Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been noticing splashes of colour infiltrate the blogging world, but it wasn’t until sexy seductress, Lola DiMarco, nominated me to take part in Travel Supermarket’s Capture the Colour competition that I finally understood what was going on.
The idea behind the competition is simple; each nominee chooses 5 travel photographs to represent each of the following colours: yellow, green, red, blue, and white – and the winners get some shit-hot prizes.

Let me be honest with you; when Lola tagged me I got all Spartan on the idea and thoroughly believed I was going to tear up the contest with my mind bogglingly wonderful submissions.
That was, of course, until I had a quick look at some of the other entries from people who are good photographers. People who don’t take their photos with a Tesco-value digital camera, squinting with one eye open after a bottle of wine.
I can’t compete with an array of images of this calibre – I’m only a mere mortal after all.
So, after a minor breakdown in which came to the conclusion that, not only do I fail at photography, but I also fail at life… I picked myself up and decided to look at it from a different angle.
Ever since I wrote my post on Kuala Lumpur’s Batu Caves, I’ve been desperate for any opportunity to talk about how much I loved those monkeys.
So without further a do, here are my five monkey-themed entries…
What this photo doesn’t tell you is, before that little monkey settled down for her snack, that beautiful necklace of flowers was wrapped around my shoulders as I posed for a photo. After a lot of screaming and hair-pulling, I decided to be the bigger person and let her have it.
Look at his little face; his heart sinking as he checks the calorie content of what he’s just eaten. This is exactly how I feel after I lose control at a buffet.
What do you mean it looks like I’ve photoshopped this photo to alter the colour of the label on my
water coke bottle? Don’t be crazy! Look at the baby monkey hanging onto her tummy instead! Cute, right?
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I got when this little guy managed to get the lid off this bottle – I swear it was like watching man discover fire for the first time. Also, I’m not sure what was in the bottle, but I can tell you he was absolutely wired afterwards; smashing his way through the cave like it was 1999 again.
And finally, the gaffa himself. Proudly displaying his genitals like a majestic King Louie, just waiting for the ladies to flock to him like bees to honey. How can they resist?
So, who’s going to go next?
I’ve decided to nominate five of the sexiest bloggers around to take part…
Toni from Reclaiming My Future
Dina from Gardens and Wildlife
Lauren from Never Ending Footsteps
Elle from Veni VidiVici
Tom from Waegook Tom
Can’t wait to see what you come up with guys!
