Colour Week - Monday

I have rather a lot going on this week (none of it exciting enough to blog about!!) so I was a bit worried that my wee blog was going to start looking a bit neglected.....that was until I visited Mountain Mama. A group of bloggers inspired by Elsie Marley are taking part in a Fall (or Autumn as I would call it) Colour week based on Crayola colours.

Monday's colour is Brick Red

This photograph was taken just along from the
Bridge over the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi, Thailand.

This one is of prayer bells outside a Kanchanaburi temple. When the wind blows and the bells chime they carry your prayers up to Buddha.

Lighting incense will also carry your prayers up to Buddha.

and I couldn't resist adding this photo of chillies drying on the roof of a
house in the village of Mae Jong.

Your sunset is a stunner.

Love Mum x

Calico Kate said...

What a lovely idea. I love the colours and that top picture is simply stunning.

Lily Sheehan said...

Beautiful pics. The first is especially breathtaking. I have a vase of incense at home but it doesnt look as nice as yours :S

jenny said...

So the Bridge Over River Kwai is not just a movie title?! ;o)

LOVE the pics!

French Fancy said...

What beautiful photos. And even if you were too busy to blog for a while you'd still have a devoted following eager to hear about Being A Student

JJ - It's a fab photo isn't it!! Chris has a good eye (Well, he has two good eyes but you know what I mean...)

Mum - Wish I could take the credit for it!!

Calico Kate - I loved the idea too. I've actually got all my pictures sorted out for the next few days too :-)

Lily - That shot was take outside a temple in Bangkok....I don't think we would be able to breathe if we had a vase full of that much incense :-D.

Jenny - It's an amazing place....I found visiting the bridge really moving but that was nothing compared to how I felt when we visited HellFire Pass!! My Uncle Will (Grandfathers brother) worked on the Burmese-Siam railway...when I saw the Whampo Viaduct...well, it's amazing anyone survived the construction of it!!

Glad you like the photo's...more to come tomorrow :-)

French Fancy - Awww, that's a lovely thing to say hon!! A week tomorrow and I will officially be a student again *gulp*

As I said to Jenny....more pics tomorrow!! (Gosh I've had fun going through our photo's!!)

Nice photos!!
Makes me so want to get back to Asia!!! Enjoy your days there. England is not such a bad place either!I miss it.

Carol said...

Juniper - Thank you :-). I loved our time in Asia so am planning to base all this weeks colours on our photo's from there!!

I am enjoying being back in the UK but there is no harm in a wee trip down memory lane...

That photo would make a great desktop.

My memories of Asia also include saffron and the intense red of the Hindu temples

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous photos!

Carol said...

Mark - hehehe, I used to have it as my desk top!! (I've now got the worlds longest handmade bridge on it...the photo will be appearing later in the week!!)

The Thai's don't use saffron but I do have some wonderful photo's of Chillies drying in the sun...actually, I think I'll add one of them to this post :-)

Stephanie - Thank hubby will be pleased to hear that!!

M and E said...

The sunset photo is stunning! Is that Bridge over the River Kwai the one they blow up in the old movie?

Ann said...

Great Photo's Carol, especially the River Kwai.

Oh those gorgeous chilli's, why ma'am it makes me want to dive my face into the bowl and eat them all up.

Carol said...

M and E - It's a beautiful picture isn't it!! I wish I could take the credit for it but my hubby took the photo :-)

The movie is not very historically accurate but it's the replacement of the one that was blown up.

Ann - Ouch, I think I was just poked in the eye by your nose!! Such a whopping big lie Pinocchio :-D

Such gorgeously diverse photos.. such a wide range of reds.

Carol said...

Ladyfi - Hehehe, well bricks are lots of different colours of red aren't they!! (I should probably have stuck to the proper brick red but I wanted to share these photos *grins*)
