You Capture Color

Photobucket
This week's You Capture challenge was color. Kali and I were recently in Wake Forest, North Carolina for a speech and debate tournament. The competition was held at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. The campus was gorgeous. It was blooming all around with colors - flowers, trees, even the buildings were colorful.

Not sure what kind of tree this was, but the colors were wonderful.

... and some had white. They were all beautiful.

These guys must be used to people because he didn't try to fly away.

And this is my last awesome shot :O). Basically SOOC with no editing. One of my facebook friends told me it looks like an eye right behind the steeple of the church. Awesome God!

Alice ~ What BEAUTIFUL pictures!! The colors are great...so brilliant! Thanks for stopping by "Treasured Chapters." Yes, the beach shot is real--taken from our hotel room when dh and I got to get away for a couple of days (kid-less! :)). And the colored liquid in the cups was egg dye. :) Blessings, Kathleen
