Thematic Photographic 224 - Mellow Yellow

World in flames
Shanghai, China
May 2012
This week's theme is "Mellow Yellow". It's as easy to interpret as it sounds: if it's yellow, it qualifies. As you can see here, I went the glass sculpture route, because you can never go wrong with glass sculpture.

Short sidebar: When I was in Shanghai this past May, we went to the Shanghai Museum of Glass. The place was, to put it mildly, like an artistic wonderland. I could have hung out there for days figuring out new and fascinating ways of shooting the unbelievably stunning creations crammed inside.

I guess I'll just have to go back someday.

Your turn: Shoot a yellow-themed pic, then post it to your blog and leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants, and feel free to repeat the process through the week - because one yellow photo is never quite enough. Invite friends along, as well, because photographic insanity is always more fun with others. And enjoy yourself, because that's what Thematic is all about. For more background, click here.

Carmi, your flames rock my world! I can just imagine what a cool place that must have been too. Your theme choice and your mention of silliness completely inspired me- so silly it is- but not in a foolish sense at all!

Spectacular shot, Carmi.
I've tried a few flowers and a dog, of course.

Here is mine.

I started with a Red Salamander (who is actually orange), and then realized I'd shot a video of a nice bright yellow fire in the fireplace.

A bit late to the fray, but here's my take on Mellow Yellow

Kiwi Nomad said...

Ooops trying to use html but got the link all wrong again! Carmi- meant to say your flame is beautiful.
Now to try again with my mellow yellow

I'm woefully late with this, I know, but I promise it's worth it. Besides, I haven't played in so long I figure as long as a post before the NEXT theme is announced, I get a "bye."
