Texture Tuesday - The Pink eDition


This week at Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday the theme was pink. Funnily enough, pink so isn't my colour. I'm an Autumn in colours and I could never ever wear it. I have, sometimes as a teenager, and it looked awful, I still shudder to think about it. But as long as I don't have to wear it, pink can be pretty. In fact, where pink is definitely beautiful are flowers.


So the picture I chose is obviously a flower. And so that I don't have to resort to pictures from last summer, I worked on this recent shot of a Women's Day rose, which I textured with Kim Klassen's "Music Lovin'" and FrostBo's "Texture 54".

In other news, it might be officially Summer Time, but last night we had quite some snowfall and this morning when we first looked out of the windows we thought it looked more Christmasy than anything else. The branches were covered with fluffy snow, which they haven't been for a long time, and everything was fresh and white. Come to think of it, I wonder why one would associate white snow to Christmas at all. Is it all because we have all been well indoctrinated into dreaming of a white Christmas? For one thing, over here we have snow for at least five if not six months a year, and at Xmas time, there is always far less snow, days are short and dark and you rarely see even the faintest shimmer of sunshine. It is only when the days turn longer in spring that the sun makes all the snow glisten and glow.

Below a quick layout I made of a few photos I took this morning, from my windows.
