TravelSupermarket is hosting a photo contest. They ask to submit five photos representing the colors red, white, blue, green and yellow.
Can you please help me decide which of the three following options I should submit? I got all confused after sifting through my numerous galleries…
Photo Contest Option I: Rajasthan, India
I compiled a few impressions from a colorful trip to Rajasthan. Should I submit this collection to the contest or rather the ones below?
RED: Red Fort in New Delhi
WHITE: Elegant Bicycle Guy in Jaipur
BLUE: Boys Posing in Front of a Motorcycle
In India you always need to take photographs of objects quickly or you’ll end up with hordes of kids in front of you.
Here I was obviously trying to take a photograph of the motorcycle…
GREEN: Oberoi Udaivilas Hotel Pool in Udaipur
YELLOW: Palace Guard wearing a Yellow Turban
More photographs from the colorful trip to Rajasthan are available from my blog here.
Photo Contest Option II: Stonetown, Zanzibar
I always knew I would travel to Zanzibar one day for no other reason than its exotic name… “Zanzibar”… how would you not want to travel to a place of that name! Okay, there’s also places called Uagadougou, Dar es Salaam or Jaisalmer and Viña del Mar, but you’ve got to start somewhere…
Anyway, here are my color proposals for the photo contest:
RED: Kids Playing in Stonetown’s Street
This could have been the ‘yellow’ photograph, too. But I’ll explain later why it’s the ‘red’ one.
WHITE: Stonetown Shopping Street
Shopping Zanzibar style: The streets in Stonetown are very narrow yet atmospheric. And you can easily get lost, the streets all look very similarly!
BLUE: Fisherman’s Business Bicycle by the Beach
Or should I allow myself into the competition?
GREEN: Shy Girl Hiding Away her Brother
YELLOW: High Tech Communication in Zanzibar
I know, calling this the ‘yellow photograph’is a bit of a stretch. But since above photos could also have gone through as yellow/green I thought I could get away with it…
More photographs from amazing Zanzibar are available from this post.
Until here I figured mixing photos from different trips would be too easy.
But then I actually read what the judges were looking for in the photos and I came up with yet more options.
So now I’m fully confused.
Life is rough…
Photo contest option III: From all over the world
Should I go with these? And which one exactly?
RED: Lonely Poppy Flower in Sicily, Southern Italy
From an awesome Sicily roundtrip in beautiful Italy.
WHITE: Wedding Dress in Masseria Cimino, Puglia, Italy
Check out the stunning Masseria Cimino in Puglia, Italy, if you care for exceptional rural stays and a round of golf by the sea.
Or should I enter the contest rather with this shot?
As seen in Masseria Bagnara, still in Puglia, Italy. I would probably have chosen this one had there been the “Orange” category…
BLUE: Mexican Hacienda or rather Indian Maharaja Palace?
Enjoy an exceptional hacienda roundtrip in Yucatan, Mexico!
And from yet another roundtrip, this time again from Rajasthan: Check out the top notch luxury palace Oberoi Udaivilas in Udaipur.
GREEN: Vietnamese Traffic Policeman or Spanish Golf Course?
More photographs of this traffic policeman at rush hour in Saigon, Vietnam.
From a golf week with golf pro Mischa Peter in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.
YELLOW: Nice Lighting in Swiss Hotel Restaurants
One of Giardino Mountain‘s hotel restaurants, as recently opened in St. Moritz in the Swiss Alps.
But I could as well see this other restaurant in the competition…
Fine dining yet again in the Swiss Alps, this time around in La Val hotel in Brigels.
But now – I decided to go with this New York City taxi cab. It’s odd Ken already came up with the same topic, but I will still try this one…
… it’s not like I was aiming for this shot. I discovered the policeman only while developing the photos from a trip to New York City…
