Something different

The Lens-Artists Challenge#171: Weird and Wonderful

I may have a few things that could be weird and wonderful. A slideshow may be best

The forgotten flower

Life in Colour October: Orange

I made comment on Jude’s post where she asked “Do you have any Orange Flowers?” I replied that I think I have posted all of my Orange Flowers. Then I wondered if I had an Orange Trumpet in a post.

So here is the Orange Trumpet Flower as promised Jude. This one grows over my potting shed.

oh yes I also forgot the Lions Tails. These ones come with a bonus orange bee

Get some perspective

Don’t Think I have delved into the #PerspectiveSquare yet, so why not.

Looking down the road from my front gate

I know, don’t play with matches

One to test your eyes

Discovering your emotions

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Emotion

Can you find your emotion among this lot? No responsibility taken for any mental scaring, they are your emotions. Perhaps I can facilitate some change. Try and stop for a while and appreciate the colours or patterns of the photo that builds a flight response or just stop on the photo that makes you go aahhh and soak up the emotion

I’ll come to your emotional rescue

I’ve burnt some orange squares

My ordinary life

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #169: Ordinary

My ordinary, commonplace or standard, of what I see most days. Included in this post is what is seasonal as well but as the seasons roll on it all becomes ordinary for me.

From my front door……

Something to listen to as you scroll through my ordinary world

Looking out of the kitchen window

Through the garden…….

Into the bush…..

or a place to relax in the garden to watch whats going on……..

Maybe watch a sunset

*Disclaimer: Not a sunset from my place. This is what sunset looks from my place

Your favourite #PinkSquares

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Past Squares
Cee’s FOTD

I though since it’s Floral Friday as well, I’d stick to my #PinkSquares as I am sure there will be at least one pink flower. I am trawling the stats to find some of your favourites.

There is always some likes and some comments and in 2018 there were a few for these posts -the top number for Comment was Pink#11 with thirty-nine comments For some strange reason, the original square image is missing???

Next was Pink#17 with 21 comments. A pink Frangipanni with a bonus Red Shield bug

And to round out the top three Pink#7 with 17 comments. It looks like the fungi had people talking

Now for the number of likes. Third was Pink#22 with twenty-seven likes. A dresser in my besties old house. That’s part of one of her paintings. That’s just how it was, no staging and I saw the scene from across the room and took the photo

Pink#18 received twenty-nine likes.and was second highest. A house on the island of Burano just a ferry ride from Venice.

And the most liked photo was the very last post Pink#31 This post received thirty-six likes and there has bee three recent views in September and October this year. Actually it was more than one photo. I love to grow Begonias. Therefore I just had to show your a few of the varieties I have; their leaves and flowers. I’ll do slideshow to make it easier.
