The Brenda Photo Challenge

This week's Brenda's Photo Challenge theme is ORANGE; and when visiting my best friend in Houston a couple of weeks ago, I found these subjects while shopping at The Village.


Isn't this tree trunk interesting?



As we were walking back to our car, I found this very dignified lady with the sweetest smile taking a little rest from her shopping.  I explained the theme for this week's challenge and she was delighted to participate.  I wish I could wear a turban with the same amount of panache.   :D

For more ORANGE-themed photos, click here.  Enjoy.

Until next time, God bless.

That tree trunk really is interesting and very orange. Wonder what it is? The lady in the turban has the most beautiful smile. She is lovely in orange.

Hope you have a great weekend.

PS, I have my trail cam and so far I have discovered skunks, possums and one raccoon as patio visitors. All of this is just outside my back door! Busy place.

The woman in orange is so accommodating to pose for the challenge, she's dressed in orange which looks so nice to her!

The lady has the most radiant smile! And the orange dress suits the radiance in her face! I too am fascinated with tree trunk textures! Great photos!

Strange tree trunk but it has a lovely pattern. The lady's smile is as bright as her orange dress!

That lady was a great sport! She has such a lovely smile and you KNOW from wearing such a bold color that she is not a wallflower either, LOL. You did a lovely job on this challenge! You should do more portraits - you're a natural.

That tree trunk is very unique. I would love to touch and feel the texture of it. I need to be braver about asking people to let me take their picture:)
Great job!

Very interesting tree trunk.
How nice of the woman in orange to agree to the shot. She has a wonderful smile and she looks great in orange. I wish I was brave enough to ask to take pictures, I'm such a wimp sometimes...lol
