O is for orange. . .otra vez

O for me is orange-red brick on an old building in the historic Czech Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago where my daughter lives. A close up behind the ornate bars shows a lovely stained glass window. My eyes are always drawn to the complimentary color of orange=green, in this case my favorite blue green/aqua. Call me 'umm, not very creative' but I've used 'orange' for every O round of ABC Wednesday. Oh well.

See more examples of the letter O from bloggers all over the world at ABC Wednesday, hosted by Mrs Nesbitt. Happy Wednesday!

If a thing works, keep using it. This is quite a classic picture, I think.

So glad you came & commented!
Was wee bit worried as you'd not replied to my email, but no probs.

Orange just has to feature in every ABC 'O' - you saw I sneaked two in - LOL!

Take care

Am trying to figure out what goes on behind that well used door -- kind of looks like a tavern, but I suppose there would be a sign or something... Definitely a well used door, though...

Lovely blog. I followed a link somewhere and ended up with a fellow (rather, sister) Minnesotan.

That orange colour of brick is on old buildings in my part of the world also.

This picture appeals to me very much because of the juxtaposition of colors - orange and aqua blue - and the old worn look with brick and bars....
