I truly adore all colors. I have my favorite, red. But the colors of the rainbow inspire me. All the shades, mutations, and the brightness cheer me.
But for this challenge I wanted to share my love of the color white. White is such a pure, clean color. When seen against a sharp contrast of black or another primary color it can be breathtaking. Here are a few!
I’m loving Cee’s challenge this week of Red, White, or Red & White. My favorite color is red so this is just my thing!
I’m sharing flowers with you today. Two of my favorites – gardenias and roses.
The first is a gardenia from the bush outside my office window after a rain shower.
The second photo is of a rose called “Silver Lining”. It has a beautiful white silver underside to the petals.
Another post for the Where’s My Backpack Travel Theme Challenges. This one is almost so easy that it is difficult! The challenge is flowers. I love flowers and have a ton of photos of them. So I wanted to try for a specific type of flower and show it in different stages and settings. I picked gardenias – they have become one of my favorites due to a large bush of them just outside my home office window. They smell wonderful and their colors are so simple and pure.
This challenge I wanted to share a photo that I enjoyed utilizing the image manipulation softwares on my iPad. This is a blooming gardenia melded with some red in the color scheme with the black & white.
I’ve contributed three photos to the Static Instants May Monthly Competitive Series! Go check them out and then June 1 go vote for them – #s4,5, & 6!
Here they are just so you can recognize them!
The first gardenia of the spring!
In this first photo the welcome bell not only has contrast in black and white but it was attached to the door of an empty house.
In the second photo I love the contrast with the white against the dark green. And the shine of the raindrop paired with the shimmer in the leaves.
Since I like the topic of this week’s challenge I am participating again. The topic is “simple”. It just happens I have a portfolio photo named Question Of Simplicity so it seems apt to share it for the challenge this week. I hope you enjoy!
Since it is a photo in my portfolio you can also order it from RedBubble, FineArt America, and my Facebook page shopping tab. Of course, you can also contact me if you would like to order it. It does appear in my portfolio book on Blurb.
In my last post I had a request for more gardenias but in bloom. So here you go! Enjoy!
Outside at the front of our house is one of my favorite bushes- a gardenia bush. The smell when it blooms is heavenly! Enjoy!
Photos with those neat, little bugs, butterflies, and spiders! Several of these have been published in my photo books on Blurb – in Details and Nature’s HD.
