In the never ending quest to find Roy G Biv,
I scoured London for examples of July's color and found them everywhere.
Hey Julie! This post is for you.
From the buoys in the Thames
to a building neaby
to the dock behind the Tower Hotel
[where we stayed]
yellow seemed to be a favorite color.
It was used to transform a simple door
and add interest to a metal sculpture along the Thames River walk.
Even the graffiti along Brick Lane used it well.
Looking up in London always provided a surprise or two.
This time a bit of color on an office building along the Thames.
The bicycle leaning nonchalantly against this store front
on Portobello Road was a favorite
as were the glass knobs in another shop.
Our last morning in London found me photographing
this sculpture and it's watery reflection after an enthusiastic rain.
There's even one of the most famous yellows of all,
proudly displayed from Tower Bridge.
Back home, these dancing ducks,
that were a gift to the girls from Grandma Joanna,
make my heart sing with silly happiness each time
I watch them shaking their tail feathers to the tune of the sun.
