Apricot {Shana} You're in Love, Charlie Brown

My week has been interesting......Had a sledding accident that has left my back less then perfect. I am walking around like a creepy old man. I will say that my husband has gone above and beyond taking care of me. What a blessing he is.
 My husband and I stay with his parents when we are home from Turkey and this back injury has kept me home bound and desperately looking for apricot. My father in law and I share the same passion of books. So I was skimming his ever growing collection and found a book that was his as a child and fell in love with it.

I wish someone had recorded me trying to get this shot. It was quite hilarious if I do say so myself.

You still have time to link up for gray. Happy hunting!

Ortakoy {Sheryl}

When this color came up, I was a little more than distressed!  It is definitely not my favorite and I am pretty passionate about it!  LOL!  But I got up yesterday thinking that I should just go for a walk and look and see what Istanbul has to offer. 

  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this boat!  It was apricot!  I shot so many pictures that the fisherman was beginning to worry.  I had to get out of there before he charged me!   I am so enyoying that I have to get out and find something.  It's like a scavenger hunt for me -- requiring me to get out of the box! 
To read more about my walk and the whole adventure of yesterday, check out my blog The Altered Passport.  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to post your link Sunday.  There is still time for your GRAY links --
---- Sheryl

Happy Valentines Day! 
This is a selection of a tile porch from Ephesus!  And it is Apricot!

Apricot? {Natalie}

Hey y'all! When I first heard of the color choice I thought, "hm that could be challenging." Boy was it ever! I searched high and low all week for apricot. As I was practicing piano I happened to notice this. Now I practice everyday and see this as I practice so you can imagine my surprise when I realized how close it was to the color. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for following us on our colorful endeavor. We all enjoy it so much! Have a great weekend!

Hmmmmm, Apricot! {Jeana}

Well, this has been an interesting week to say the least...Record snowfall, my son's wedding (finally!), more snow and APRICOT! But I made it through it least I think I did! Not so sure about the apricot thing but as I cleaned my house after the family weekend mess, I looked for apricot things and this is what I came up with!

I used to collect carousel's of all kinds and this one caught my eye as I was thinking about this weeks color. I would never have thought this to be apricot but it was as close a match to the crayon as I could find!!

Happy hunting everyone! Keep your pics coming. We enjoy looking at everyone's "vision" for the weeks color.

Until next Wednesday.......have a blessed week!

Apricot, really? {Kendall}

Hello photog friends!  I really didn't love this color choice...but I know there will be weeks and weeks of colors that are not my favorite since we do have sixty-four colors!  I love orange, but apricot?  Not so much.  I was complaining to the Sheryl, Brooke, Natalie, Shana, and Jeana that I had no idea what I was going to photograph and as I was typing my complaint, it came to me!

This beautifully funky, awesome necklace was made by my very dear sweet friend Cindy.  She just started a blog and I would love for you to visit her here.  I took her several charms I had, but the main one, which you can't really see well in this picture, is the face of a watch my great-grandmother gave me before she passed away.  I don't typically wear gold, so Cindy mixed some bronze, silver, and gunmetal together and I love it!

I am l-o-v-i-n-g all of your gray entries.  You guys rock!  I want to give a little love to Larissa over at Adventures of Matthew and Larissa.  I love how she added the crayon to her photos and the colors are spot on!  Great job. 

I look forward to what you all find this week for this not-so-fab color.

Until next week,

Your Crayon Box

Today I spent most of the day viewing your gray colored photos, which are great by the way, but as I viewed many of them, I noticed that many of you recently found us and while you are playing along with our current colors, I see that you still want to go through and complete our past colors. I think this is great and encourage any of you who have just found us to go ahead and go back and capture what you have missed! I also want you to know that you don't have to go back and capture the colors you may have missed, we want anyone to join us at any point of our colorful journey.

But if you happen to be one that wants to have a full box crayons at the end of the journey I thought it would be nice to have a link up to show us your collections! Now this will not be a participant list...which we do have, so if you have not added your name/blog/photostream to the list please do, that way we know who is playing along! will be a link up to share your collection! Giving those who have just joined us or those of you who have been following us but missed a few weeks a chance to share the weeks you have missed and were not able to linkup. As always, there is only one entry per person/blog and the link you add must be the DIRECT link to a flickr set or blog page dedicated to ONLY Project64 photos, no other photo challenge photos may be included (if you used a Project64 photo for another challenge simultaneously then this ok, because it's still a Project64 photo). You must also link back to us and/or include our button. If the guidelines are not followed then I will have to delete the links

So when is this link up you ask? I will open up a linky on Monday February 28th, everyone time to catch-up and spread the word about our catch-up day. This will also give everyone time to get their collections in order!

If you have any question about this link up please leave them in the comments section so we can address them before the day of the link up!

Week 6:Color Reveal

Sorry guys for posting this so late!  I thought I'd watch a movie with my hubby after the boys went to bed instead of blogging. Normally I would of stayed up after the movie, but I was one tired mommy after a weekend of sick little boys and snow shoveling! Anyway, your here to see the new color you will be hunting this week ...It was a tricky one for me, I hunted everywhere and wouldn't you know I found it right under my nose! Well, more like right in front of me, I was cooking dinner and pondering about all the places I could find this color and when I looked up it was staring back at me.

I found the color hiding in a bowl full of seashells that we had taken home from the beaches of the Carolina’s. We were actually visiting the family of our colorful contributor Natalie; we had brought them home as little mementos of our travels and good times with family!

While the color of the week is slightly lighter than my finds, you can find all shades of the color in my shells, from light to dark. Plus there are shades that match the wrapper as well as the shade found in the actual crayon…I also got a chance to use my new micro filters for these shots and I always love the chance to try out new toys! So amidst all the snow, I found the color hiding in the memories of warm sunny beaches!
Good luck hunting for the color of week 6, the pale creamy color of apricot! Hopefully while searching you run into some fun memories or get a chance to learn a new skill or improve you photography! Afterall that is what this project is all about, having fun, learning and improving though practice!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for more Apricot inspiration and on Thursday for the reveal of our monthly winner! You can vote for your monthly favorite until Wednesday at midnight and link up your Gray photos until Saturday!

Happy Color Hunting!
