Blogger challenge : Capture the colour !

Here at The Madhouse, we always love a good blogger challenge and the one that popped into my inbox earlier in the week is a cracker. The organisers explain : "They say a picture paints a thousand words. Well, rather than asking you to write a five thousand word blog post, we're inviting you to produce a blog post with up to 5 photos that really do 'Capture the Colour'.

We're looking for bloggers to publish a blog post with a photo that captures each of the following 5 colours: Blue, Green, Yellow, White and Red. On your blog post, tell us where the photo was taken and try to include any other additional information about the moment the photo was taken, what you could see, smell, hear, feel and perhaps a witty caption about that photo or trip in general. If you've written a post about that trip on your blog in the past, be sure to link to it so people can find out more!"

Without further ado, here are The Madhouse entries :


The bright white minarets peeking through the dark green palm fronds really stand out against the clear blue sky at this Turkish mosque. Add in the chirping of the cicadas competing to be heard over the mournful sound of the call to prayer and you're instantly mentally whisked off to exotic climes.


Who says staycations can't be fun ?! Hill-climbing with friends is exciting when you're an under ten and the effort is well worth it when you know you'll get to run down the other side like a loony in a couple of minutes!


A yellow rubber ring floating on the rippling blue water of the hotel pool in Antalya, Turkey. Dad gets to relax while his mischievous 2-year-old son has great fun pouring cold water on him - a family snapshot of happy days to cherish !


Extra special room service in this hotel in Monastir, Tunisia, with the pristine white towels and bed sheets shaped into swans and cobras and scattered with fresh flowers.


The jewel of the hotel buffet - a cake iced with the Turkish flag.

  2. Thanks for the tag I'll have to see what photos I can find!

  3. Lovely pic's. Didn't realise you'd already entered when I tweeted you but now I know we're rivals....hmmmm ;-)
