Week 26 – 6. Backlit


We were given this Amaryllis at Christmas and it flowered beautifully in the sick room. Gave us all a splash of colour and joy. Could not resist this shot with the light behind it complete with cobweb.

Week 24 – 46. The Colour Purple


Could not resist this for the clue. The colours are so “in your face” and garish even to the orange light. I loved it. Just so untasteful I could not believe I had composed it!

Sums up the roller coaster ride we have had with emotions, events, my language at times, the sheer horror of it all yet we have come through it stronger and wiser and closer as a family. Life is strange at times!


Week 11 – 4. Aged/Ageing


Two shots at the theme. The ageing leaves with their beautiful autumn colour and the rusting wall behind. These were taken at our local IKEA store.

I took some  images of the leaves on the way into the store but on the way out the light was much better and really brought out the colour.

I am particularly partial to the wall/fence behind them. Each visit I take photographs as it rusts beautifully. i am a sucker for rust and this wall is a joy to photograph.


Week 19 – 10. Dawn’s Light

Nearly caught up. This is taken in the current week but was not planned! Serendipity!

At this time of year it is easy for me to make images of early morning light. I am not a morning person usually. When I looked out of our bedroom window on Tuesday, there was a lovely dawn with grey clouds and pink light. Grabbed my camera and made a few shots before it went.
