Photo Hunters - Orange

Haven't played along with the in a while and frankly I've missed it. This summer really derailed life in many ways. I dislocated my knee back in June. Tore my ACL and meniscus and damaged the cartilage on my femur where my bones crunched together. The summer itself was consumed with the repair and a long recovery, with very little energy to do anything else, esp. blog. And I still have a ways to go yet.

But the end of August symbolizes the beginning of fall (even though officially it will be several more weeks before it's arrival). And I'm happily saying "good-bye" to summer with a renewed hope that I can come back to blogging with new vigor. Time will tell I suppose.

So I'm jumping (figuratively, of course) back into The Hunt and have found a photo I took of something "orange."

Photo Hunters - Orange

I saw this photo that I took last spring and it made me feel happy. I could use a little more happy lately so it seemed like a really good choice.

You'll find more "orange" things at the blog of - the creator of The Photo Hunt. (for which I'm grateful) And also, if you'd like to find a place with easy links to many Photo Hunters' blogs, you can always drop by my bloggy and photographic friend, Napaboaniya. Her photo choice for orange is terrific!

A delightful photo. Welcome back to the hunt!

I hope you are on the road to recovery. I am still hobbling myself after rupturing my quadriceps tendon in February.

Happy weekend

I hope you get well soon! Yes, you're correct, the orange flower is such a happy sight. The color orange is a very calming color for me.

That is a fabulous shot indeed. The colors are irresistible.

Have a great weekend.

Oh my goodness Ann! You have had quite the summer. How did you ever keep up with all your cuties? Praying that leg gets healed soon!

Your orange choice is beautiful.

Carver said...

That's a great shot for the theme, beautiful. I am also so glad that fall is almost here. I get very drained in the summer and look forward to cooler weather. I am so sorry that you have been dealing with a long recovery this summer. I hope you will be completely recovered in the near future. Happy weekend.

It's been a very strange summer for many. I am glad to see it go. I love autumn.

I hope you recover quickly!!

I hope you can come visit my "orange" stuff at New York :)

Have a great weekend!

The ACL and meniscus are tricky to heal! I know it can feel frustrating, like 1 step forward then 2 steps back, but hang in there and you'll be back to running after your kids.

I've also been away from PhotoHunt and its good to be back! BTW I've got some great giveaways over at that I know your kids will LOVE!

happy weekend.

I love this picture.

And I love you happy even more! So take as many of these as you'd like!

I broke my little finger on my right hand on June 8th. I also tore the tendon from the bone on the end knuckle. The healing and recuperation seems so much worse than the actual accident and is more painful too. I sympathize fully with your leg situation as that would be much worse than a little finger. I hope your recovery is almost complete.

I love that colour of orange that is verging on bright yellow.

This orange shot made me happy as well, I'm sure all that seen it felt happy too! :)
