Not My Forte—CFFC

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is moving into a region that will be difficult for me. She’s focusing on colors, and I am partially colorblind. This week’s theme is “Pink Lemonade Color” and I have to say, it’s not a good one for me. I joke that I oculd get by with the Crayola box of eight crayons. Red is OK, but if it fades toward pink, I’m not so sure.

The pictures in my gallery are once that had the word ‘pink’ associated with them. I’m not sure the sunrise/sunset photos include any pink, but I hope they do.

  1. For someone who isn’t sure of pink, you got some good ones! I especially liked MiMi’s contribution; she did that deliberately, no doubt, knowing some day you would want a photo of a pink tongue. That pink granite building is an imposing entrance to the city.

  2. My husband’s uncle was color blind — red was green and green was red. He certainly had trouble with traffic lights! LOL But he said once he figured out how to tell which light was ON, he was fine. My poor husband can’t tell orange from pink from red. I just ignore whatever he says and go with it… LOL Life’s too short to argue about colors, unless it’s going to be the entire outside of our home!

  4. For someone who is partially color blind, you did an outstanding job with today’s challenge!

    You know without a doubt my favorite is MiMi’s pink tongue! The trash receptacle is clever.

    Flowers and flamingos and sunsets are gorgeous.

    Happy Monday Dan. Hope this will be an extra productive week for you. Good grief, is that December knocking on our doors?! 😵‍💫

    • Thanks Ginger. MiMi is always happy to stick her tongue out for me 😏

      I searched on “pink” and posted what came up. I couldn’t post the ones of Maddie with her pink toy. I tried, but…

  5. You are working around your perception limitations just fine. The perception disabilities that worry me are the ones who cannot or will not realize their perception is limited. The ones that cannot see empathy, or science, or poverty, pollution, or the violation of other genders and ethnicities rights.

  6. I am going to call your sunsets “pinky orange,” because who doesn’t love one in any color? My favorite, though, is MiMi’s (or is it MuMu’s) pink nose and tongue. For obvious reasons. ;-)

    Have a great day, Dan.

  7. A vast majority of men are color blind, I hear. Well you’ve done a beautiful job of honoring Cee’s color challenge. These are some of my favorite hues soI think I must join in. That pink tongue though…🥰

  8. Pink is a tricky color for me also, Dan. I describe it as the color of any formerly red item after I accidentally wash it in hot water…which I have done twice. You’d think once would be enough? Pink Flamingoes are always a safe way to represent Pink!

  9. I’m not a big fan of the color, pink. I’ve been told I look good in the color, yet when I look in a mirror, I don’t like what I see. I admit, most sunrises and sunsets would suffer without the pales red. Still, it doesn’t do a thing for me.

  10. Love the photos, Dan, especially the kitty :) Hubby is partially colorblind, as well. He can’t tell red from green and uses the order of the traffic lights as a means of judging rather than the color. Let’s hope they never change them!

  11. Thanks for thinking pink – and capturing so many examples. Who knew there were pink trashcans? I mostly like pink, I think. But then there’s PeptoBismol – my mother’s go to remedy for EVERYTHING. Ugh. The sight of it being poured into a spoon was enough to make me throw up or get well in a hurry!!! :D

    • Cee’s challenges are fun, Robbie. I joined this one, “for the summer” when I was too busy to write a post on Sundays. I really enjoy it, and I enjoy starting the week with a little less stress.

      Your three favorite colors (pink, orange and yellow) blend together for me along with red. Yellow tends to pop out, but I’m hard pressed to distinguish between pink and orange unless the color covers a lot of space. I guessed that there was pink in the sunrises and sunsets because I saw red.
