When I think of rainbow colours, I think of flowers – so here are a selection of my favourite flower photos from my blog! A veritable spectrum of wonderful hues 🙂
Posted for the Weekly Photo Challenge: ROY G. BIV
A yellow field in Margeret River (Western Australia) made a wonderful, eye-catching sight!
Kings Park (Western Australia) has a wildflower festival every year and I love it. I went with my youngest brother and father this year and caught everything at the height of spring. I tried so many times to get a shot like this but the bees were all rather inconsiderate and flew away – this one shot made it all worthwhile!
One little duck in France was having a wonderful swim in this golden pond – we don’t really get an autumnal leaf-change here in Australia so the novelty of the bright orange leaves along with the sheer simplicity of the image sparked my aesthetic senses!
These flowers at Mundaring Weir (Western Australia) were so pretty I had to take a photo – in fact I had to take several! This one was originally so faded in term of colour that I took the liberty of editing what were pink flowers into orange ones.
Well, it’s a Paris photo again! There’s a little garden just behind Notre Dame Cathedral that we were lucky enough to see in full bloom – turns out such warm colours lend themselves well to photographs!
I find there is nothing more appealing to me than a pretty shop display, and this one on a street in Paris ticked all my aesthetic boxes! The flowers smelled wonderful too. These little sightings have fostered in me a travel philosophy: sometimes you should skip the tour bus in favour of a leisurely stroll.
I’m a real sucker for a pretty flower; here in Australia you don’t see many so when I do, I take so many photos I don’t know where to display them…OH WAIT, I HAVE THIS BLOG! HUZZAH. The Kings Park wildflower festival is a must see if ever you’re in town September-time!
King’s Park – the perfect place to find an interesting nature shot!
Another picture of pink flowers? HOW ORIGINAL I AM. This shot is another from Mundaring Weir (Western Australia) and although it’s a bit fuzzy, my love for these colours outweighs my worry about pixelation.
Way back when, my back-yard had this native tree that produced astoundingly purple blooms – I just found this photo I took in said yesteryear on my computer. I often get these nice surprises when I go through the huge number of old files on my expansion drive; Australia occasionally has some colours in the landscape other than orange and blue! 😛
WILDFLOWER WEDNESDAYS: Another snap from the Kings Park wildflower festival – a little more eclectic choice of flowers this time! I adore the blue ones – so vibrant! I wore a ball dress that was the same colour a few years back and it made me feel a bit like a pretty flower 🙂
You know when you step into one of those places that feels strangely detached from the outside world? This little market in Paris felt like that; an odd avenue of greens and quirky things – my Dad, standing in the middle there, liked it very much and I think places like this are what makes this place his sort of spiritual home 🙂
