Tulip – Weekly Prompts: Flamboyant Red

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

December’s highlighted color challenge on Susan and my site is FLAMBOYANT RED.

Well there is not actually that much Red to choose from in my archives, mainly flowers like the one below.

When I was a young boy Red used to be my favourite colour, it is hard to say what it is now, but probably Blue, but it does sway either side on the colour wheel to Purple and Green.

Why and when did my colour tastes change I wonder?  I actually remember hating Blue, I would never pick the blue pieces in a game!  However just like my multicoloured clothes wearing wife, I would have to say my wardrobe looks like a rainbow, a muted rainbow, but all colours are represented.

A single Tulip – Weekly Photo Challenge : Simplicity

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks:

This week our challenge is to photograph the simplicity of a scene which may mean making choices on what to leave out.

I love taking photos of flowers shooting slightly into the light and using a clear sky as a backdrop, though it is sometimes hard to isolate just one bloom.

And in Monochrome for perhaps an even simpler image, I cannot decide which I like best.

Reflective skull – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Shiny

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee gives us the topic of ‘Shiny’.

Well there were a lot of photos that I could have used for this challenge, however I had already used most for other challenges, and I always like to use something new if possible, although I do sometimes forget what I have used before.

Anyway a previously unedited photo, taken for no apparent reason and therefore unedited, and it is metal and shiny!

So what previous challenge entrants would I have used?  Two come from something I  posted only yesterday, both my bass Tallulah and our new table are shiny, other thoughts were a toy Caterpillar, a shiny red tulip and a rose hip.

Shepherd’s Tulip – Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge – RED

This week GC and SueW pose us the following Challenge:

Welcome to February, the most romantic month of the year and the Photo Challenge RED!

Cast your minds back to the start of January and some of you may remember GC announcing our new monthly photo challenge, “At the start of each month a colour challenge will be offered to you.”

This month our colour is RED. Well, what else would it be?

So here are two interpretations from my archives.
