ORANGE you glad I didn't say banana?

It's Friday.

I can't tell you how nice it is to FINALLY be able to say that.

It seems the sun going down at noon (OK, OK....5:00 in the afternoon) is wearing on me a little worse than usual this year. It's wearing on me so much, that I think I'm going to get up tomorrow morning, grab a blanket to lay on, and just find a spot in the middle of my yard. I'll lay there as long as I can...soaking up as much (50 degree) sunlight as humanly possible.

I thought I'd roll with the outdoors frame of mind, and use it as the afflatus for this weeks Thematic Photographic entry. Thanks to Carmi for providing the inspiration!!!

"...theme, orange. To be a part of the fun, simply post an orange-themed pic on your site, then leave a comment here so everyone can find it. Repeat as often as you wish. Click here if you'd like to learn more about Thematic Photographic."

Taken one evening during a kayak trip on the Upper Iowa River. We finished paddling for the day, went back to the cabin, made some smores and hung out around the campfire.

The sun is going down in this picture at around 9:00 pm or so. I hate summer. The heat, the humidity, the bugs....... But this is one thing about the season I love!!! :-)

Beautiful! I really hate the early sunset too, but would not want to live in hot equitorial climes to have more sun year round. I'm gonna pull out another orange photo for this!

Nice picture! I don't have much in my portfolio that would fit within this theme.

@ Badass - I didn't think I did either, until I found this one. :-) :-) :-) :-)

@ Brook - can't wait to see your take on orange!

Orange I glad that someday my kids will learn a knock-knock joke other than this one?

@ mjenks - I thought I'd pick a post title everyone would groan over.

Seems to have worked. :-) :-)
