    For this week's challenge - choose a color and look for it all week. Post 1-3 shots each day where "your" color is dominant in the photo or adds just the right accent. Choose wisely as there are no "swaps" once you commit to a color. At the end of the week, post a collage of your favorite photos to showcase that color. I'll leave it up to you to decide if black and white are colors but, no b&w photos allowed for this challenge. As usual, please post only new photos taken for this challenge or taken this week. And remember, this challenge is for fun - not every photo that you share here has to be portfolio worthy, just participate. What's important is that you get out there and look around and shoot!!!

    These were taken yesterday. This weekend is another road trip, and next week is the geo user's conference, but I'll do what I can. Maybe MLW will turn purple from the temperatures in New England.

    Because my favorite black (just like white) is not a color, I chose the color "red" for the most beautiful color of my youth. Little weird day today, so this quick snapshot of a red (Philips) Senseo coffee/espresso machine.

    I love the way red complements black and white.

    It's planting time here on the farm, so with the hectic schedule the only colors I'll be seeing are John Deere green and dirt brown - I'll go with green.
    Had a pretty good sunset last night followed by wind, the wind made for some less than ideal conditions in the dark.

    Sunrise! Gorgeous, late-winter sunups are part and parcel of the Pacific Northwest region. This is on Sauvie Island.

    That gorgeous sunrise is stunning. Looking forward to see where else you spot that John Deere green this week.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! I guess going with green for the challenge was fitting for today. Here's leprechaun Sawyer, grandchild #7, sporting the green.
