Ever Changing – Three very different photographs and types of photography.  I adore all three.

Third Person Travel – Tumeric is a fabulous color.  Stunning photo of a  Sadhu or Holy Man.

Hamburg und Mee(h)r – I adore those floral photography in these photos.  Each photo provokes a different mood.

Reflections and Nightmares – Irene A Waters – Such a great yellow collection of fun and beauty.

A New Life Wandering – The first photo is brilliant simplicity in this photo.  Great selection of yellow in this post.  Definitely my kind of photography.

The Nature of Things – Birds, butterflies and flowers are all beautifully captured in this post.

My Aberdeen Garden – More dazzling yellow flowers to tantalize your senses.

Raspberry’s Daydreams – Doesn’t the brilliant mustard yellow just make that omelette look tasty.

My Entry for the Week

I don’t do a lot of pastels.  It just is not my own personal preferred style.  So here are a few photos that I have taken.

  1. I love what you did with the tulips. If you’re looking for ideas to blog about, I’d love to see how you did it. Yes, I want to try it for myself!

    1. I will think about it. Mostly I just took the exposure to the lighter side. Then darkened the highlights and whites so they weren’t burned out. There was more but that was main parts. 🙂

  2. All very different photos. I actually think the first one is my favourite which is odd since it has nothing to do with gardening. It is just such a romantic image with the antique suitcase and the parasol. Where did you take it?
    I think I have peaked too early and am also having difficulty finding pastel photos. I clearly prefer bright flowers, but I can find a few I think.

  3. Great pastel photographs, Cee! I love the first two. And those claws! 🙂 I too don’t click pastels much — looks like this is a tough challenge for at least some of us 🙂 — but I’m sure I’ll find something if I dig deep enough…
