Theme day - The Color Blue

Restaurant at Crayton Cove, Naples waterfront

If you are a frequent visitor to NaplesDailyPhoto you know that the predominant color here is blue. That's what Southwest Florida is all about - blue skies and blue water.
So it wasn't easy choosing a photo for today's theme day, but I think I succeeded...
I'm showing you here everything I love: Mediterranean Blue, Provence and French Cuisine!

Besides, it was either this or the photo below ;-)

Port-a-potty (portable toilet) at a local construction site

I think I'd like to use either either, depending upon the circumstances. PS. How did you get the list of participants since the portal is down?!

I like both photos, but I love the top one.

Denton said...

The Bleu Provence is a much better choice than the blue port-a-potty.

Chris & Deb said...

Leave it to you Isabella to put an amusing spin on the theme day!
Love your humor!

Lavenderlady said...

Well, the first one is lovely...but the second one made me chuckle.

slinger said...

nothing beats 'shock value' for a photo. Great job.

Felicia said...

I prefer French food over porta potties! I'm trying to remember your clever use of the porta potty on theme day before...hmmm?

Olivier said...

tres amusant, je prefere le bleu provencal qui est un tres bon choix, la France a l'honneur.
Very fun, I prefer the blue provencal which is a very good choice, France had the honor.

pusa said...

Peter said...

I appreciate you positive comments about Provence and the French cuisine! However, I just saw ex-shammickite's posts from yesterday and today; the Florida sky is not ALWAYS blue! (I know, mostly it is, lucky lady!)

KMF said...

westondailyphoto said...

Château-Gontierdailyphoto said...

Nice pictures...I prefer the first one...and really appreciate your humour...and the way you told us a short story.
Restaurant...toilet.

Neva said...

I love the sanitation one!!! very nice blues!!

Ann (MobayDP) said...

I love both of them! :)

Jilly said...

Lovely! Almost a Matisse blue, my favourite blue. As for the portable loo, well you'd not miss it, would you? I thought they made these things to blend in with the landscape, be a little discreet ;)

Great post, as always.

Lessie said...

I can't always trust you to make me chuckle. Both are great -- but I love the first best. :)

a restaurant which gives desire for pushing the door.

But it is closed!!

Nikon said...

Beautiful Mediterranean blue, Isabella.
The Porta-John is a nice blue, too :) (I recall a similar edifice on a previous theme day?)

joy said...

JoAnn - NL "My digital eyes" :) said...

Nathalie said...

Hi Isabella, I'll take the first photo as a tribute to the region I live in... but had to laugh at the second !!!

Yesterday's birds are spooky enough to belong to Hitchcock's movie... great choice for a Halloween night and sepia works beautifully here.

marley said...

Loved the photos, second one especially! lol

Zsolt said...

I was sure that I were going to find something special on this site:) And I did...a very blue public toilet:)

Annie said...

They are BOTH great photos for the blue theme today. The first is absolutely great and the second is, well, hilarious. :)

• Eliane • said...

LOL!! I'd say both pictures are very good choices. The first one is a tad more romantic though. :D

Greetings from New York City,
Eliane

Moi said...

Jules said...

I like the second one - I always think it's best to go out on a limb and be different!!!

The first one is stunning though and soooo BLUE!!!

Ben said...

Wow! Nice one! The first picture, I'm talking about.

R&R in The Netherlands said...

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

LOL! What a contrast between the first and second shots, NICE WORK! :-D

Marie said...

Ah ah, what a big contrast. I like the first one better :-))) (normal, since I live very close to Provence).

Glenn Standish said...
