Pink isn't my color so when I saw there was an upcoming pink hunt I was at a loss. Then I thought, flowers. I do love some of my pink flowers and I have a ton of flower shots in my old photograph files. I put it out of my mind until we were driving back to the hotel after hiking at the Peaks of Otter in Virginia and I saw that store above. I didn't get my camera ready fast enough for the whole store but as you can see that's one pink store.We were driving through Bedford, VA the next day on our way to some more hikes before heading home when I spotted the pink sign on the side of the Academy of Music. I'll let you decide if the academy is pink, peach or coral and white, as pictured below. Either way, I thought it was lovely.
I had no idea that I had captured a pink house until I got home. It wasn't what I focused on. I cropped it out of a larger picture once I realized, yep, that's a pink house. One cropped view directly below.And then another view below which shows a bit more. I might even like living in that little pink cottage and as I said, pink is not my color. In my imagination, that pink cottage is bound to have a secret garden too. It's practically a secret house as will be obvious in the very last photo.The last photograph shows the full shot that I cropped the pink house out of. I was trying to take a picture of the bridge but we were moving too fast. Little did I know that there was a hidden pink house for me to use for this week's photohunt. You will probably have to click inside the picture for an enlargement to see the pink house but it's there towards the right, protected by trees. Unfortunately the arches on the bridge were only shown off a few yards back from where I was when my fingers went click. The arches of the bridge were what I was trying to photograph but lucky for me there was a surprise in the pictures, the lovely pink cottage. I'm feeling quite in the pink after finishing this post. I guess I could have photographed someone in the picture of good health for that meaning. Since I'm slightly left of most, I guess some would say I could photograph myself for pink but I think I'll stop here. Happy weekend.
