As my regular readers may have noticed I do enjoy taking part in photography and travel memes. The latest to have caught my attention is another one for travel bloggers, ‘Capture the Colour’ from TravelSupermarket.com and I was delighted when Heather from Traveller’s Playground nominated me.
If you are a blogger and you’d like to take part, all you need to do is select 5 of your photographs that capture one of each of the following colours – blue, green, yellow, white and red. Pop them in a blog post and then nominate 5 bloggers to take part. You can find the full details of the competition including the superb prizes at TravelSupermarket.com.
Whether or not you are a travel blogger
I hope you will enjoy my ‘Capture the colour’ collection.
The blue skies and sea of Boa Vista
One of the islands of Cape Verde, Boa Vista, has some of the most beautiful beaches and bluest of seas I have seen anywhere and what better place to enjoy the view than at the end of this blue painted pier.
The lush green vegetation of Kerala
India is one of my favourite destinations and I was lucky enough to spend a wonderful few days there floating along the back-waters of Kerala on a rice boat, paradise.
Fading yellow walls
I once spent the afternoon exploring the Cape Verdean town of Mindelo on the island of São Vicente photographing these wonderful old buildings some of which have been abandoned including this beautiful house which even as it crumbles is an elegant reminder of days gone by.
A white winter wonderland
I don’t often get the chance to photograph snow but London at dusk a couple of years ago looked magical covered in a white blanket of snow and I love this image of a couple taking a walk along the River Thames.
More of my photographs of London are on Flickr.
The red turbaned camel herder
Wearing the traditional red turban of the Rajasthani shepherds,
this young man cares for his young charge with clear affection.
And now to pass it on, I nominate…
Suzanne, from The Travel Bunny and my recent travel companion in Italy
Lucy, from On the Luce
Jo, from Restless Jo
Meg, from Meg Travels
Dani and Jess, from Globetrotter Girls

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.

Book your hotel or package holiday
Rent a car
Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.
Book an experience
When I’m travelling, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.
