Thematic Photographic 173: Flash of Color

The Host, Carmi at Written Inc.

Flash of Color makes me think of brightness in maybe a not so bright time...in this case fall.  Last November I tagged along with Hubs to Houston. While he went to class, I played. As I got lost one day (sorta) I had turned to head back into downtown Houston, and too see if I could figure out their China Town. As I approached a traffic light I noticed some art to the right.

With the silver grey skyline behind it. All the pavement. The grey skies and the silver/grey cars...well this was a flash of color and I had to snap a picture. Unique considering all of its surroundings.

While in Texas, we also hit a couple Mexican restaurants. In one, color was everywhere!

So here is the second Flash of Color ...

Okay, now color was the theme and you hit it dead on...but I adore Mrs Green! She would look lovely in my garden...visiting here from my new blog site, One Cat Shy of Crazy..

That first picture if too funny. Great color shots in the restaurant.

I giggled over that first shot - the green against the grey is really great! Especially the female form! ;)

And the lamps are fantastic.

I had forgotten all about those lamp shades on the ceiling. I love that design. Those are great shots.
Isn't it amazing how diverse Texas is?

God bless you richly today in all you do.

Great photos. That first one certainly has a flash of colour but the second one is awash in colour. Lovely.
