MY PALETTE...

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_THINGS_THEME AAAHH, the smell of linseed oil and terpentine! A BIG fave Fragrances are extremely important in my life. I've painted for as long as I can remember. I believe if you are a creative it is NEVER just in one field... I photographed one of my paintings, 60x50, and inserted it; I was so surprised when it actually matched the colours on my palette! Some of the brushes I used belonged to my grandfather and father. The painting is actually done completely with palet-knife, my fave tool. I painted with oils, watercolours but I made hundreds of soft pastels. I don't paint anymore now; I might again, one day, who knows? I believe you have to be in a specific ‘state of mind’, plus, I must admit that over the years Photography has satisfied my creative needs more and more. I’ll upload the above painting sometime for those who’d like to see it. I painted it from memory, a tour of Bretagne. I had been most impressed with the rough rocky coasts, the often emerald waters, the ‘wildness’ of the place. The photo was taken solely with ambient light.

THE MASK...

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ NO, not VENICE... Part of a series CRAVING COLOUR. INTENSE colour photos. Had been doing a lot of b&w in the studio. In the days of film! My eyes craved some colour... Enough? This is done on the technical camera/ Horseman.4x5 Lens: Rodenstock 180 Film: Polaroid pro 4x5 YES, sigh, gathered a lot of props over the years.

THE PSYCHEDELIC NEST… A HAPPY EASTER

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_SPRING_THEME The nest feathered and full, the feathers soft, the eggs cosy, the straw warm, the basket protecting... Another of my 'creative' images, while I had everything out... I always experience that one idea brings on another and then I am feverishly working away, time flies and nothing goes fast enough... my actions can't follow my brain lol, it's not easy being a 'creative', nor to live with one... day crosses into night, I forget to eat or drink, I'm in my own world.

We ALL have them, we ALL need them... anti static, natural or artificial fibres... Dust on the screen, dust on the scanner, dust on the keyboard, dust on the camera, dust on the lens and OOOOOOPS.... dust on the sensor... A series of ‘loose’ subjects. It can be anything, just seeing different scenes that attracted my attention.

THE FOUR FEATHER DUSTERS...

I bought these four, all in striking colours, they are very decorative (when I have no fresh flowers I put those in a vase!). Can't get over the fact that they are each quite different, individuals, I wonder if it has to do with the paint? I love the deep rich tones and all the intricate detail, hope you do too.

FAN-tabulous?? PLUMES

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ FAN-tabulous?? PLUMES l'Éventail MAGIQUE. Hot pink feathers, arranged as a fan. So softly tactile. Do you think they ere plucked off a pink chicken? LOLOLOL Have great time and thanx for everything, M, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com Please do not use any of my images on websites, blogs or any other media without my explicit permission. © All rights reserved

FAN-DANGO?

FAN-DANGO, a bit of a wordplay... Paper fan, Paper fun. Fandango, as a result of the extravagant features of the dance, the word fandango is used as a synonym for 'a quarrel', 'a big fuss' or 'a brilliant exploit. www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFOcR-8M45s Another prop of Summer, these things bring back memories from deep within... your childhood... How can I resist, such superb colours, another photo begging to be taken. Paper fans Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me.

LOVE OVERFLOWING …

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ These flower petals are like all the reasons why I love you, I hold them in my heart... to cherish, so beautiful. And often too many, overflowing= butterflies! Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

THE WONDROUS WORLD of THE PINK OYSTER MUSHROOMS...

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ FOUND/ BOUGHT them on the Farmers' market. The Oyster mushroom, or Pleurotus ostreatus, both the Latin and common name refer to the shape of the fruiting body. I love the detail in the gills! Many also believe that the name is fitting due to the flavour resemblance to oysters. The pink colour will fade on cooking. In fact, cooked oyster mushrooms all look the same, regardless of the colour they started as. These beautiful Oyster Mushrooms seem more like fast growing coral than easy to grow delicately flavoured treats.. Why not take a few minutes, CLICK on the link and WATCH, sit back and relax, enjoy the beauty, you'll feel replenished? FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD I wish you all the very best and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.

Lost Love...

My AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ LA JAPONAISE... EMOTION IN PHOTOGRAPHY Another of a studio session with 'materials' I've collected over the years. It's an ongoing process that you are witnessing, the creative struggles of a photographer... This kimono is a Yukata, a Japanese summer garment. Unlike a formal kimono, Yukata are typically made of cotton rather than silk and they are unlined. The colours and patterns often follow the seasons. MADAMA BUTTERFLY? Love can be so fleeting... A white chrysanthemum symbolises truth and loyal love. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me.

Some days I need colour!!! And today is again one of them. When it is wet and grey outside... How can I resist, such superb colours, another photo begging to be taken. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me. I am spending a lot of time in the studio again at the moment. A photographer friend asked an interesting question, why do YOU take photographs? One answer for me is I love the challenge, and it still and always is! Lately, I've made it even more challenging, not only because it's on black, which gives off 'negative' reflection, also here it is with lighting, reflective objects and making it all work together the way I want it, with maximum texture, and still be surprised, ALWAYS thrilled.

More colour to brighten your the dark days! We all live in a world where at some point, colour will be a part of, and affect us in our every day lives.

I COULD BAKE YOU A SWEET RAINBOW in THESE???

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ LOL! Trendy cupcake moulds in paper! Yes they are so very much the 'flavour' of the moment! A cupcake (also British English: fairy cake; Australian English: patty cake or cup cake) is a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper or aluminium cup. The first mention of the cupcake can be traced as far back as 1796, when a recipe notation of "a cake to be baked in small cups" was written in American Cookery by Amelia Simms. Cupcakes have become more than a trend over the years; they've become an industry and in the last two years or so, cupcakes really exploded!!! Birthday's, Wedding cakes, you name it... cupcakes! The 21st century cupcake variations are endless. They range from simple to sublime. Baking papers come in designer prints. Here they went for colours, which I loved! could, once again, not resist!

SSSSSOOOO SSSSLINKY…

COLOUR is THE SPICE of MY LIFE! I made this photo with this giant slinky. Another eye-teaser, I really had a lot of fun with it, always the child at heart... thankfully. I love all the vibrant colours in this funky and temperamental 'model', it is 'alive', misbehaved a lot and got entangled quite a few times, ooh give me children and animals any day, tee hee! Mind your eyes, don't jiggle this about... you have been warned! LOL.

ALWAYS QUESTIONS???

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ As far as I can remember, there was a question mark at the end of my sentence! That's how I gathered a load of knowledge, never been afraid to ask a question, so the subject of this image a very useful tool all through my life! Always hungry for the how and why. Yet, I, luckily, do not suffer from morbid curiosity about other people. I am a good listener, they can tell me things, I'm interested, but I will rarely ask personal questions. I don't consider this indifference, I call it respect. Think before you ask... there are questions... and: ...you HAVE to be able to live with the answer! If and when I want to photograph someone or something, I ask, if the answer is yes, I am happy, if it is no, I respect it, at least I ASKED! There are these four ways of answering questions. Which four? 1. There are questions that should be answered categorically [straightforwardly yes, no, this, that]. 2. There are questions that should be answered with an analytical (qualified) answer [defining or redefining the terms]. 3. There are questions that should be answered with a counter-question. 4. There are questions that should be put aside. These are the four ways of answering questions.

THE WINDMILLS OF YOUR MIND, LES MOULINS DE MON COEUR...

Composed and performed by one of my favourite musical Artists: Michel Legrand. Theme of the first movie: The Thomas Crown Affair, with Steve Mc Queen.

WHY KNOT??? TO ART or NOT TO ART????

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ I am spending a lot of time in the studio at the moment. A photographer friend asked an interesting question, why do 'YOU' take photographs? One answer for me is I love the challenge, and it still is! Now it is with lighting, reflective objects and making it all work together the way I want it, and still be surprised, ALWAYS thrilled. A Nylon skipping rope, a prop for a Summer poster, I knotted it like when I was a little girl, then I saw THE image... I photographed it in my own style... Called this first one WHY KNOT??? Uploaded it and it did very well.

Some people will say what does a mess of different coloured string all placed together and tied into a knot mean? How is that art? Others will say ah, what an excellent metaphor/s that applies to so many themes. What a simple minimalist piece of art. Why didn't I think of that? It's been right in front of me a million times.

The playing with light, to me, the ultimate high, I don't need anything else. Once the image is there, I'm content, and if it 'inspires' others, releases an emotion, that's wonderful!

WHY KNOT??? TO ART or NOT TO ART????

For an image 'representing' Summer, one of the props was a very colourful skipping-rope (jump-rope). The moment I saw this out of all the other stuff, my creative juices started to flow...I photographed it in my own style... Called this first one WHY KNOT??? Uploaded it and it did very well. Then I got an interesting comment that I want to share with you: "In a way this photo is everything that is WRONG with upload-sites. And, everything that's RIGHT.

MORE ON COLOUR... FUN FLOWER WHEELS FOR ICE-CREAM FANS...

MY IMAGES, ONLY FOR SALE DIRECTLY FROM ME! Light and colour can influence how people perceive the area around them. Different light sources affect how the colours of walls and other objects are seen. Specific hues of colours seen under natural sunlight may vary when seen under the light from an incandescent (tungsten) light-bulb: lighter colours may appear to be more orange or "brownish" and darker colours may appear even darker. Light and the colour of an object can affect how one perceives its positioning. If light or shadow, or the colour of the object, masks an object's true contour (outline of a figure) it can appear to be shaped differently than it really is. Objects under a uniform light-source will promote better impression of three-dimensional shape. The colour of an object may affect whether or not it seems to be in motion. In particular, the trajectories of objects under a light source whose intensity varies with space are more difficult to determine than identical objects under a uniform light source. Carl Jung is most prominently associated with the pioneering stages of colour psychology. Jung was most interested in colours’ properties and meanings, as well as in Art’s potential as a tool for psychotherapy. Colour has long been used to create feelings of cosiness or spaciousness. However, how people are affected by different colour-stimuli varies from person to person. There is evidence that colour preference may depend on ambient temperature. People who are cold prefer warm colors like red and yellow while people who are hot prefer cool colours like blue and green. A few studies have shown that cultural background has a strong influence on colour preference. These studies have shown that people from the same region regardless of race will have the same colour preferences. I'm ALWAYS fascinated by COLOUR!

A BIG FAN of RED...

L'ÉVENTAIL ROUGE... I became a lover of red later in life. I took a course on colours years ago, very interesting, a real eye-opener... all very logical! HOW THE COLOR RED AFFECTS US PHYSICALLY: It increases enthusiasm. It stimulates energy and can increase the blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat, and pulse rate. It encourages action and confidence It provides a sense of protection from fears and anxiety. Red stands for Happiness, Celebration and Ceremony! Red is the color most commonly associated with joy and well being. It is the color of celebration and ceremony. A red carpet is often used to welcome distinguished guests. Red is also traditional color of seats in opera houses and theaters. Scarlet academic gowns are worn at by new Doctors of Philosophy at degree ceremonies at Oxford University and other schools. In China, it is considered the color of good fortune and prosperity, and it is the color traditionally worn by brides. In Christian countries, it is the color traditionally worn at Christmas by Santa Claus, because in the 4th century the historic Saint Nicholas was the Greek Christian Bishop of Myra, in modern-day Turkey, and bishops then dressed in red Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me.

I COULD BAKE YOU A SWEET RAINBOW in THESE???

SOME FRIDAY FUN. LOL! Trendy cupcake moulds in paper! Yes they are so very much the 'flavour' of the moment! A cupcake (also British English: fairy cake; Australian English: patty cake or cup cake) is a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper or aluminium cup. The first mention of the cupcake can be traced as far back as 1796, when a recipe notation of "a cake to be baked in small cups" was written in American Cookery by Amelia Simms. Cupcakes have become more than a trend over the years; they've become an industry and in the last two years or so, cupcakes really exploded!!! Birthday's, Wedding cakes, you name it... cupcakes! The 21st century cupcake variations are endless. They range from simple to sublime. Baking papers come in designer prints. Here they went for colours, which I loved! could, once again, not resist!

GUILTY LITTLE PLEASURES... MACARONS

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_THINGS_THEME We ALL need them, he? MMMMMMM, irresistible... euhhh to be photographed... and then (of course) savoured... Macaron is a sweet meringue-based confectionary made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond and food colouring. The French macaron is commonly filled with ganache, buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. Its name is derived from the Italian word maccarone or maccherone.

PATH to LOVE…

…can take a lot of ‘meandering’… it is a happy way, with surprises, fun and joy. For Valentine, everything is wrapped with shiny red ribbon. Red, the colour of passion, red the colour most commonly associated with love, followed at a great distance by pink. It the symbolic colour of the heart and the red rose, is closely associated with romantic love or courtly love and Saint Valentine's Day. Red is the colour of celebration and ceremony. A red carpet is often used to welcome distinguished guests. Red, by a large margin, is the colour most commonly associated with seduction, sexuality, eroticism and immorality, possibly because of its close connection with passion and with danger. Another, more ‘graphic’ minimalism image, which I adore! I declare February LOVE, romance and beauty month.

LOVE for CHRISTMAS…

from when I was a little girl, I have always loved red ribbon. Often it is easier to pin down why you do not like something. I was wondering why this photo was so appealing to me. Started to analyse… so, the red ribbon, and then, the little bauble separated itself from the rest as all fell on the black velvet, I SAW it! THE photo!!! LOVE, this month people will gather and give. I have a feeling that December can be an ‘emotional’ month, where we ponder over the past year… So now I know why I like it. Happiness all around!

CHRISTMAS SPARKLE…

I mentioned I was a 'classicist' for Christmas. I prefer the colours green, red, white... with some gold or silver. I looked up why Red? An early use of red at Christmas were the apples on the paradise tree. They represented the fall of Adam in the plays. Red is also the colour of Holly and many other berries, which is said to represent the blood of Jesus when he died on the cross. Red is also the colour of Bishops robes. These would have been worn by St. Nicholas and then also became Santa's uniform? AAAHHH well, there you go. I just find it festive! Hope you this warms up your day.

A LEAF OUT OF MY LIFE...

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ I like the analogy, we are here for our one “4 seasons”, to bud, unfurl and grow, in sunshine and rain, in wind and storm, holding on. In light, in darkness, brightness and fog, from fresh green to mature to colourful, missing bits, some scars, by far not “perfect”, ever more interesting and beautiful though, until we gently float down and come to a final rest… No, to me this is not negative, it is realistic, the way it is.

OF HALLOWEEN CROSSES and COLOURS… Physalis

We come to the finale of the fruit and nut harvesting! Large papery husks derive from the calyx. The berry inside, also goes by the names Golden Strawberry,Chinese Lantern and Cape gooseberry. Not all Physalis species bear edible fruit. This here is decorative. Any sort of religious symbol might deter a vampire… Have you ever wondered about the origin of Halloween colours? It is the custom of the celebration to use orange and black in decorations and costumes. The colour orange also signifies strength and endurance. We don’t know if that is for the holiday or strength and endurance at the harvest time. Since the Celtics were involved in wars with Julius Caesar, they may have believed orange gave courage to those who wore that colour during battle. As the Celtics are given the most credit for beginning the holiday as the festival of the harvest, a colour of autumn is used. Orange, being the most prevalent autumn tone, is derived from the pumpkin and leaves. In the final confrontation with Dracula, Van Helsing, finding himself in a showdown without any weapons, grabs two nearby candelabras and holds them up in the shape of a cross, which repels the Count. This scene created a visual trope since adopted by many other cinematic slayers: since then, we have seen characters use whatever is at hand from baseball bats and even two of their own fingers—to form an impromptu cross.

APRICOT, THE COLOURS of AUTUMN?...

This one was really showing all the gorgeous colours, over yellow and orange... with the warmth of still, the warmth of SUMMER? Fresh apricots are loose-stoned fruit that range in colour from pale green to yellow to flushed orangey pink. When ripe, their flesh is sweet, soft and juicy. The apricot was known in Armenia during ancient times, and has been cultivated there for so long that it is often thought to have originated there. Its scientific name Prunus armeniaca (Armenian plum) derives from that assumption. MORE THAN EVER: Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

MAPLECOPTERS…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ It was September, the month of melancholy, another Summer almost over, Autumn already in the air but not yet visible in nature... Is it going to be a long Winter... With the lovely long evenings? One night we had some gusty winds, earlier this year, a bit thundery, so in our garden, on the grass were hundreds of those, blown off their home, the maple tree... No seed in there yet, they were fresh, so no flying... we'd have to wait for full Autumn. The innocent fun you could have with those twirly thingies, throwing them up, running after them (kept us fit!), guarding and treasuring your 'best' ones! Speak of childhood memories!!! The distinctive fruit are called samaras, "maple keys", "helicopters", "whirlybirds" or "polynoses". I call them ‘MAPLECOPTERS’! These seeds occur in distinctive pairs each containing one seed enclosed in a "nutlet" attached to a flattened wing of fibrous, papery tissue. They are shaped to spin as they fall and to carry the seeds a considerable distance on the wind. People often call them "helicopters" due to the way that they spin as they fall. During World War II, the US Army developed a special air drop supply carrier that could carry up to 65 pounds of supplies and was based on the Maple seed. Seed maturation is usually in a few weeks to six months after flowering, with seed dispersal shortly after maturity. However, one tree can release hundreds of thousands of seeds at a time. Depending on the species, the seeds can be small and green to orange and big with thicker seed pods. The yellow seeds are released individually and almost always without the stems. Some seeds can remain dormant in the soil for several years before germinating.

WINTER FRAGRANCES…

So welcome in December, the fragrance of orange, cinnamon and Star anise, then add some pine from the tree, maybe some candle-wax and all set? LOL Star anise is a star-shaped, dark brown pod that contains a pea-size seed in each of its eight segments. Native to China and Vietnam, star anise comes from a small evergreen tree. Its flavour is slightly more bitter than that of regular anise seed. Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamomum that is used in both sweet and savoury foods. Cinnamon has been known from remote antiquity. It was imported to Egypt as early as 2000 BC. Cinnamon was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs and even for a god: a fine inscription records the gift of cinnamon and cassia to the temple of Apollo at Miletus. Though its source was kept mysterious in the Mediterranean world for centuries by the middlemen, who handled the spice trade, to protect their monopoly as suppliers, cinnamon is native to Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Malabar Coast of India, and Burma. The "sweet orange", which is the kind that are most often eaten today, grew first in Asia but now grows in many parts of the world. Oranges are round orange-coloured fruit that grow on a tree which can reach 10 metres (33 ft) high. Orange trees have dark green shiny leaves and small white flowers with five petals. The flowers smell very sweet which attracts many bees. An orange has a tough shiny orange skin. Inside, the fruit is divided into "segments", which have thin tough skins that hold together many little sections with juice inside. There are usually ten segments in an orange, but sometimes there are more. The colour orange takes its name from the fruit. The word "orange" is unusual because it is one of only a few English words that does not rhyme with anything.

FLOWERS for FRIDAY! Ranunculus.

Why, on your way home, not buy a bouquet of flowers for your partner? Start the w-e off beautifully and with love? LOL Ranunculus, a whole bouquet, all different! I love Ranunculus, the multi-layered blooms opened beautifully, not always evident, their stems are extremely delicate and do tend to just collapse before the bud can open into a gorgeous voluptuous bloom... I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen! Layered, sweet coloured beauties in every stage from bud to full bloom. The green one was a new one for me, never seen them before... I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen! Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them! With love to you and thanx for the good wishes, M, (* _ *) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

OIL AND VINEGAR…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ I saw how many round objects there are in our home, so, now that we are back on Winter time, it is dark very early, the weather's gone bad, I've had plenty of time to think and be creative in the studio once more. Glass is one of the most difficult substances to photograph; my challenge is to use the reflections in a positive manner so that they add to the image. I love using different oils and vinegars in the kitchen, so over the years these glass beauties have now become part of a collection, the first was the 'ball' one in front! I wish you all a sweet day and thanx for your visit, always welcome, Magda, (*_*) Please do not use any of my images on websites, blogs or any other media without my explicit permission. © All rights reserved For more of my other work or if you want to purchase, visit here:www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

All ON THE GO…

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_SPRING_THEME KINGS CROSS STATION LONDON... Springs mean travel/holiday for many, not only the birds that trek South, lol. Sitting on a low wall, waiting on Sunday noon, King’s Cross Station in London, it was stifling hot. Instead of being bored and impatient, I decided to pass the time being 'creative'... I noticed all the people hurrying by and also, especially, that EVERYBODY was lugging bags, lots of bags, of all types, colours and designs. Spotted, striped, floral,classic, coloured. I wondered, what were they all transporting? Can we not go anywhere without our ‘wheeled’ carriers? Often not one but more, backpacks, plastic, leather, designed, handbags, so many. All different, just like the people, their shoes, legs and leg wear! I saw people traveling alone, in pairs, in group, I saw them smile, I saw them laugh, I saw some cry, I saw some depressed and some tired, people of all walks of life. I saw hellos and I saw good-byes... all the emotions ... I became smilingly fascinated and eventually left feeling a great sense of joy because of this series. I feel so biased, I like them ALL, LOL, thanx, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to purchase, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

NO RAIN TODAY...

DAY 5 the weather is everything all would wish for, each day, blue sky and burning sun. We wander into a shop and I spot these colourful, forlorn-looking umbrellas. It hasn't rained for days/weeks?

LE TEMPS des GERBERAS…

DAY 8 There is an unbelievable choice in everything, it all seems too much? Such abundance. I remember when sellers came to market with their wares, towards the end, if you were late… there was little left, certainly no choice anymore. Now everything seems overstocked and never-ending FULL.

COLOURED TEARS... for a HAPPY MONDAY

My AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ At some point, we had a studio that used to be a ballet school, a great space. At the back were two mighty heavy sliding doors, that opened onto a small back-garden, in the middle of the city, luxury. They were behind our backgrounds, so, often in Summer, it could get extremely hot with all the lights and creativity (LOL), we soon found out that letting in some fresh or cooler air via the doors was not an option, as it was probably the fave 'haunt' of all the cats (=flies) from the neighbourhood. One day it was just too much, so I rushed out and I bought one of those 'anti fly' curtains, we hung it up... AND this is what I saw... Coloured teardrops in the sunlight. Enjoy a colourful day and thanx for visiting, Magda (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

SPANISH FISHING NETWORK...

Wherever we go in the world, it is especially the sea that attracts us most. We're always drawn to the harbour, not to admire the big luxury yachts, no, the fishing harbour, the working boats, the people, the different methods they use. The netting depends obviously on the type of catch they fish for. The majority of rigged nets are made to order, allowing fishermen to have exactly the right net for their needs. Here, in England and the North, the size of the mesh is often bigger than what we saw here in Spain. I fell in love with this scene when I saw it! The colours, aahh, everything! Of course I took a whole selection, this is only one of them… thanx for all your words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.

BONDS...

AB FAV 2 for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ Series: METAPHOR OF LIFE, of knots and ropes and hooks. I wrote this blog about it: http://magdaindigo.blogspot.co.uk/2009_04_01_archive.html So, back from the Continent, we reinforced the bonds with family ... with old friends and new friends... Yes, the feeling good! And this image of some mended nets on board of a boat in the harbour in Ostend/ Flanders is the perfect illustration of how I feel and what I mean.

THE NET...

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ saw this on New-Year's day in Fuerteventura. View On Black Passing an overcrowded shop with everything displayed outside, I saw this blue net sticking out above the rest. For butterflies or little fish? Or both? LOL... I wanted to photograph it against the sky so had to go down, and bend and crouch and kneel to get the angle I wanted. People apparently were staring in disbelief, but when Iím composing an image, I forget about everything else! My challenge was to photograph blue on blue, I love to use the light to bring out the gossamer forms. It sings of sun and fun and wind and freedom and holiday, that small net high up catching the sun and the wind and the light and my eyeÖ one of my personal favourites from the trip.

RAN OUT OF RED PAINT???

FROM THE URBAN SERIES: Dublin/ Temple Bar. Next to 'The Wall of Fame', was this building, I liked the symmetry, also the 'creative colours' in which it was painted... it just cracked me up when I saw that, at some point... they must have run out of red paint... and that seemed like some time ago... still waiting for the order of the same paint colour?

A PIKEMAN…

DAY 7 I couldn't help myself, I just HAD to take some portraits of these characters! Only veteran members of the HAC who have had proven efficient service in the HAC’s Territorial Army regiment are eligible to join the Company of Pikemen & Musketeers. All join in the lowest rank, regardless of any previous military rank held. Members must be fit enough to competently complete the march of the Lord Mayor’s Show. Military medals and insignia are permitted to be worn. The seniority of officers and non-commissioned officers is signified by the amount of lace worn on collars and cuffs; the more lace the more senior the rank. Members are unpaid but give freely of their own time for drill practice and rehearsals as well as the parades and guards themselves. All make a significant contribution towards the cost of their own uniform and are expected to clean and look after their armour, muskets and other kit to maintain the highest standards of turnout for the many prestigious occasions they parade for.

WITH PANACHE…

DAY 7 The musketeers wear their plumed black felt hats with great panache! Waiting, while the royalty enters the arena, lol, they stand holding the pikes. The latter would originally have been 18 feet long but for reasons of practicality 12-foot pikes are used today.

THE MUSKETEER…

DAY 7 A little series of The Company of Pikemen & Musketeers parading in Brugge, an occasion attended by the sister of the Belgian king, in honour of their 360th anniversary. Musketeers wear a buff sur-coat and wide-brimmed felt hat. They are armed with a match-lock musket and wear a leather cross belt, from which are suspended 12 wooden powder flasks known as apostles. A musketeer (French: mousquetaire) was a type of soldier equipped with a musket. Musketeers were an important part of early modern armies, particularly in Europe and the west, as they normally comprised the majority of their infantry. The musketeer was a precursor to the rifleman’s. The iconic "Redcoat" of the British Empire was the staple unit in the British armies that created the largest empire in history. The British infantryman was well trained by the standards of the time, training with live ammunition. A fully trained redcoat could fire four times a minute.

LAST CHRISTMAS…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ our breakfast on that special morning, Christmas Day, when all is silent in our neighbourhood… It is just the two of us. Again, we have no family coming over as we are celebrating in the warmth of our own home. Families are dispersed nowadays, ooohhh I know some "envy" us and wished their family did not descend on them? LOL. I think it is human nature to want what you cannot have and not want what you have? I can tell you that it is bittersweet, the longing in your heart can hurt and telephone becomes a sad substitute for hugs and kisses. But, hey, let's rejoice and look forward to the future, some people have far less, I will try and sprinkle a bit of joy during those days. Tell me if you are lonely? May ALL your wishes come true! This year the table decorations are completely different, haven’t photographed it yet!
