PhotoHunt: Colorful - August 16 - 2008



This weeks Theme gave me a different challenge. Not to find, but to choose and prioritize among my Photos. I have Tons of Pictures that could by all means match Colorful. From Autumn Leaves via Tulip Gardens, Colorful Gardens and People to French Impressionist Painters.

Conclusion: I have to post three, very different:


The mens 100 meters final in the Olympics today. The Winner, Usain Bolt, from Jamaica was the most colorful and sovereign sprint winner I've ever seen. New World Record in a way so impressing and his Colorful joy/show thereafter - have not seen anything alike since Bob Beamons legendaric 8.90 meters in long jump in Mexico City back in 1964.

The second is my Colorful meeting with Suzann. Here she is at the Farmers Market in downtown Saint Paul. Blogging connects People.


My 3rd is from the Glass Painting in the Lutheran Church at St Olafs College in Minnesota.

Excellent choices for photohunt. The runner is a very different choice but great idea. He is such an effortless runner. And the Olympics have been very colorful. Thanks for stopping by.

All three are lovely, although I do like the picture of Suzann at the market. The flowers are so lovely, as is your friend!

I don't follow the Olympic games at all, but indeed your picture is colorful. Did you get your luggage back ? Yes, weather is a problem, that's why I have never been in a northern country not even in north Germany, lol !

i am just catching up from a busy few days. looks like your garden party was a great time, and a fun visit with renny and another friend in oslo.

yes, congratulations to usain bolt but i have to admit feeling favoritism toward the silver medalist richard thomspon....since he is from trinidad, and you knwo how i love that colorful place.:)
