Capture the Colour Entry: What a Wonderful World
I woke to a dreary, wet Monday morning here in Alba (The Carpenters wouldn’t much like it) to find I’d been tagged for Travel Supermarket’s 2013 Capture the Colour Contest. I beelined for my favorite cafe, hunkered down with a cappuccino, and got to work sorting photos. A perfect way to brighten a soggy day!
How it works: pick a photo for each of five colors (red, blue, green, yellow, and white), post, then nominate five blogger friends.
My regular readers know I do a Song Pick at the end of my posts, but today it’s upfront so Louis can serenade you as you read.

Piedmont Harvest 2013 Kicks Off: Harvest started in late September here in Piedmont. There was an unmistakable buzz in the air. Here, I caught sight of a tractor packed with Moscato.
BlueWater Polo, Italian Riviera-style: What a sight. On a walk back to Rapallo from Portofino we happened upon an ocean-side water polo match (yes, he’s really standing like that).
The World Needs More Gardens: During my floral genetics days (yes, that happened) I had a trip to London planned. Everyone said, “Go to Kew Gardens.” Pure magic.
Vats of Polenta: Polenta, made the old-fashioned way in the Barbaresco village of Neive.
The Bride: As she’s carried over the crowd I can only imagine how out-of-focus the scene was in her eyes, while her joy was so clear in ours.
Thank you to Elaine from CarpeTravel for my Capture the Colour nomination. I felt like a little kid reliving my adventures near and far. And, fondly remembering those who touched them.
Suzanne Hoffman, WineFamilies: Beautiful prose meets vibrant images. That’s why I love WineFamilies.
Jeff Burrows, FoodWineClick: Pictures that inspire and delight me. I know his recent trip abroad captured some incredible hues.
Nikki Lucas, Colorado2California: Fun, energetic, and playful – make me miss the U.S., Nikki!
Anna Savino, Italianna: I can’t imagine it will be easy for Anna to select just five. But, I sure hope she’ll try!
Jen Hohn, Intrinsicalities: Last, but certainly not least, a dear friend who inspires me with her eye for design + color. And, always an inspiration in life.
