Yellow on a Gray Wet Sunday

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Searching for the colour Yellow was our plan on Sunday but the cold, gray day with regular heavy rain showers didn’t allow us to wander around outside. Instead, we looked to our own comfort and this is more about how Yellow found me.

We took shelter in a cafe named Nectar, one of our favourites, and I spotted this cheerful modern replica of an antique Parisian clock (“Paris 1879” printed on the clock face). You could say that time stood still because the clock wasn’t working. Nectar is in Princes Street, Dunedin, New Zealand.

To my astonishment Yellow awaited me in the cake cabinet – pretty lemon curd macarons. Had to buy some of course to get our Yellow photo! Worth every cent – they were YUM.

On our way home I asked SO to photograph this bright yellow car parked by the grim, austere King Edward Technical College (a notice on the stone wall proclaims “This stone was laid by Hon. W.F. Massey, Prime Minister of New Zealand, March 20th 1913.”)
