I had so much fun trying to figure out what and how to photograph for the Nurture Photography Spring Challenge.

I often take my girls to the playground at the park that’s close to our house and when we go there I’m rarely without my camera.

So, as I was walking around, keeping my girls in sight as they played, I looked around for things to focus my viewfinder on and stumbled upon –

the school bus that’s usually full of little boys and girls pretending to go to school.

The safety poles that my girls will always try to climb like little monkeys on the way back to the car.

And then of course, there was lots of fun to be had with the Easter preparations…

colored plastic cups full of vinegar and water for –

Colored eggs

that needed to be decorated and displayed.

    I love the picture of the yellow safety barrier, they look like a row of candy stuck in the ground

    Isn’t it amazing how all those bits of yellow just pop out of nowhere? Like the world around you just knew that you were looking for it? ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the lines in the second photo!

    Loving all of this yellow, you managed to find so much of it! We didn’t dye any eggs this year, but yours look lovely!

      Thanks, Rebecca. In the end I found quite a few yellow things but had to decide what I wanted to use. I just love that school bus on the playground it’s so cute and bright! ๐Ÿ™‚

    love the eggs… we could NOT get the yellow dye to work on our eggs…

    • Susi April 6, 2013 at 8:24 pm

      Noelle, I used pure vinegar this year and it seemed to work. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I forgot how much I love the color yellow until I read this. Great shots! Yellow reminds me of summer and summer makes me happy and now I am happier having read this. Thanks!

    Nice yellows! I was just introduced to this photo challenge, too. Still thinking about linking my old Yellow post… It’s nice how you were able to blend both Yellow and Easter together in your pics. Lovely!

    Next year I may need to dye Easter Eggs. it’s been years since I have.

    • Susi April 9, 2013 at 9:09 am

      My kids won’t let me get away with not dying any Easter eggs just, yet. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Laurie April 10, 2013 at 10:02 am

    This was a fun challenge, and you had not exception!! Great yellow finds;)

      Thanks, Laurie.

    I love the yellow poles! The angle is great.

    I haven’t dyed my own Easter eggs since I was a kid. Every year I say that I will, but then we never do. I love seeing others egg creations though!

    • Susi April 11, 2013 at 11:35 am

      Thanks, Christine. I was trying out different angle but liked this one best. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!!!!
