Hello, here we go again, exploring some yellow around the world. But first of all, I would like to ask you: Have you seen and found some things yellow since reading the first part of this post you would not have thought of? Curtains, mugs, underwear, glasses, advertisement, toothbrushes, drinks, fancy cakes…
As promised in my last post, Sulphur-crested cockatoo let me fly to my beloved continent Down Under on his back and here we are now on a continent where things seem a bit different than elsewhere. Especially, when it comes to the wonderful natural world of Australia. Many species are endemic – meaning they originally only occurred in Australia – and they look quite special, too. Whats more, I found some in yellow for you to enjoy!
Acacias or wattles as this family of flowering trees is called boast more than 700 species. Most of them are native to Australia as are the following.
Australian signs are particular, too. You have to be aware of animals, of course, especially during nighttime. But the road can also be used as an airstrip for airplanes of the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Going through these images, recalling the journeys, and diving into memories, I am getting homesick, but I am also grateful at the same time for the collection of treasures I have in form of photographs and stories. I am sure you will have more to read about this part of the world on my site in the future.
Shall we move forward? No, let’s have an ice cream first. In the middle of nowhere, kinda.
I know, the ocean in the background has a colour that blows your mind, at least it does so with mine. But since I chose to talk yellow…. I gotta stick to it, sorry ;-).
So let’s fly on to another spectacular continent on Planet Earth: Africa. Just a small impression here yet again. And it starts with money, for it also comes in yellow. Does your country have yellow coloured money? Switzerland has, Australia has, and Uganda has.
In Namibia you do find flowers that imitate elephants, can you see it below? It is such an experience to see the desert come alive after rains in this breathtaking country.
The sun is the biggest thing yellow. Sunsets and sunrises. I never get enough of them, do you? I have several hundred images…. more of sunsets, though. Most probably because I am a lady bird and not an early bird.
Only one of the following is a sunrise, do you guess which one it is? They are a choice of pictures I took in Botswana and Lanzarote. The latter is actually closer to the African continent than it is to Europe, that is why it may well appear here.
Then there is nothing more beautiful than smiling humans. If they wear yellow it is even better for they appear in this post now :0). I wanted to finish with this picture as I am sure it will go straight to your heart, but then I have to go back to Europe for now. Remember, you can always scroll up again and enjoy their smiles for as long as you want. They were and I hope still are members of staff at Humura when I had the pleasure to be in stunning Uganda. Rest assured that you will find smiling faces wherever you go in this country.
Alrighty, leave the warmth of the Tropics and wrap it all up with some European yellow.
This was it, I guess. I hope you enjoyed the many yellow impressions and you may find yourself relaxing in a yellow meadow from time to time.
Thank you heaps for visiting!
