Foto Friday – #cyw Color Your World, week 3

Here are the colors for this week’s Color Your World Challenge by Tourmaline

I have resumed working on my novel Here Lies a Soldier – a story that is set in both modern day and in the time of the First World War. As I opened up the Pages file and dusted off my notebook, I was reminded of my 2013 trip to the Flanders region of Belgium – where many of the dreadful battles of The Great War were fought. Many of the fallen soldiers from both sides of the conflict are buried here. We visited two of the Commonwealth cemeteries just outside of Ypres and toured the ‘Flanders Fields War Museum’ -a very somber and moving experience. This week’s photos are from this trip.

1. Asparagus: the shade of the grass at Bedford House Cemetery outside of Ypres.

2. Aquamarine: the backdrop to a display of gas masks used during the Great War, In Flanders Fields Museum, Ypres (the color is a bit of a stretch, I admit…)

3. Gold: a chandelier in the lobby of our Brussels hotel

4. Chestnut: the door in the wall of Tyne Cot Cemetery outside Ypres

5. Plum: the coat of arms in the tap room of De Halve Man Brewery in Bruges

6. Manatee: the stone fountain Mannekin Pis in Brussels

7. Silver: the dome on the gateway of Tyne Cot Cemetery, outside Ypres.

  1. Wow 😮!!!
    Just imagine that..
    a place full of colors if you only stop to look around and find the beauty in it..

    It’s a sad setting.. so many won’t be able to noticed all those prominent colors over their sadness and grieve…

    Thank meg for pointing out what we would have missed…

    1. Thanks! It runs for 120 days starting January 1. I’ve been doing all the colors just once a week instead of every day, like most people. It gives me more time to either find the right photos or take new ones!


    1. Thank you! I am not actually doing what I hoped with this challenge: Learn how to use the camera better… hmmm… maybe when the weather gets better. I have no motivation!

      1. I went out for coffee earlier and took a detour to see if I could find anything good to photograph for the challenge… but that got me nowhere. I haven’t posted for it all week… I’m not sure if I’m just going to post some here and there or what. But I kind of fell off the wagon! Haha 🙂

      2. It’s a lot of photos! I have taken some pretty ones from the snow storm, but none of them fit the colors! Well, I hope you still post a few here and there, at least!

  2. What a great collection of photos! I thought the colors were great. Oh, btw, I just saw a news story that the Eagles rookie kicker graduated from LTHS, which is coincidentally my high school! Now that I have a personal connection, I’m very excited about the Super Bowl 😉
