    Such vast collection of orange stuff around the world. I’m really impressed, Empire State, spice market, then tulip flowers, and more of them.

    Wonderful selection:) I’m heading to Amsterdam for King’s Day and I can’t wait to witness the sea of orange, such a fun and uplifting colour! – Ginette

      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ We love that photo too! An unexpected result when we initially snapped it.

    I love orange! Those pictures always stand out in my Lightroom catalogue and I’m drawn back to them over and over. You selection is great, I love the vibrant deco detail on the Empire State Building photo ๐Ÿ™‚

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:

      Thanks Rachel for your comment! The Empire State Building picture was a last minute addition for something different to the rest of the style of natural or lighting orange ๐Ÿ™‚ Orange is such a feel good colour!

    This is a cheery, bright, interesting, and fun collection…
    And there is my favorite fellow… Tigger! I love the way he always bounces… I guess that’s what orange can do when you let it;)

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      March 8, 2015 at 10:04 pm

      Love Tigger too… he is so happy and so full of life ๐Ÿ™‚ Loved the way you described the collection: “cheery” … orange does that to you!

    You could add the Orange Show in Houston to your list. Everything there is painted orange!

      Ooh… will have to look into that! We’ve never heard of it….

      Thanks Leya! Orange is naturally vivid, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚

    When I first read that the challenge was orange, I though I wouldn’t have much to show but I was wrong. I see you had plenty of choices too. This is a great collection and my favourite is the spices, obviously in a market somewhere. Very exotic looking.

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      March 8, 2015 at 10:02 pm

      Thank you!! The spices were from the Spice Market in Istanbul …. We will duck over and check out your oranges!

      PS – we went to QUESTACON in Canberra today and we saw an Ames Room… and we immediately thought of you ๐Ÿ™‚ Sooo cool!

        the eternal traveller said:
        March 8, 2015 at 10:04 pm

        Excellent! Did you get to go inside?

        The spices reminded me of the ones we saw in the souks in Oman. The scent was incredible.

          wisemonkeysabroad responded:
          March 8, 2015 at 10:11 pm

          Yes we did! It was soooo cool. Especially when you see on the screen how gigantic one is the other. It was awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

          So thanks so much for sharing the photo with us a few weeks ago – it taught us something new and we felt so excited to be able to experience it too today ๐Ÿ™‚

            Isn’t it fun! I’m glad you got so much pleasure from this. If you ever go to Wanaka on the South Island of New Zealand, there is another Ames room at Puzzling World, as well as a wonderful maze and other optical illusions. Justin Beaver had some fun there! https://theadventuresofjustinbeaver.wordpress.com/2013/03/13/how-many-miles/

            Fabulous – we have been thinking of the South Island for our annual trip for 2015 – so if we get there – we shall see check it out ๐Ÿ™‚

            We had a great time in NZ. You should include Akaroa, Wanaka and Fox Glacier on your itinerary. I’ve written posts about them all. The scenery is amazing.

    Those orange tulips blew out my retinas, I think! That’s vivid with a capital ‘V’.

      We love tulips a lot so were delighted to have been able to see them at the the floral display in Singapore last year.

    It looks like orange follows where you go, Monkeys. Such vibrant photos. The Tigger photo is so random. I’ve never worn a costume like that before but I hear you get very hot inside after ten minutes ๐Ÿ˜€

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      March 8, 2015 at 1:48 am

      Hahah! Yes – this challenge has inspired us to want to look at what other colours follow us around ๐Ÿ™‚
      And the Tigger photo was thrown in because he is…. orange (of course) ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ You must be a cheese fan!

        Indeed I am, however more of a standard cheese fan, those fancy ones are just not for me ๐Ÿ™‚

          wisemonkeysabroad responded:
          March 8, 2015 at 10:01 pm

          Same!! We are just the standard cheese… that don’t smell too strongly ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great shots, as usual… The orange spices are quite awesome…

    These are so good! I love the spices and the one after the sunset, where is that?

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      March 7, 2015 at 7:53 am

      Oh dear! The photos randomly change layout each time so not sure which one was after the sunset. Can you describe the one you’re asking about?

      But the spices were from Turkey – the Istanbul spice markets.

        Mani (A New Life Wandering) said:
        March 7, 2015 at 8:11 am

        oh, I didn’t know they change ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s hard to describe, looks like an isolated place, a building, maybe a house? blue sky on top. stacks of something, maybe hay?

          wisemonkeysabroad responded:
          March 7, 2015 at 8:16 am

          LOL – well described ๐Ÿ™‚ That one we took while on the Camino in Spain. Taken at sunrise – we were busy looking at the sun coming up and then when we turned around to continue walking what we snapped was what we saw.

        I have been and I hope have been, too. Looking forward to spring!

          Whereas we are sad to see spring and summer go! Autumn is lovely but then that means winter is only a few months away.
