PhotoHunter: “Pink”

I posted one of these plus the link to the original photos on an earlier blog post but I just like them too damn much. I am going to include them for this week’s PhotoHunter Challenge.

    Unfortunately I never saw this film “Bread and Roses” is it an old one ?

      “Bread and Tulips” (Did I write roses?… probably did. Silly me!)

      Bread and Tulips was filmed in 2000. You must see it. Bruno Ganz and Licia Maglietta are the lead actors.

        Yep, just checked and I DID write “Roses” instead of “Tulips”. What a maroon…

    I remember the columbines (right? the columbines?) – these are all so striking!

    So, how’ve you been? 🙂

      Well, life has its moments…

      “Ain’t died a winter, yet…” to quote a line from a favorite movie (“Why Shoot the Teacher”).

    I love the freckles on the foxglove and absolutely adore the columbine… any color… love that columbine. My pinks are up here.

      The Foxgloves are always beautiful but this year they only seemed to have one colour this year. In other years they have had a variety of colours.

    That columbine is fabulous! It looks unreal.

      There must be something with my camera that the shots aren’t so sharp when my camera it held normally but are incredibly sharp when the camera is lying flat. I am wondering if a lens is a little loose and it falls back where it should be when it it lying flat… I was stunned how sharp the images were!

    So many shades of pink! Nice.
    I, too, like the contrast between the flowers and sky.

    Absolutely gorgeous shots!

    They are beauties. I love the name my mum has for them. “Fairy thimbles” (although it sounds like timbles with her broad Irish accent!)

    I agree with Randi! Just love the blue sky – beautiful contrasts to the pink flower.

    Beautiful shots!
    Have a great weekend 🙂

    Super photos! Love the blue sky – perfect contrast to the pink colour.
    A great take on the theme.

      Used to be a tv show about these people who travel to an alternate “Earth” where they are tiny and everything around them is huge. Was it “Land or Giants”? or something?

      • felicia said,

        Ah, land of the giants…the one typ of Sci-Fi that makes me uneasy, being too small for the world around you…so tiny and helpless. I would email Deborah at Calming collars about your mom’s cat…one of the herbal collars may help!
