Weekly Photo Challenge : Orange ( Jingga or Jeruk?)


In Bahasa Indonesia, word ‘Orange‘ has got two terms :
1. A colour, combination between red and yellow and it’s called Jingga or kuning tua.
2. A full of vitamin C fruit, and it’s famous as jeruk (but in Malaysian, jeruk means pickles or acar, while for orange fruit it’s called oren). We call grapefruit as Jeruk Bali.

There are three entries which I consider as orange or the orange effect..just enjoy it and looking forward for the next challenge.

Indonesian local orange has got various species. This is Medan orange and it’s consumed directly, unlike Pontianak one which should be squeezed for getting its freshness. Indonesian oranges are not so orange in colour. It looked ugly in appearance, but it’s not too sweet and juicy. Even I am little bit afraid of bright coloured import orange, then…peace. I love local orange and it’s not too expensive.

What I choose here are colour combination, as I don’t have much time to find out the real orange photos.

Thank you,
