Cities in Color: Orange

Cities in Color : Orange

Created by Melissa, of Melissa Hines Photography, Cities in Color was created to push each other creatively, through finding colors in our local cities.  In each of the bi-monthly publications I will choose three images to share, along with a short story from the artists explaining their vision. Along with the top three images, I will highlight a variety of other images from the month. Melissa then will pick her favorite 10 images, with the top three image’s stories. Melissa chose the color orange for the month of November and it was a fun color for the change in seasons! December’s color is red, which should be perfect with the holidays upon us.

Melissa has chose her top images and they are as followed:

My family visits Mapleside Farms every year in the fall. I knew the pumpkin wall would be perfect for the orange theme. It’s one of my favorite things there! I always try to get a photo of my son in front of it. This year, of course, he wanted nothing to do with sitting still, but I love how it turned out!

It’s a side street, driven mostly by folks who are avoiding the busyness of the main streets, and I rarely notice much about it….until now. I’m becoming more and more aware of the colors of my city and these {orange} colors are the very reason I stopped at the dusk of the day to snap this photo. Beauty in color is everywhere.

It was a quiet Sunday morning and I found myself enjoying some rare kid-free time in downtown Denver. When I came down this street and saw the orange taxi with the orange sign in the distance I knew I’d regret it if I kept on walking. Since I didn’t have my Canon, I pulled out my iPhone and continued on my way regret free.
