RAVISHING RIBES…

(best LARGE ) More from the garden, a beautiful deep rich colour... only just starting to bloom on this bud. Ribes sanguineum (Ornamental Currant), when young in Spring, they have a strong resinous scent. The flowers are produced in early spring at the same time as the leaves emerge. The ornamental types are mainly grown for their flowers, which form colourful hanging panicles, but some varieties also have attractive foliage.

DIVIDED WE STAND… GINGER

The red ginger flower represents intense passion. These flowers symbolise strength, prosperity as well as diversity. The general flower meaning for ginger flowers is proud and majestic. These flowers are sometimes used as substitute for roses. Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a flowering plant whose rhizome (root), ginger root or simply ginger, is widely used as a spice or a folk medicine.History Ginger, along with black pepper, were considered highly valuable trade commodities in 13th and 14nth century England. One pound of ginger traded for the same amount as a sheep. The country of India brought ginger to the Romans as far back as 2,000 years ago. The Romans used the plant for its medicinal value. Lead and enjoy a good life and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

Poems in the genre are sometimes also called bucolics. Virgilius wrote the Bucolica, consisting of 10 Eclogues). As a flower symbol it has come to mean "Dramatic", which seems most fitting here! Hippeastrum is a popular bulb flower for indoor growing, it is Greek for "horseman's star" (also known today as "knight's star").

UNFURLING HYPPEASTRUM…

What we all know as amaryllis, with its tall stems and trumpet flowers at their very best right now, is in fact a hyppeastrum. The name comes from the Greek hyppeus – knight – and astron – star – after the resemblance of the flower to the knight’s star, a medieval weapon also known as the morning star. Hyppeastrum come from Central and South America and are members of the amaryllis family, which also includes snowdrops, snowflakes (leucojum) and daffodils from the northern hemisphere, and clivia and nerines from South Africa – as well as the one amaryllis that grows reliably well in gardens, the belladonna lily. To have them flower at Christmas, you would need to have planted them in October.

BEE ATRACTIVE… AMARYLLIS

These did survive the treck from Belgium very well, probably love the heat? HAHA, they had them, here we have to wait till December? These flowers are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis, a monotypic African genus in the same family.... This image of the Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) has very prominent attractions, for bees, The name Hippeastrum, given to it by William Herbert, means "Knight's-star-lily", although precisely what Herbert meant by the name is not certain. For many years there was confusion among botanists over the generic names Amaryllis and Hippeastrum, one result of which is that the common name "amaryllis" is mainly used for cultivars of this genus, often sold as indoor flowering bulbs particularly at Christmas in the northern hemisphere. By contrast the generic name Amaryllis applies to bulbs from South Africa, usually grown outdoors. The genus is native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas from Argentina north to Mexico and the Caribbean.

DARK FLAMENCO

“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.” Georgia O'Keeffe quote (American Painter, 1887-1986) These are Hippeastrum, which is a genus of about 70–75 species and 600+ hybrids and cultivars of bulbous plants in the family Amaryllidaceae, native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas from Argentina north to Mexico and the Caribbean. Some species are grown for their large showy flowers. These plants are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis. Photographed in a ‘sensual’ way, they made me think of fiery flames, the ruched skirts of the Flamenco dancers; my excuse is that I’m a ‘romantic creative’… what’s yours? LOL. Have fun and thanx, M, (*_*)

FLAMENCO… Amaryllis

In fact they are Hippeastrum, which is a genus of about 70–75 species and 600+ hybrids and cultivars of bulbous plants in the family Amaryllidaceae, native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas from Argentina north to Mexico and the Caribbean. Some species are grown for their large showy flowers. These plants are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis. Paul came home and had bought me three beautiful Amaryllis stems, two red and one white. They were still closed, and that is the way you should buy them, so full of promise! This is not so unusual for him, and NO, it is NOT because I'll have to 'forgive' him for something!!! Where does this misconception come from, how did it start? I have always known men (agreed, on the Continent) who gave flowers to their loved one and vice versa. It is a wonderful, meaningful and loving gesture and can sometimes say more than words! It is not wrong or embarrassing to be 'romantic'... And yet when a man walks around with a bouquet, you see the look in the eyes of passers-by, it is such a sad cliché, and many ladies are the victim of it, their man would love to give them flowers, but they'll not be seen carrying them! LOL! Most flowers sold in the UK are bought by women. However, come Valentine's Day, the majority of flowers sold are overwhelmingly bought by men! Why is this? What is stopping men buying flowers the rest of the year? I know I'm a lucky woman! I don't want them on the 14th of February, that's commercial obligation, it doesn't make me feel 'special'. Out of the blue, that is what matters and does it for me! Studies show that flowers actually have a positive effect on human beings! Some surveys show that women have very positive feelings towards men carrying flowers, considering him a thoughtful, romantic and loving kind of guy, and are often jealous of the man's partner for receiving such a lovely gift - it could boost your rating in the popularity stakes to be seen with a bunch of flowers! So come on...gents... Photographed in a ‘sensual’ way, they made me think of fiery flames, the ruched skirts of the Flamenco dancers; my excuse is that I'm a ‘romantic creative’… Tee hee.

THE SECRET LIFE of PLANTS, Amaryllis

For December I upload images to do with the festive season. This is going to be many different things as you can see... It has become a tradition to have them in our home for Christmas. Hippeastrum, these plants are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis and are cultivars of bulbous plants in the family Amaryllidacea. The botanic name Amaryllis is taken from a shepherdess in Virgil's pastoral "Eclogues"(An eclogue is a poem in a classical style on a pastoral subject. Poems in the genre are sometimes also called bucolics. Virgilius wrote the Bucolica, consisting of 10 Eclogues). As a flower symbol it has come to mean "Dramatic", which seems most fitting here! Hippeastrum is a popular bulb flower for indoor growing, it is Greek for "horseman's star" (also known today as "knight's star"). Another Macro+++, and the 'dramatic' light I've grown to love so much. I did the series for this purpose... To have the flower head giving away its little secrets and beauty, slowly… and here it is, in the ALL RED flower petals a tiny lick of white on one of them, quite hidden... I love imperfection!!!

It is a labour of love for me to find 'different' lighting and angles to bring out their unique beauty, the petals so tightly concentrated in the heart and cascading out in full glory.

DARK BEAUTY... Peony

FLOWERS MY GRANDMA LOVED: PEONY… She especially love the more common ones from the garden, the dark red ones. Again, memories very much connected with the fragrance! The Peony is indigenous to China, but was imported to Japan so early it is difficult to be certain when the transplantation occurred. It is a perennial plant with single flowers of white, red or pink which are born in late spring. The peony was originally introduced as medicine. In fact, its ancient Japanese name "Ebisugusuri" literally means ‘medicine from China’. However, due to its beautiful and now mostly double blooms, in time, many decorative varieties were developed. In Japanese society, it was seen both as a medicine and a source of beauty. THANX for ALL your comments and visits, so appreciated. Have a wonderful day, filled with love and beauty, M, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com Please do not COPY or use any of my images on websites, blogs or any other media without my explicit permission. © All rights reserved

THE MEANING & SYMBOLISM OF PEONY

With a recorded history that dates back thousands of years, it’s not surprising that even the mythology surrounding the origin of the peony has multiple versions. One legend has it that the peony is named after Paeon, a physician to the gods, who received the flower on Mount Olympus from the mother of Apollo. And another tells the story of that same physician who was ‘saved’ from the fate of dying as other mortals by being turned into the flower we know today as the peony. The traditional floral symbol of China, the state flower of Indiana, and the 12th wedding anniversary flower, peonies are known as the flower of riches and honour. With their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage.

Fred? And, euh... GINGER....

Looking shy? Brought gingerly to you... meaning, like all my images: with great care or delicacy. TWO GINGER-FLOWERS. Symbols The red ginger flower represents intense passion. These flowers symbolize strength, prosperity as well as diversity. The general flower meaning for ginger flowers is proud and majestic. These flowers are sometimes used as substitute for roses. History Ginger, along with black pepper, were considered highly valuable trade commodities in 13th and 14nth century England. One pound of ginger traded for the same amount as a sheep. The country of India brought ginger to the Romans as far back as 2,000 years ago. The Romans used the plant for its medicinal value. The ginger family (Zingiberaceae) contains around 1,000 species of tropical perennial herbs. Some gingers are cultivated for their edible rhizomes, which are used for as both a medicine and a culinary spice. Other ginger plants, known as ornamental gingers, are grown primarily for their pleasing appearance. Leafy cane-like stems arise from rhizomes to form a plant 3 to 15 feet tall and 2 to 4 feet wide. Throughout the year, ginger plants produce stunning red blossoms that are often used in flower arrangements. When growing gingers, remember, they love moist, well-drained soil and partial shade. Ginger blooms come red, pink and white, have thick, very sturdy stems and are perfect to create height in a tropical arrangement. They have a decidedly modern feel. Giving my flowers SOUL?

BRAINY CELOSIA…

This is the top view of this unusual flower, to me it looks like a brain, the intricacies, different lobes. It was my full intention to photograph it like this from the moment I saw it. Difficult to control the light because of the glossy texture of the velvety flower. More play with light and dof. More from my garden. In the Victorian language of flowers, Celosias signified humour, warmth, and silliness. The cockscomb or cristata types feel and look like prickly but are soft and shiny as velvet.

RED MINI QUARTET... of CARNATIONS

4 small red carnations... And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche Some scholars believe that the name "carnation" comes from "coronation" or "corone" (flower garlands), as it was one of the flowers used in Greek ceremonial crowns. Carnations are often worn on special occasions, especially at weddings. At the turn of the century dandies would not leave the house without a white or red carnation in the buttonhole of their suit. With the end of this tradition and the fact that carnations are so easily cultivated and grown, the flower has lost some of its popularity. Although apparently in the UK it is still the most sold flower… However, carnations are not only beautiful and long lasting flowers, they also send a message. When you receive a red carnation bouquet, it means, "My heart aches for you" View On proper Black and when you receive white carnations the sender is saying: "I am still available." For the most part, carnations express love, fascination, and distinction. I love the drama here created by the red on black and lots of detail in those 'feathered' beauties... Giving my flowers SOUL?

A RED, RED ROSE, for my love…

"A Red, Red Rose" is a 1794 poem and song by the Scot, Robert Burns O my Luve's like a red, red rose That’s newly sprung in June; O my Luve's like the melodie That’s sweetly play'd in tune. As fair art thou, my bonnie lass, So deep in luve am I: And I will luve thee still, my dear, Till a’ the seas gang dry: Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear, And the rocks melt wi’ the sun: I will luve thee still, my dear, While the sands o’ life shall run. And fare thee weel, my only Luve And fare thee weel, a while! And I will come again, my Luve, Tho’ it were ten thousand mile. This is a Rose from the garden, no name, and it struggles. Maybe two blooms a year, and last Summer they were stolen, this year: ONE!!! A HEAVENLY fragrance of sweet ripe raspberries… I close my eyes and can smell them… THANX and take care, M, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

WOUNDED LOVE… ROSE This beautiful bud sadly already wounded by the elements. It looks like a painting to me, yet NO manipulation! "It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar-tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone." quote by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy A week of ROSES from our garden… vibrant, a rich unusual red, and they smell heavenly, the rich fragrance of Summer fruits!

THE TEARS OF THE ROSE...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below. In the east it is still believed that the first rose was created from a tear of the prophet Mohamed, and it is further believed that on a certain day in the year the rose has a heart of gold.’ It is wonderful that sites like these brings so many of us together, it has left me more hopeful for the future and the future of our children, but like everything in life and roses in particular, beware of the thorns… I'm optimistic, there is not as much hate as they’d like us to believe. The Rose is a flower of great Symbolism and importance in many cultures, mythologies and religions.I started growing roses because Paul told me how much he loved them; I never had them because I thought they were very high maintenance and ‘difficult’, how wrong I was! This is a 'FIRE and ICE' rose, in June the weather turned bad for a couple of days and a few roses were just at their peak perfect, so as it started to rain, quickly rushed out to photograph, my Nikon unharmed!

ONE POINSETTIA LEAF…

does not make Christmas… The French proverb ‘une hirondelle ne fait pas le Printemps’ is almost identical to its English equivalent "one swallow doesn't make a Summer" other than one glaring difference: the season. The coloured bracts, which are most often flaming red but can be orange, pale green, cream, pink, white, or marbled—are often mistaken for flower petals because of their groupings and colours, but are actually leaves. They are already available in the shops,I don’t know about you, by the time it is Christmas, mine will be gone? I’m no good with them… Poinsettia is a Euphorbia pulcherrima. The plant's association with Christmas began in 16th century Mexico, where legend tells of a young girl who was too poor to provide a gift for the celebration of Jesus' birthday. The tale goes that the child was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside and place them in front of the church altar. Crimson "blossoms" sprouted from the weeds and became beautiful poinsettias. From the 17th century, Franciscan friars in Mexico included the plants in their Christmas celebrations. The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to symbolise the Star of Bethlehem, and the red colour represents the blood sacrifice through the crucifixion of Jesus...Where I come from, we call this a 'Christmas Star' There is a common misconception that the poinsettia is highly toxic. This is not true; it is mildly irritating to the skin or stomach and may sometimes cause diarrhoea and vomiting if eaten. As with all Euphorbias, they bruise easily and give off a white 'milk' when broken, see the drop on the top, so those sensitive to latex may suffer an allergic reaction.

Me, I'm more traditional, green and red are THE colours for Christmas, of course with some silver and some gold, often white included, all depending on my creative mood... It probably originates in my childhood, but yes, to me, this is it! This Poinsettia is a Euphorbia pulcherrima. The plant's association with Christmas began in 16th century Mexico, where legend tells of a young girl who was too poor to provide a gift for the celebration of Jesus' birthday. The tale goes that the child was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside and place them in front of the church altar. Crimson "blossoms" sprouted from the weeds and became beautiful poinsettias. From the 17th century, Franciscan friars in Mexico included the plants in their Christmas celebrations. The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem, and the red colour represents the blood sacrifice through the crucifixion of Jesus... There is a common misconception that the poinsettia is highly toxic. This is not true; it is mildly irritating to the skin or stomach and may sometimes cause diarrhea and vomiting if eaten. As with all Euphorbias, they bruise easily and give off a white 'milk' when broken, so those sensitive to latex may suffer an allergic reaction. I wish you all the very best, and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments, invites, faves. Very much appreciated. M, (*_*) PLEASE READ THIS: MY PHOTOS ARE ONLY FOR SALE DIRECTLY FROM ME!

FADING BEAUTY, FAST FADING YEAR, TULIPS...

(best on black) My quote of this year: ‘BE HAPPY for what you have and NOT UNHAPPY for what you do NOT have!’ by magda indigo Alas... tulips, once cut, have a lifespan of about 7 days, if you are lucky and bought them VERY fresh, in closed buds! Often they retain their beauty till the end and then, oops, all the petals drop. These had stayed in the studio, where, for obvious reasons, it is never very warm, I came in, they had opened completely, showing off all the secrets of the inside flower, aach, how can I resist such beauty, even when fading... Twilight flowers? Mysterious and still passionate... they look unreal. The year 2016 is also fading rapidly now, its lifespan 365 days nearly exhausted. Some will be sad others will be glad... ... we take it as it comes if we want to get through life 'gracefully'? I am doing my utmost to focus on all the good in my life and Nature. I wish you all a very good week and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.

ELEGIE…

https://youtu.be/ElYS7lyJ3O4 A Tulip-octopus? They say I am an artist? Okay then, that would explain why I am a super-sensitive (sometimes OVER-sensitive, LOL), and often have high emotions? At the moment the main one is sorrow. It always reflects in my images, how can I make ‘HAPPY’ photos when I feel so sad? It doesn’t work. So this photo suits my mood, what I see in this ‘dried’ tulip, is what I feel in my head, like an octopus, all the ‘arms’ trying to find a grip, a connection, a hold-fast, to get some kind of understanding. My brain is not wired for this, it is in turmoil! Red, a hopeless searching. All my life I am one who needs to understand, researching, reading, listening, asking… if I don’t understand, I am not happy. Nobody has an answer today, I am stumped. A dried red tulip, reaching out… suits me perfectly right now! Enjoy and make the BEST of every day!

EMERGING FROM THE DARK..

For December I'm uploading images to do with the festive season. This is many different things...as you can see... "Every moment of light and dark is a miracle." Quote by Walt Whitman. These had stayed in the studio, where, for obvious reasons, it is never very warm, I came in, it was dark, only a glimpse of light in the yearly dark weeks, soon we will again be 'emerging' too... I could not resist capturing that 'air' of mystery... I wish you all the very best and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.

SENSUAL

There are no secrets... it only took me years of experimenting in the studio. As a beginner, you hit it with everything you've got or can possibly think of, you want to try it all (at the same time?), like most things in life, hihi, now it is less and less. With much better results! Just one spotlight set up in the position so that the light catches the edges and part of the flower... until I'm happy... a black bg.

La révérence… a Tulip

To me it looks like this tulip is taking a deep bow, in French, une révérence… A bow for gents, curtsy for the ladies, with a flourish?

A PARROT TULIP QUARTET...

Brought back these Parrot tulips from the Continent... they were very fresh, kept them in the cool and dark, they survived 6 days and our travels, enough for me to still be able to photograph them. They are so curvy and capricious and gorgeously unique... On a serious note: I get between 300 and 500 emails a day, many with requests about my lighting. I have no secrets really. Each flower shot is lit individually. There's no magic formula. I use continuous light, I'm not keen on flash, together with an array of reflectors, flags and cutters to shape the light. It took me over 20 years of work and experimentation to learn the language of light. I knew exactly what I wanted, I could see it with my minds eye, and I was determined my eyes were going to see it for real one day! If I may humbly offer some advice, like I give to pupils in a workshop? I am NOT one of those 'teachers' that want little ME's, no, the individuality of a person is too precious! Each photographer must pursue their own vision and develop a unique style and voice. You can only do that through constantly experimenting and trying things and then when you find a look that you like you have to pursue and refine it with a passion. I work over 10 hours a day on my photography. I wish you all of the best in your photographic endeavours. Giving my flowers SOUL?

THE SOLITUDE of the LONE TULIP…

A {PARROT} tulip of the season, I saw this one. It had a sense of loneliness. It looked somewhat lost, also pure, just organic shapes, to bring out what I love, the subtle and varied tones, that give the flower/petals/stems their texture, depth and form, their delectable shapes accentuated, extracted and emphasised the colour through light.

LUSCIOUS PETALS...

This is an 'organic' close-up of a variegated tulip, they are called Rococo Parrot tulips.

The Tulip was originally a wild flower growing in the Central Asia and was first cultivated by the Turks as early as 1,000 AD.
In the beginning of the 17th century the tulips were starting to be used as a garden decoration beside the former medicinal purposes. It soon gained major popularity as a trading product, especially in Holland.
The interest for the flower was huge and bulbs were sold for unbelievably high prices. Botanists soon found ways of making it an even more decorative and tempting specimen. Hybrids and mutations of the flower were seen as rarities and a sign of high status. In the months of late 1636 to early 1637 there was a complete “Tulip mania” in the Netherlands. Some examples could cost more than an Amsterdam house at this time. Even ordinary men took part in the business. They saw how much money the upper class got in trading and thought that this was an easy way of getting lots of money at no risk. The bulbs were usually sold by weight while they were still in the ground. The trade with the un-sprouted flower came to be called “wind trade”.
The traders made fabulous amounts of money every month, and people started to sell their businesses, family homes, farm animals, furnishings and dowries to participate. The government could not do anything to stop it, the trade was all about access and demand. But finally the tulip did not appear to be quite so rare to justify such high prices. Over-supply led to lower prices and dealers went bankrupt and many people lost their savings because of the trade. This “Tulip Crash” made the government introduce special trading restrictions for the flower. It is said that the flower became so popular because of the bright colours, dramatic flames and frilly petals. To have tulips in one’s home was a way to impress, and when the wealth spread down the social ladder, so did the urge for tulips.

THE MUSIC OF THE NIGHT... TULIP

Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation Darkness stirs and wakes imagination Silently the senses abandon their defences Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendour Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender Turn your face away from the garish light of day Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light And listen to the music of the night Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar And you live as you've never lived before Softly, deftly, music shall caress you Hear it, feel it secretly possess you Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind In this darkness that you know you cannot fight The darkness of the music of the night Let your mind start a journey to a strange new world Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before Let your soul take you where you long to be Only then can you belong to me...

MAMA MIA… Tulips

Double Tulips, speaking a silent language that I seem to understand. Wouldn't it be a lovely thought, if I had been a beautiful flower in a 'previous' life? As a youngster, a loner, being born in Bruges, West Flanders, I would often just walk into one of the many musea and churches (free in those days!), where you could admire all the great Flemish old Masters, I so loved their light!!! I was a sponge, absorbed it, stored it, till now? I do aim for it in my photography! SO,I adapted the lights and reflectors for the 'Flemish School of light' again, so suits these. It is full on the time of the DOUBLE TULIPS in the shop... at the moment, I feel they 'might' be my favourites! They are a bit capricious, Baroque, so varied in shapes, with small oddities, I have become fascinated by them, aahh, and the colours, from deep red, through textured orange to veined yellow to green, the leaves also perform. Oh, and that sweet honey fragrance... HMMMM, Love them. A FLOWER STUDY, THE BENEFICES of FLOWERS!

A FLOWER STUDY 1... THE DOUBLE TULIP

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! The Emotional Impact of Flowers Study was published in the April 2005 issue of Evolutionary Psychology. Home Ecology of Flowers StudyHarvard: Living with Flowers Strengthens Feelings of Compassion, and Decreases Anxiety and Worry. With people’s desire for tranquility and stress relief stronger than ever, fresh research takes an insightful look at flowers and the important role they may play in our daily lives. A behavioral research study conducted by Nancy Etcoff, Ph.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home.“Other research has proven that flowers make people happy when they receive them,” Etcoff says. “What we didn’t know is that spending a few days with flowers in the home can affect a wide variety of feelings.The Home Ecology of Flowers Study at Harvard uncovered three main findings: *Flowers feed compassion.Study participants who lived with fresh cut flowers for less than a week felt an increase in feelings of compassion and kindness for others. *Flowers chase away anxieties, worries and the blues at home.Overall, people in the study simply felt less negative after being around flowers at home for just a few days.Participants most frequently placed flowers in their kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms, where they spend a lot of time at home. They reported wanting to see the blooms first thing in the morning. *Living with flowers can provide a boost of energy, happiness and enthusiasm at work. Having flowers at home can have a positive carry-over impact on our mood at work, too. The study found that people were more likely to feel happier and have more enthusiasm and energy at work when flowers were in their home living environments. “As a psychologist, I’m particularly intrigued to find that people who live with flowers report fewer episodes of anxiety and depressed feelings,” Etcoff says. “Our results suggest that flowers have a positive impact on our well being.” AND AM I NOT LIVING PROOF OF THAT????????

FOR THE W-E, A DANCING TULIP…

Dancing with joy, it is the w-e again, and it promises to be a good one so they say. The Tulip was originally a wild flower growing in the Central Asia and was first cultivated by the Turks as early as 1,000 AD. In the beginning of the 17th century the tulips were starting to be used as a garden decoration beside the former medicinal purposes. It soon gained major popularity as a trading product, especially in Holland. The interest for the flower was huge and bulbs were sold for unbelievably high prices. Botanists soon found ways of making it an even more decorative and tempting specimen. Hybrids and mutations of the flower were seen as rarities and a sign of high status. In the months of late 1636 to early 1637 there was a complete ‘Tulip mania’ in the Netherlands. Some examples could cost more than an Amsterdam house at this time. Even ordinary men took part in the business. They saw how much money the upper class got in trading and thought that this was an easy way of getting lots of money at no risk. The bulbs were usually sold by weight while they were still in the ground. The trade with the un-sprouted flower came to be called ‘wind trade’. The traders made fabulous amounts of money every month, and people started to sell their businesses, family homes, farm animals, furnishings and dowries to participate. The government could not do anything to stop it, the trade was all about access and demand. But finally the tulip did not appear to be quite so rare to justify such high prices. Over-supply led to lower prices and dealers went bankrupt and many people lost their savings because of the trade. This ‘Tulip Crash’ made the government introduce special trading restrictions for the flower. It is said that the flower became so popular because of the bright colours, dramatic flames and frilly petals. To have tulips in one’s home was a way to impress, and when the wealth spread down the social ladder, so did the urge for tulips. Have FUN, I wish you all the very best and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments, likes and faves. Very much appreciated.

THE SEPARATION and CHILDREN IN THE MIDDLE!

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! Like every major life change, divorce can be a stressful experience. It affects finances, living arrangements, household jobs, schedules and more.

Children often feel they have to make a choice, what was once ONE 'safe-haven' suddenly becomes two alien places? Statistics show that many regret separation and say if the could, they would go back... No matter what, IT CAUSES A LOT OF PAIN for ALL parties, the wider families included.

I BELIEVE I CAN FLY… Tulip

February —> LOVE, romance and beauty month. called Rococo, Parrot Tulips. Now Coco is commonly called a parrot in fiction, especially comic books, but also in reality! On the Continent, England is more Polly???? Rococo or "Late Baroque", is an early to late French 18th-century artistic movement and style, affecting many aspects of the arts including painting, sculpture, architecture, interior design, decoration, literature, music, and theatre. It developed in the early 18th century in Paris, France as a reaction against the grandeur, symmetry, and strict regulations of the previous Baroque style, especially of the Palace of Versailles, until it was redone. Rococo artists and architects used a more jocular, florid, and graceful approach to the Baroque. I love Parrot Tulips, especially the red ones, the colourful frivolous buds can open into a gorgeous voluptuous blooms... Hope this brings a bit of joy again rather than Angst which I see in so many images and shares, have a good day and thanks for your visit, so very much appreciated, Magda, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to purchase, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

THE TULIP LOVE KNOT...

For December I'm uploading images to do with the festive season. This is many different things...as you can see... Of HEARTS AND STARS. Where there is love there is life - Mahatma Gandhi Modern western knotting literature has the name for these related knots deriving from stories or legends in which the knots symbolize the connection between a couple in love. Many examples feature sailors separated from their beloved. Ashley notes that it was once common for sailors' wedding rings, where gold wire was wrought to incorporate the "true lovers" knot such that resultant ring would comprise two tori: each flexible to move about the other; yet nevertheless inseparable! Each time I think... that's it, there's only so much you can do with flowers... and yet again and again, I'll see something new. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me.

RED VIBRANCY… ANTHURIUM

Anthurium can also be called "Flamingo Flower" or "Boy Flower", both referring to the structure of the spathe and spadix. Boy flower? Oops yes, I see why, lol. Anthuriums are a fun flower and never fail to provoke a smile. They look almost unreal! The flowers are thick, shiny, ribbed and wrinkled, while the leaves are large and glossy, which makes them so much more difficult to photograph well! They belong to the Araceae family, which also includes callas and philodendrons. Their genus name, Anthurium, comes from the Greek words anthos meaning "flower," and oura, meaning "tail."

STORY BEHIND THE POPPY…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ A sad symbolism of such a happy wild flower. The use of the poppy was inspired by the World War I poem "In Flanders Fields". Its opening lines refer to the many poppies that were the first flowers to grow in the churned-up earth of soldiers' graves in Flanders, a region of Europe that overlies a part of Belgium. The seeds can lie dormant for many years and will bloom when exposed to the elements. It is written from the point of view of the dead soldiers and, in the last verse, they call on the living to continue the conflict.T he poem was written by Canadian physician, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, on 3 May 1915 after witnessing the death of his friend, a fellow soldier, the day before. The poem was first published on 8 December 1915 in the London-based magazine Punch. In 1918, Moina Michael, who had taken leave from her professorship at the University of Georgia to be a volunteer worker for the American YWCA, was inspired by the poem and published a poem of her own called "We Shall Keep the Faith".[5] In tribute to McCrae's poem, she vowed to always wear a red remembrance poppy as a symbol of remembrance for those who fought and helped in the war. At a November 1918 YWCA Overseas War Secretaries' conference, she appeared with a silk poppy pinned to her coat and distributed 25 more to those attending. She then campaigned to have the poppy adopted as a national symbol of remembrance. At a conference in 1920, the National American Legion adopted it as their official symbol of remembrance. At this conference, Frenchwoman Anna E. Guérin was inspired to introduce the artificial poppies commonly used today. In 1921 she sent her poppy sellers to London, where they were adopted by Field Marshal Douglas Haig, a founder of the Royal British Legion. It was also adopted by veterans' groups in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. James Fox notes that all of the countries who adopted the remembrance poppy were the "victors" of World War I. Out of respect and gratitude, until the 11th of November,I will upload images, relevant to these historic events. We CAN NEVER FORGET! We owe them our present freedom!

CRINKLED and HAIRY… POPPY

Fresh out of the husk… Poppy is the common name given to the plant genus known by the scientific name of Papaver. The field poppy (Papaver rhoeas), like this here, has always been a symbol of death and rebirth, and no other flower combines exquisite delicacy of tissue with such a vibrant blaze of colour. Everywhere the ground is disturbed - be it by First World War shells or the plough - poppies will grow. Each flower will produce around 17,000 seeds, of which around 3,000 will remain viable and dormant in untilled ground for at least a century before bursting into flower when the ground is disturbed and the seeds are exposed to light. Poppies are flowering plants with delicate, papery petals in a variety of shapes and vibrant hues. There are more than 70 distinct species in the poppy (papaver) genus, including opium poppies (Papaver somniferum), corn poppies (Papaver rhoeas) and Oriental poppies (Papaver orientale). Poppies are an excellent addition to mixed beds, borders and cut arrangements. Thanx, M, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

A poppy is a flowering plant in the subfamily Papaveroideae of the family Papaveraceae. Poppies are herbaceous plants, often grown for their colorful flowers. Following the trench warfare which took place in the poppy fields of Flanders, during the 1st World War, poppies have become a symbol of remembrance of soldiers who have died during wartime.

YOU CAN KEEP YOUR HAT ON... Poppies

It looked like strip-tease? Pole dancers maybe? LOL Poppies are flowering plants with delicate, papery petals in a variety of shapes and vibrant hues. There are more than 70 distinct species in the poppy (papaver) genus, including opium poppies (Papaver somniferum), corn poppies (Papaver rhoeas) and Oriental poppies (Papaver orientale). Poppies are an excellent addition to mixed beds, borders and cut arrangements. Sepals... The outermost part of the poppy flower is the sepals. In the early stages of development, the sepals resemble two individual, yet partially joined, orbs which gradually lengthen and split lengthwise as the developing flower prepares to bloom. The foliage, stem and sepals are covered with thousands of fine hairs that protect the bud and plant from insect attack. The sepals, light green during early growth, turn to a pale shade of beige towards the end of their tenure. Once the flower is ready to bloom, the sepals detach from the stem and eventually fall away when the poppy flower slowly unfurls its matured petals.

Poppies are flowering plants with delicate, papery petals in a variety of shapes and vibrant hues. There are more than 70 distinct species in the poppy (papaver) genus, including opium poppies (Papaver somniferum), corn poppies (Papaver rhoeas) and Oriental poppies (Papaver orientale). Poppies are an excellent addition to mixed beds, borders and cut arrangements. Sepals The outermost part of the poppy flower is the sepals. In the early stages of development, the sepals resemble two individual, yet partially joined, orbs which gradually lengthen and split lengthwise as the developing flower prepares to bloom. The foliage, stem and sepals are covered with thousands of fine hairs that protect the bud and plant from insect attack. The sepals, light green during early growth, turn to a pale shade of beige towards the end of their tenure. Once the flower is ready to bloom, the sepals detach from the stem and eventually fall away when the poppy flower slowly unfurls its matured petals.

OPEN INVITATION... POPPY

Fully open, full of Pollen, probably 'spill' by visiting bees, who love to cover themselves in it! A poppy is a flowering plant in the subfamily Papaveroideae of the family Papaveraceae. Poppies are herbaceous plants, often grown for their colorful flowers. Following the trench warfare which took place in the poppy fields of Flanders, during the 1st World War, poppies have become a symbol of remembrance of soldiers who have died during wartime.

POPPIES…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ 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.

IN THE SHADOW OF THE POPPIES.REMEMBERANCE DAY... 11.11.2011 at 11 o'clock .

'In The Shadow of the Poppies'. © Copyright Magda Indigo Raised surrounded by the remnants of war. In the landscape, whether it be coastal or inland. In the people, whether it be story or silence. This delicate flower is part of my youth, Bright red. The child in me attracted, Picking it to offer or cherish, only to find it extremely ephemeral. The young woman I became, Lesson learnt, loved running in those colourful fields, Not enjoying the stains poppies left on a favourite dress. The young mother I became, Teaching her sons, Trying to protect them from the disappointment of the fast wilting flower, the stains, the symbolism... Now, I'm older and wiser, More tolerant and more intolerant. Now, I am back, they greet me, gently moving with the wind. I just stand; take in the beauty with a smile around my lips, And let the echoes of the past swirl behind my eyes. I grew up in Flanders in the shadow of the poppies, remembrance of the wars never far away. Everywhere you go, there are graveyards, English, American, Canadian, Polish, South-African, Australian... As a child, it is just part of the countryside, pretty, neat rows of stones and flowers. Then, the age of awareness comes, you want to know and understand. The adults'd rather not talk about it, their gaze becoming distant and full of sorrow and hidden, unspoken suffering.

ANOTHER POPPY on the FIELDS OF WAR.REMEMBERANCE DAY... 11.11.2011 at 11 o'clock

Last in this small series to honour those who fell, let's not forget? We received the sad news that a young friend was killed in Afghanistan. He wrote exactly the month before; in his own words... ...all the poppies are just getting harvested and all the flowers look quite pretty... ...Got to go for a walk later or a ‘patrol’ if you will, which is nice cos it means I get to hide in poppy fields, put them in my helmet, that type of thing, Great fun. The poppy harvest is just on so enemy activity will be low for the next couple of weeks. As not to disturb the crop… I'll NEVER understand 'war', I cannot get my head around it, I do understand the underlying quest for power, the hatred, the motives... the logistics, but not the emotions, if you know what I mean. I am always sad when I hear of lives being lost, but when you are close to it, as we were that day, it takes on another dimension... my heart goes out to his family. If there is to be peace in the world, there must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, there must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, there must be peace between neighbors. If there is to be peace between neighbors, there must be peace in the home. If there is to be peace in the home, there must be peace in the heart. By Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.)

LE COQUELICOT...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! HERE: A photographic 'anecdote' of the making and selling of one of my photos! Please view Large and in HD, only 7 minutes! Hope you enjoy this story, youtu.be/2iX5id0dSnY www.youtube.com/watch?v=3u1aOqA4KdM It's true that the flowers are very fleeting, lasting in a vase sometimes only for hours. They don't wilt, but the delicate petals begin to fall quickly. To avoid this, there is something you can do. As you cut the flowers, take only the freshest. Then use a large match or cigarette lighter, holding the cut end of the stem over the flame, and let it sear the end of the stem until it's almost black. This seals the milky juices into the stem, and usually at least doubles the life of the flower in water. Even with searing, your arrangement won't last long, and you may want to put a tray or large plate under the vase to receive the red petals as they fall, and stain! In Persian literature, red poppies, especially red corn poppy flowers, are considered the flower of love. Papaver rhoeas , common names include corn poppy, corn rose, field poppy, Flanders poppy, red poppy, red weed, coquelicot in French. It is a species of flowering plant in the poppy family, Papaveraceae.

IL PLEURE dans mon coeur...

R.I.P John Hurt https://youtu.be/8hLLL6gyUvg The seduction of Claude Debussy I created many an image with this music! Il Pleure dans mon Coeur poem by Verlaine Il pleure dans mon coeur Comme il pleut sur la ville. Quelle est cette langueur Qui pénêtre mon coeur? O bruit doux de la pluie Par terre et sur les toits! Pour un coeur qui s’ennuie, O le chant de la pluie! Il pleure sans raison Dans ce coeur qui s’écoeure. Quoi! nulle trahison Ce deuil est sans raison. C’est bien la pire peine De ne savoir pourquoi, Sans amour et sans haine, Mon coeur a tant de peine. It Rains in My Heart (English translation) It rains in my heart As it rains on the town, What languor so dark That it soaks to my heart? Oh sweet sound of the rain On the earth and the roofs! For the dull heart again, Oh the song of the rain! It rains for no reason In this heart that lacks heart. What? And no treason? It’s grief without reason. By far the worst pain, Without hatred, or love, Yet no way to explain Why my heart feels such pain!

IN THE RED... DAHLIA

Dahlia is a genus of bushy, tuberous, perennial plants native to Mexico, Central America, and Colombia. There are at least 36 species of dahlia. Dahlia hybrids are commonly grown as garden plants. The Aztecs gathered and cultivated the dahlia for food, ceremonies, as well as decorative purposes, and the long woody stem of one variety was used for small pipes. The dahlia is named after Swedish 18th-century botanist Anders Dahl. Giving my flowers SOUL? Here My Soul Flowers on youtube and here Studio Flowers 2011 THIS IS THE LATEST!!!

EL GRECO'S RED VELVET...

This beauty was taken just outside the little El Greco museum (that closes whenever they feel like it?) up the mountain outside Fodele, on the island of Crete.FOR THE GREAT EXPERIENCE: View On proper Black EL Greco, (1541-1614) Cretan-born painter, sculptor, and architect who settled in Spain and is regarded as the first great genius of the Spanish School. He was known as El Greco (the Greek), but his real name was Domenikos Theotocopoulos; and it was thus that he signed his paintings throughout his life, always in Greek characters, and sometimes followed by Kres (Cretan). Little is known of his youth, but he was born in Fodele. Only a few works survive by him in the Byzantine tradition of icon painting, notably the recently discovered Dormition of the Virgin (Church of the Koimesis tis Theotokou, Syros). In 1566 he is referred to in a Cretan document as a master painter; soon afterwards he went to Venice (Crete was then a Venetian possession), then in 1570 moved to Rome. The miniaturist Giulio Clovio, whom he met there, described him as a pupil of Titian, but of all the Venetian painters Tintoretto influenced him most, and Michelangelo's impact on his development was also important.

View and On proper Black Taken in beautiful Grassington. For those interested: Limestone hills and dry-stone walls in the west of the Yorkshire Dales. This part of the national park is popular with walkers due to the presence of the Yorkshire three peaks. In 1954 an area of 1,770 square kilometers (680 sq mi) was designated the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Most of the National Park is in North Yorkshire, though part lies within Cumbria. However, the whole park lies within the historic boundaries of Yorkshire, divided between the North Riding and the West Riding. The park is 50 miles (80 km) north east of Manchester; Leeds and Bradford lie to the south, while Kendal is to the west and Darlington to the east. The area has a large collection of activities for visitors. For example, many people come to the Dales for walking. The National Park is crossed by several long-distance routes including the Pennine Way, the Dales Way, the Coast to Coast Path and the latest national trail—the Pennine Bridleway.

WONDERFUL WORLD? CAN BE! HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

My son had found this seat amongst the red Begonias, his little boy ran towards him, picked up one of the fallen flowers and offered it to his dad, a very tender moment... Not something you can set-up! It is never easy being a parent! Each child is an individual... does not come with an instruction manual! LOL Have a great one dads. A lifelong commitment, that's being a parent, to care about smaller and bigger things, the being there, we have a duty, the morals that we teach them... that's what will (ideally?) shape them, let's not underestimate the impact we have on our nearest and dearest. The 'father' figure is often one of strength and discipline, never forget that bit of tenderness, so needed in all our lives. Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and more than ever, do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

Most of the passengers may not realise how reliant upon volunteers the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is. With the magnificent steam engines, beautiful rural stations and smartly uniformed staff, a visit to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is like taking a step back in time.From the smoke and steam pouring from the engines to the cosy wood-panelled carriages and friendly conductor service, the railway is both lovingly preserved and charmingly authentic. It’s also the perfect starting point for a day out, whether you’re travelling between the rugged Yorkshire villages, hiking on the wind swept moors or spending a day by the seaside in Whitby...

THE KIMONO... ASPECT OF WOMAN...

Another of the 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. The socks are tabi socks. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me.

MY TABI SOCKS... and THE FLOWER THAT TURNED INTO... PETALS

I passionately hate the idea of 'being with it', I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time. - Orson Welles I mostly wear Japanese tabi socks when I'm home, they are extremely comfortable and as I hate ANY slippers, they are much better than running around in stockings or socks. I love barefoot too... Anyway, as I was moving, holding up all the material, I looked down and thought mmmmmmmmmmmm, another shot, MUST try that? The 'struggle' of the photographer goes on!

HOT TOO HOT … RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS...

#abfav_2_together_theme Scotch Bonnet, also known as Boabs Bonnet, Scotty Bons, Bonney peppers or Caribbean red peppers are a variety of chilli pepper. Found mainly in the Caribbean islands, it is also in Guyana (where it is called Ball of Fire), the Maldives Islands and West Africa. It is named for its resemblance to a Tam o' Shanter hat. Most Scotch Bonnets have a heat rating of 100,000–350,000 Scoville Units, however there are completely sweet varieties of Scotch Bonnet grown on some of the Caribbean islands, called Cachucha peppers. For comparison, most jalapeño peppers have a heat rating of 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville scale. These peppers are used to flavour many different dishes and cuisines worldwide and are often used in hot sauces and condiments. The Scotch bonnet has a sweeter flavour and stouter shape, distinct from its habanero cousin with which it is often confused, and gives jerk dishes (pork/chicken) and other Caribbean dishes their unique flavour. Scotch bonnets are mostly used in West African, Grenadian, Trinidadian, Jamaican, Barbadian, Guyanese, Surinamese, Haitian and Cayman cuisine and pepper sauces, though they often show up in other Caribbean recipes. Fresh, ripe scotch bonnets change from green to colours ranging from yellow to scarlet red. Ripe peppers are prepared for cooking by those who cannot handle the sharp heat by cutting out the area around the seeds inside the fruit, which holds most of the heat. The seeds can be saved for cultivation or other culinary uses. (source Wikipedia) I wish you all the very best and thanks for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.

TOMATOES, COEUR de BOEUF...

Heart of a bovine... A beef tomato (popular English) is any of the largest varieties of cultivated tomatoes, some weighing 450 grams (0.99 lb) or more. Most are pink or red with numerous small seed compartments (locules) distributed throughout the fruit, sometimes displaying pronounced ribbing similar to ancient pre-Columbian tomato cultivars Very meaty and fleshy with mouth-watering texture and flavour, this unusually shaped variety is one of our favourites. Great for slicing and just superb used in Mediterranean type salads with mozzarella and olive oil. Yummy!

SHINY STRAWBERRIES...

The trend seems to be: DO NOT GET TO 98, or definitely NOT over, except some... OR IMMEDIATELY DISLIKED, see PREVIOUS!!! Happens each time, many experience it! Popular/Fine Art: NO 98!!! It's full on strawberry time here. The fragrantly sweet juiciness and deep red color of strawberries can brighten up both the taste and aesthetics of any meal; it is no wonder they are the most popular berry fruit in the world. Although strawberries have become increasingly available year-round, they are at the peak of their season from May through July when they are the most delicious and most abundant. While there are more than 600 varieties of strawberries that differ in flavor, size and texture, one can usually identify a strawberry by its red flesh that has yellow seeds piercing its surface and the small, regal, green leafy cap and stem that adorn its crown. In addition to strawberries that are cultivated, there are also varieties that grow wild. These are much smaller in size, but feature a more intense flavor. We have loads of the wild variety, in our garden which used to be woods. There's nothing like picking a handful and eating them, unwashed, why shouldn't we? Our garden is a natural garden! Why not take a few minutes, CLICK on the link and WATCH, sit back and relax, enjoy the beauty, you'll feel replenished?

THOSE MINIES… WILD STRAWBERRIES

The Wild strawberries from our garden, here to show you how small they really are! So get the sense of proportion. And these are some of the 'larger' ones. They are different from most fruits in that their seeds are produced on the outside of the fruit - this combined with their bright red colour has the unfortunate side-effect of making them very attractive to birds. I told you our garden was friendly for man and beast, hihi, now will we have to 'fight' over those little delicacies?

WILD STRAWBERRIES,

WILD STRAWBERRIES, from our garden. Wild strawberries are a common native plant found growing in open fields, woodlands and even our yards. In fact, some people consider the wild strawberry plant to be nothing more than a weed. Yet, it’s so much more than that. Smaller than store-bought strawberries, which are a hybrid of the wild strawberry and a European species, the berries are a favourite treat to many birds and animals, as well as people. Yes, contrary to what some may think, wild strawberries are not poisonous. In fact, the berries are edible and tasty.

READY TO EAT...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! In magazines and adverts, food photography is mostly 'trick' photography, afterwards the food is throw-away... With all the poverty and hunger in our world, that thought abhors me! Well not in THIS studio here. I thoroughly enjoyed them after the shoot! Blackberries and Raspberries. Anthocyanins are antioxidants found in blackberries that are responsible for giving blackberries their rich and dark colour. This concentrated pigment of blackberries is acknowledged with decreasing the rate at which the memory deteriorates.(Where am I again? LOL) Raspberry's nutritional value, they have an increased proportion of dietary fibre, which is among the highest known in whole foods, up to 20% fibre per total weight. They also contain anthocyanin pigments, an antioxidant, antiproliferative (chemopreventative) and are a low-glycemic index food, as are other berries.

World AIDS Day TODAY!

Was in Sweden, had rented a Stuga (wooden hut, well, small house), it was late October, during the days the weather was fine but the nights extremely cold. A roaring fire in the woodburner warmed up the place nicely, but it lacked a bit more 'coziness', so, with empty toilet rolls (a few cut in half), some alu-foil, red ribbon and some tealights, I made this groups of candles. According to UN-AIDS estimates, there are now 33.2 million people living with HIV, including 2.5 million children. During 2007 some 2.5 million people became newly infected with the virus. Around half of all people who become infected with HIV do so before they are 25 and are killed by AIDS before they are 35. Around 95% of people with HIV/AIDS live in developing nations. But HIV today is a threat to men, women and children on all continents around the world. Started on 1st December 1988, World AIDS Day is about increasing awareness, fighting prejudice and improving education. World AIDS Day is important in reminding people that HIV has not gone away! This image was donated to an Aids charity, because of all the symbolism it contains, within the candles, some burning brighter than the others, some dying down... They used it as a poster!

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.

THE BELL AND BOW... A CHRISTMAS THEME.

For December I upload images to do with the festive season. This is going to be many different things as you can see... THE BELL AND BOW, sounds like an old english pub! A small brass bell tied with a red bow. Bells are also very prominent in the festive season, for some reason. In Victorian times, it was very fashionable to go carol singing with small handbells to play the tune of the carol. Some times there would only be the bells and no singing!!! Handbell ringing is still popular today. A bell is a simple sound-making device. The bell is a percussion instrument and an idiophone. Its form is usually a hollow, cup-shaped object, which resonates upon being struck. The striking implement can be a tongue suspended within the bell, known as a clapper, a small, free sphere enclosed within the body of the bell or a separate mallet or hammer. Bells are usually made of cast metal, but small bells can also be made from ceramic or glass. Bells can be of all sizes: from tiny dress accessories to church bells weighing many tons. Historically, many bells were made to commemorate important events or people and have been associated with the concepts of peace and freedom. The study of bells is called campanology.

CIRCLES, FLOWERS and LIGHT...

I love objects that are 'different', like this red vase. The flowers are normally arranged in the opening at the top, but here I used it for the shape and colour and as a prop for the blooming cyclamen, set up with the dramatic light that I like so much. The flowers were obstreperous, but it turned out fine, love the one peeping from the right. View On proper Black Giving my flowers SOUL?

THE HEARTY THEME...

Yes, this year in our large kitchen, the theme is ALL HEARTS... lol. So, yes, another heart-given image. In many countries, it is quite traditional to have handmade and woven decorations in white and red, silver and gold... I have shoots where they give me things to photograph and never want it back, that means I can do my free photography when I have time, and after that, it goes to the charity shop. Sprinkle a bit of festive angle-dust around you, you'll feel great! Don't ever let the child in you die! I wish you all the very best, and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated. M, (*_*)

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.
