Photohunt: Yellow and Sunday is the World Water Day

The photohunt theme this week is yellow. I'm not sure if my neighbor planned for their yellow car cover to match the bush when it bloomed.Another neighbor is from Sweden and their Swedish flag has a cheerful yellow cross.
This building will no doubt end up with the same off white color of the rest of the buildings around it but during construction it has a yellow side.
Last fall/autumn this tree caught my eye with its yellow leaves so cheerful before they fell off.For my last yellow shot I'll include a collage of yellow flowers. First, I wanted to mention that a fellow photohunter Mar told me about World Water Day coming up on March 22. You can read about the UN resolution of 1992 on the World Water Day site. The resolution designated World Water Day to call attention to the plight of the more than 1 billion people who lack access to clean, safe drinking water. You can also check out another World Water Day site which discusses transboundary Water issues and has a lot of additional information.
To visit other photohunters please visit TNChicks home of the hunt.

Nice yellows .. daffs have been planted in the huge concrete 'tubs' used decoratively along Broadway .. they are also there to keep car bombers from getting close to the buildings .. sad but true

Randi said...

Wow..."my" flag!!!
You have been so creative!
I haven´t seen any car covers since I was a little girl...looks cute!
I love your beautiful flower-collage.
I wish you a great weekend!

Love your many yellow shots! My daffodils finally started to bloom this week - a few started on Wed but the rest decided to follow them yesterday! So nice to see! My flowering plum has blooms and several of the evergreen bushes and rhodies are blooming on campus, giving off a really nice fragrance. Yay! I love spring!

Love this theme; I'm quite limited by my post but I am really excited with what others will post.

Love the burst of yellow flowers.

All your yellow photos are fun... especially the car cover...

Liz said...

That tree does look cheerful, you're right. And you have a lovely collection of yellows!

Beautiful flowers.
Your picture of the Swedish flag reminded me of when I was in Milwaukee to buy one for some friends in Crystal Falls and had my pocket picked on the way back to the hotel on the bus.
Poor thing to think of every time I see the Swedish flag.

i love the cheerful leaves before dropping off pic the most

Great pictures. Re the building: You'd like Hong Kong -- where completed buildings can seem to rival those of Miami in terms of their colorfulness. E.g., I seem to spot quite a few pink high-rises about here along with the more usual steel gray, etc.!

You did a great job with the variety. I had fun with yellow also.
I found yellow cars but no yellow car cover. Great shot with the car cover AND the yellow blooms.

Vita Stunder said...

I really love your first shot with the car cover - it's awesome!

Great shots of yellow stuff you have here, Carver! The bush beside your yellow covered car is also an attraction.

I played too hope you can drop by!

Theresa said...

Love that your neighbors helped you out with your hunt :) very creative- my favorite was the yellow tree at the end, just love to see the color on the trees.

sammawow said...

Wonderful yellows! I laughed when I saw the yellow car cover - I used to have a bright yellow Toyota that I called the Yellow Yoder but I couldn't find any pictures to post today!

*lynne* said...

LoL I think that's the first car cover protector thingy I've seen that isn't grey in color :)

Here's my first participation in the Photo Hunt!!

cheers,
*lynne*

Expat Traveler said...

I saw these yesterday but couldn't comment then... Anyhow, I love the building with the yellow that you spotted. It's so unique and different and definitely a find you don't see every day! :)

SabineM said...

amazing shots. WHO buys a yellow car cover!??!
Daffodils are MY FAVORITE!!!!

Colin Campbell said...

Love the flowers.

storyteller said...

What a nifty array of YELLOW today! Perhaps you'd enjoy Mellow Yellow Mondays too? I'm still waiting for my daffodils but shared cheery yellow blossoms this morning too at Sacred Ruminations.
Hugs and blessings,

PastorMac's Ann said...

These are great for yellow! It is amazing that so many don't have what we take for granted many times a day - fresh clean water.

Great post.

Sweetly said...

How lovely! I really like the one of the tree!!

girasoli said...

Great photos! That car cover and bush is cool! Interesting how half the building is yellow. I think it should be all yellow instead of all white. Love the flag, the leaves, and the flowers too. Great set of yellow photos. This was a fun week.
