PH: ORANGE - in Sports, Recreation, Nature and Even Politics???

What fun I had with this week's Photo Hunt theme.  It's orange.  What in the world would I find that was orange?

As it turns out, there's a whole lot of orange around us.  And I even came across a picture that's over 25 years old that has orange in it. 

Sometimes there's orange in beautiful sunrises and sunsets. 
Do you see the orange halo around this Summerville street lamp?
I just happened to see an orange bike in a local parking lot.
Heavy machinery might be orange, like these two pieces of equipment at a local rental place.
The name of my blog might be "EX Marks the Spot" but, in these next three pictures, orange marks the spot - or spots - for work to be done.  Orange paint, orange flags, orange signs.
Okay, here's the really old photo - over 25 years old.  Tree, my son (now an attorney in DC who will kill me if he sees this photo) is wearing an orange life jacket.  Behind him are nephews Ross and Rodney (partially hidden) and daughter Tiffany.  Yep, they'll ALL kill me!
Yes, I'm being grandma again.  Orange gave me the opportunity to share another picture of grandson Harrison.
Quite a few sports teams have orange as one of their colors.
In South Carolina, orange means the Clemson Tigers.  Their blood runs orange.
And speaking of South Carolina, here's a picture from The State newspaper of Mark Sanford, our "Luv Guv."  If you're not from South Carolina, "orange" you glad he's not your governor?

I think I once read, several fashion seasons ago, that orange was the new black. I don't think that ever caught on, because orange is such an attention-getter - which you proved! Great selection (and luv your two-faced governor... the photo, that is!)

I'm impressed that you were able to find so many orange photos. My husband would absolutely love that orange bike. Okay, maybe not the color, but he'd love the bike.

PS: I'm back on the hunt!
Here's my entry

Wow, what a collection. I am not sure how Mr Sanford got in, but whatever color he prefers ;-)

Have a great weekend.

Cool collection of orange artifacts. I like the variety. Your grandbaby is a precious 'lil pumpkin.

Pretty funny about the Luv Guv. I wonder how much longer he can keep the hounds at bay.
