SPRING MUSING…

this trio of small bulb/Spring flowers made me contemplate the joys of the awakening of my garden… Mini Daffodil, mini Iris and a red Anemone.

A WHIFF of SPRING...

The lights and glittering bling all stored away again. The room sounded ‘empty’ and hollow. The days are mostly dreary, so, I need something uplifting. What better than bringing the brightness and fragrance of Spring flowers home? These are all grown from bulbs. Blue Hyacinths and dwarf Daffodils... The fragrance is heady, the sight pure visual pleasure, good for one's senses... I prefer taking 'uplifting' images...life is tough enough, there is more than plenty of 'darkness' and 'Angst'... I am not 'hiding' from reality, only refuse to ONLY live with 'that', I want to show there IS still 'ANOTHER', beautiful, side to it... for those who care to look? Hope this brings a bit of joy again, have a good day and thanx for your visit, so very much appreciated, Magda, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

COLOURS of SWEDEN…

Swedish, English, French, Belgian, Syrian etc… Ultimately we are ALL people with the same aspirations in life, a bit of love/friendship, a bit of comfort, a few luxuries not amiss. And then you have the terrorists, those without a conscience? Sadly part of our daily life now, a part I will NEVER understand. In memory of all those fallen through terror. Flowers in the colours of Sweden, because they became the latest victim… THANK you, M, (*_*) SUPPORT the PHOTOGRAPHER: BUY DIRECT!

TRI-COLORE… POPPY

#abfav_3 Iceland Poppies, I love them, these are from my garden. The petals are quite sheer, and very tender, indeed like butterfly wings. Their colours so vibrant, raindrops clinging on, yes, they were thrashed about by strong winds, a little damaged. The colourful poppy, with tissue-paper petals on thin hairy, wiry stems Cultivars come in shades of yellow, orange, salmon, rose, pink, cream and white as well as bi-coloured varieties. Papaver nudicaule, the Iceland poppy also called Arctic poppy, is a boreal flowering plant. Native to sub-polar regions of Europe, Asia and North America, and the mountains of Central Asia, (but not in Iceland)… HERE IN COMBINATION with a vibrant blue budding cornflower or Centaurea.

Life can show no mercy It can tear your soul apart It can make you feel like you\'ve gone crazy but you're not Things have seemed to change There\'s one thing that\'s still the same In my heart you have remained And we can fly fly fly away \'Cause you are not alone And I am there with you And we\'ll get lost together Until the light comes pouring through It\'s when you feel like you\'re done And the darkness has won Babe, you\'re not lost...

SYNERGY two… IRIS and Tulips

Found those 'frazzled' tulips, new to me those 'frayed’ edges, new varieties all the time? And then there was this dazzling Iris! I loved the combination, frazzle dazzle razzle razzmatazz... all those words kept swirling through my head while I was again experimenting for a good comp and lighting. A synergy is where different entities cooperate advantageously for a final outcome. These were definitely a MATCH! Two Spring flowers, the Blue (Dutch Iris) and pink fringed Tulips.

MEMORIES...

of Spring... I love looking back over this past year, discovering images first discarded? This is one of them, Hyacinths and candy-pink tulips. An apotheose, fragrant and fresh, a promise. Yes, in the warmth of the studio, I can enjoy this. One of the many different compositions and combinations I tried, thanx, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY!), VIEW THE NEW PORTFOLIOS AND LATEST NEWS: magdaindigo.co.uk IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

SPRING SONATA...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! A true blue not so common in the flower world and not easy to photograph well... The beginning of some 'mixed'? We always have a smaller studio in our home, in between things there is time for some of my favourite photography, playing with lights... Went to the 'end of the market' for a cheap deal on flowers (my props), 6 bunches for £ 2, chose from whatever is left. I was fortunate, blue Irises, blue Hyacinths, pink Tulips, Tiger Lilies, what a delight, they perfume our whole house! One of the many different compositions and combinations I tried. HERE MIXED WITH SMALL DAINTY PINK TULIPS The name hyacinth comes from the Greek Hyakinthos, a handsome young man who in Greek mythology was loved by the sun god Apollo. One day they were practising throwing the discus but the jealous god of the West Wind, who was also in love with Hyakinthos, blew the discus back and it fatally wounded him. From his blood grew a flower which the god Apollo named after him. The bulbs were first brought to Western Europe in the 16th century and were first cultivated in Austria in the 1500's. During the 17th and 18th centuries, like the tulip, it was to be found only in the collections of very rich flower collectors. Because of the hyacinth's pervasive perfume (used in perfumerie in France), the bulbs were exorbitantly expensive. Their heady fragrance, their delicacy and their inimitable spring feeling make them very desirable.

ODE TO JOY CHORUS... BEETHOVEN, Symphony No. 9

ODE TO JOY CHORUS... BEETHOVEN, Symphony No. 9 MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 9, ODE TO JOY, Ode an Die Freude For the music lovers, listen here The words are sung during the final movement, they were taken from the "Ode to Joy", a poem written by Friedrich Schiller in 1785 and revised in 1803, with additions made by the composer. Today, it stands as one of the most played symphonies in the world. This was what these flowers triggered in me when I took this photo... Winter is stubborn here,now and then a few moments of Spring fragrance in the air... then it is gone again. But, the earth is moving, breaking the cold crust, green tips are showing, a few daring Snowdrops are out, some shrubs show tender green... yes, soon "Ode to Spring", like this image. Giving my flowers SOUL? My Soul Flowers on youtube I wish you all a very good day and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and likes. Very much appreciated.

INTERLACED...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! In the visual arts, interlace is a decorative element found in medieval art. In interlace, bands or portions of other motifs are looped, braided, and knotted in complex geometric patterns, often to fill a space. Interlacing is common in Islamic art and in the Migration period art of Northern Europe, especially in the Insular art of the British Isles and Norse art of the Early Middle Ages. Winter is stubborn here, not letting Spring in, they seem interlaced, in our garden, some of the snow that fell 1 1/2 weeks ago still lies unmelted... now and then a few moments of Spring fragrance in the air... then it is gone again. But, the earth is moving, breaking the cold crust, green tips are showing, a few daring Daffodils are out IN BUD... some shrubs show tender green... holding, waiting for more clement temps. These are Spring flowers from bulbs, Yellow pointed Tulips and Blue Hyacinths a difficult colour to photograph... INTERLACED! Giving my flowers SOUL?
