Awash in Pink (Flower Friday)

Having read a blog post a couple of days ago by Emily Carter Mitchell – Nature & Wildlife Photography regarding the various apps she was currently using for editing her phone photos, within moments I’d downloaded them also.😂

Thank you Emily – as you can see, DistressFX is already a firm favourite!

 

 

 

The Power Within (iPhriday Flowers)

The gerberas  included in my Valentine’s flowers seemed larger than usual. The diameter of these blooms was simply extraordinary!

It was as if these gerberas were created just for the camera… just for me. How lucky was I?!

(EXTRA) ordinary Kale (WPC)

When I took this photo at the supermarket over the week-end, little did I realize how perfect it was for this week’s Daily Post Challenge of (Extra) ordinary.

These water droplets on the fresh kale leaves I found absolutely glorious on the background of bright green. I couldn’t help but take a few quick shots with my phone-camera.

(Extra) ordinary Kale!

It also highlighted how desensitized my children are with my taking photos now as just as I was about to take this photo my daughter called to asking what I was doing. “Taking a photo of Kale“, was my reply. “Okay, see you there then.”

My darling girl didn’t miss a beat and didn’t question what I was doing when she found me, she chatted away as if I was folding laundry at home. Not standing in yet another awkward position, attempting to catch “the shotLOVE IT!

 

 

 

 

 

PAINT Transformations! (Weekly Travel Theme)

This week Aisla from Where’s My Backpack has chosen PAINT as the Weekly Travel Theme word. Having spent so much time in Vancouver over the summer an image from Granville island came straight to mind. Aren’t these characters just gorgeous!

Colourful Concrete

Behind these painted facades are industrial silos for the concrete works. These are just four of the six that stand proudly at 70-feet, allowing you to see them whichever way you approach Granville Island. From the river here’s a close up of the gentleman on the far left.

Concrete Graffiti

 

The details in these works is incredible. Twin brothers, street artists from Brazil who go by the name, OSGEMEOS (which literally means twins they say) were chosen to participate in the 2014-2016 Vancouver Biennale artistic exhibition.

What I admire about these young men who are known for this particular form of very public work of transforming walls, buildings and structures alike into colourful spray-painted characters, rarely allow any form of merchandising from their creations. WOW!
