Autumn! – Friday Fun: Warm

For this weeks Friday Fun we have been asked:

warm conjures up many things …
sunny days, rugged up against the cold, warm heart

please share your pics or stories to warm our hearts

Last weekend – it looks warm, but only just.  You can I think detect the last of the summer in this photo, and the colder days to come.  A day out to explore new places and bring warmth to the soul though, and mostly dry 🙂

Magenta Roses – Weekly Prompts: Magenta Rose

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

At the start of 2019, GC and I introduced a monthly colour challenge that launches on the first Saturday of each month, and continues thoughout the month. The colour for September is Magenta Rose.

I don’t know about you, but I never realised there were so many different names for pink, and I’m not even sure how many photos I can find for the shade of Magenta Rose, but that’s the challenge, and the hunt is part of the fun!

Bit of a cheat as they did start of as very dark burgundy roses, but I did want to use roses, and fuchsias were well fuchsia, pinks where pink… Not quite the shade of ‘Magenta rose’, but certainly now Magenta roses!

I can almost smell it – #SundayStills: #Close-up

This week Teri  challenged us with:

Calling all photographers and creatives who really like a challenge this week! Last July 2018, I challenged Sunday Stillers to a macro-photography challenge. I thought it was time to offer another macro or close-up photography challenge this week.

Not quite as close as I sometimes get, but I just liked this the way it was.

The smell of garlic – Sunday Stills: #Paths

This week in Teri is back, and  has challenged us with:

This week’s Sunday Stills theme is “paths.”

Well I have a fair few photos of paths and trails, and was looking through my archives and noticed this one.  The smell of garlic was almost tangible in the air as I looked at it!
