If I thought last week’s challenge to find something yellow was next to impossible, I cannot begin to explain how hard finding something orange was…  Seriously, where is all of the orange stuff? Kid you not, even the pumpkins were white. White pumpkins?! What is that? Then I remembered that I’d picked up some oranges on my last trip to the grocery store, so I took them out of the fridge and snapped away.

The Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge is hosted by Alicia at Project Alicia, Kristi at live and love…out loud and Rebecca at Bumbles & Light. There’s also a flickr group and a Pinterest board for those of you who are looking for some photographic inspiration…

The themes are:

21 ~ Orange
28 ~ Red

4 ~ Purple
11 ~ Brown
18 ~ White

To participate:

Share your favorite images inspired by the Autumn shade of the week each Friday. Your image must contain at least 50% of the color of the week; the autumn shade should be the main focus of your photograph. Selective coloring is discouraged.

Images can either be linked through your Shades of Autumn blog post or to a picture on Flickr (please do not just link to your blog’s homepage). You can also add your pictures to the Shades of Autumn Flickr Group.

Don’t forget to hit the linky, it’ll be open from 12:01 AM Friday to 11:59 PM Wednesday, and grab the badge.
