Good morning from a beautiful spring morning in Hastings.
Well New Zealand is still celebrating today after winning the Rugby World Cup yesterday morning. Life is good for this rugby mad country. But, to be honest I am relieved it is all over. This last week has been rather tense. It got to the stage that I refused to watch the news, or read online newspapers. Everything was about a parrots predictions, about hoodoos, jinxes and bad luck etc to wind everyone up even further. It is only a game.
Last week Nancy with her A Photo a Week Challenge has asked us for our pretty in pink photos. Well, where do I start. I have lots of pink flowers starting with these snapdragons. I know the colour is more of a cerise than a real pink. Actually now that I have been painting I am becoming more aware of colour tones. I have done some portraits (which I will post later on) and thought I have got the perfect shade for the shadows. Yet when it got a bit darker in the late afternoon that colour turned to a nasty shade of green. So next day I couldn’t wait to paint over it.
But these roses are a beautiful pink shade.
One day I headed out for a walk even though it was drizzling. But a great day for some macro photography which I showed last Saturday. Anyway there is a fence that is just covered in these gorgeous roses. The smell is divine. It was so hard to stop taking more photos.
Such a delicate pink colour. And I think everyone can tell that roses are my favourite flowers.
Thanks for visiting.
