Chihuly with a hint of Christmas! (Friday Flowers)

These flowers were outside in the gardens of the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition in Seattle. It was the end of the day, the sun was setting and people were not wanting to stop whilst I took my happy snaps.

Consequently I wasn’t particularly happy with any of my photos. That was until I transferred one to my phone. Oh the joy of photo editing apps… they breathe new life into anything!

 

 

 

 

 

Oh to break the glass flower ceiling (Friday Flowers)

It may not have happened at the end of last year as many of us had hoped and dreamed, but it will happen… eventually.

That glass ceiling will be broken by women and equality will finally rain down upon females everywhere… eventually!

Flashy Fake Flowers (Friday Flowers)

For something different this month, rather than editing photos of my fresh flowers, I’m going to be using flowers from the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition we visited in Seattle at the beginning of the year.

Chihuly’s glass is magnificent without editing. However, in this instance I couldn’t help myself by upping both the contrast and color just a smidge!🤣

A Sign of the Setting Sun (Monochrome Monday)

Walking up Pike Street for an early dinner before our short flight from Seattle to Vancouver, the setting sun behind the market’s sign caught my eye.

Although shooting into the sun is never advised, in this instance I simply couldn’t resist and am so glad I did.

Tulip Time (iPhriday Flower)

When we visited Pike Place Market in Seattle over the weekend it unfortunately wasn’t until quite late Sunday afternoon. Many of the stalls were either packing up or already packed up.

The stall selling these beautiful tulips however was still open for business with hundreds of tulips still incredibly available. I say incredibly as there was always at least one person buying a bunch or two, with another person waiting!

 

 

 

 

 

Bloke Full of Wind (Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge #29)

After seeing the LONG line-up outside the original Starbucks in Seattle, we found a nearby cafe to sit and catch our breath but we weren’t alone. This bloke kept looking at us…

Bob the BlowUp

He was the most intricate piece of balloon construction I’d ever seen. Unfortunately when it was time for us to move on, the lines from Starbucks had moved to this cafe meaning we didn’t have an opportunity to ask the origin of this bloke.

Whatever the reason for his existence though, I’m mighty glad we had a chance to have a coffee with him!
