Ohhhhh, I should have waited.
It was March. And it was still cold. And wet. And rainy. And grey.
|Outside my kitchen window, the building is a pale yellow|
and the cones are a sort of red... almost.
After that I drove around a bit, a good excuse to become familiar with my new-to-me car, which is also grey. (The salesman said he would give me an additional discount if I could decide that I liked grey.)
So I found a Robin and the hummingbird feeder is definitely red and yellow.

This is a great exercise in 'seeing' and I am glad I made the effort because when you start focusing on one thing, suddenly that item of focus begins to appear all over the place.
For days after I finished this 'challenge,' I was still finding spots of red and yellow as I drove about.
After visiting downtown Sequim and a local market, I thought I was done, but I had to go over to Port Townsend and on my way back I captured this sweet shot of the mountains with the yellow strip in the road and the red taillights of the car ahead of me. It's one of my favorite views when I am heading home... love seeing the mountains layer by layer ahead of me.
