 22. Can't wait to see your ORANGE!

Here's Joan's ORANGE.  An amazing sky!

Francoise at Creatilfun has some ORANGE surprises (especially that first photo!).


  1. Some very interesting oranges - like those tomatoes - they are tomatoes? never seen stripy ones before and I like the texture of orange on your friend Laura's gelatin print.
    I'm playing along and I have some oranges on my blog.

  2. Hi Maya- yes tomatoes! I enjoyed your yummy orange tour. Thanks for taking part this month.

    1. Thanks, Bridgette. The Printed Fabric Bee does a giveaway every month. Check it out and you may win some fabrics!

  4. I've joined in again this month and there are oranges over on my blog. I'm away now for a couple of days and may not be able to search out all those other oranges till I return - definitely a pleasure to look forward to ...

    1. Thanks, Margaret. I'm adding it to the post right now!

  5. Humorous oranges, huh? Which brought a chuckle - surely not the ferocious rusty hog? Or was it the finely crafted yarn tiger? I love that we both culled thru our photos for this month's color. There may be some orange berries on a bush outside, but I'd have to wade thru the snow to find them...and that's just not happening today.

    Happy Thursday!

  6. Mmmm! So many pretty oranges this month! I especially like the layers/patterns on the orange fencing shot...& the carrot roots...& the cool leaves...&..!
    I've just added some oranges on my blog too...thanks again to you & Jennifer for the inspiration...

    1. Well Lisa, it's always a sensual journey to see what you come up with! My mouth was watering....

  7. Wow, great collection Julie! I am amazed by the stained glass window you found. Awe-inspiring.
    I found some orange while I was packing today.
    Best wishes, sus

    1. Thanks, Susan. I love your orange treasures and the memories associated with them.

  8. I've also been participating in this day of Orange... the real fun is in visiting everyone's choices! The stained glass window is such a WOW!

    1. Hi Mary Ann- Some beautiful orange artworks! Thanks for participating.

  9. Some beautiful examples of orange, here, Julie! The amazing stained glass window and the abstract of the orange fence are my favorites. Thanks for letting me play!

  10. Lovely pictures! I like the gelatin prints.
    Thanks for this great challenge.
