TT – Flowers

This weeks Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen, isn’t so much the subject matter – flowers…I love photographing flowers as many of you have seen before. It’s actually the point at which I venture out of the warmth of inside the house…of a Winter dreary day, and look around the garden, not to find too much to photograph. The hint of the final lavender amongst the rosemary, and the tiniest rose buds screaming from the leafless branches of rose bushes. Sometimes the simplest of things, and the dull of light can give us something truly beautiful.   I’ve been wanting to take photographs of this bottle for ages…I just love it. I’m a tonic water drinker, and just adored this limited edition collection that Schweppes Australia distributed. The series is a collection of 1920’s – 1950’s pin up girls.See the full collection in the inspiration room. I’ve had these photo images in my mind for ages…and it was truly magical inspiration to see these photos come alive. original photo twistedvines + kkchase +light/shadow adjustments. original photo …

12 Days of Textures

How exciting is this! Another couple of days, actually 12 days of new textures, and a lot more learning and creating with Kim Klassen. Today’s texture KK’lilly’ is lightly dabbled with music notes…I used this image also in a post here, and wanted to create something new with it…I loved the black and white image, and the subtle glow point hinting of the vibrant orange persimmons. The harshness of the freezing snow creates for me a ‘wonder in awe’ emotion…natures way of preserving goodness. Have a great day, Yvette…x

TT – Icy Pink

Today is a chilly and cold day in this Southern Hemisphere climate. Not as cold as those Winter snowy Northern ones, but never the less it has been cold. A freezing whispering wind that makes your cheeks cold and red. Today’s photo is one of those that makes me think of beauty and all it’s simplicity. A beautiful fragile image of a rose covered by icy snow. A survivor of harsh Winter chills. It would have to be one of my favourite photo’s and every time I look at it. I’m mesmerized by it’s beauty. I’m joining in Kim Klassens Texture Tuesday – The Pretty in Pink eDition joining herself and many other inspiring photographers who love images and textures.
