Color Your World : Magenta

Waiting for the Band

Lisstening to the Band

The magenta daisies and petunias listen to the music on a summer day.   This photo was taken at the bandstand in Cobh, Co Cork, on a sunny weekend last summer.   Apart from its famous Cathedral overlooking the town, Cobh is well known because it was the last port of call for the Titanic 100 years ago.

Playing Around with my Photos

In photography,  Aspect Ratio is something that I had vaguely heard of, never used much, (except maybe by accident when editing photos –  but I admired the look of it in other photographers’ work.    Now thanks to a great post by Luvo Photography – What is Aspect Ratio and How to Use it – I picked a few of my sunny September photos and played around with them – hope you like the result.

Travel Theme : Grasses

Grass is usually a shade of green, but sometimes in summer/autumn the colour can change as the grass dies and waits for the new growth in spring.

Here is a nice contrast to the two photos above, a well cared for edging showing green grass and daffodils

And of course golf courses often have the best grass, to help that little white ball run a long way!

While the grass on the roadside looks different again…

The African bush looks a little different, but still the grass grows there.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Lime or Bright Green

Well tended lawn in Dublin

The bright green lawn above looks inviting, along with the little covered bench, where you can sit and dream.   This photo was taken at the weekend at the Casino at Marino in Dublin, an Irish Heritage site (which I will write about in a future post).   In summertime there is a lot of greenery all around, especially with the ‘soft’ (meaning dampish) Irish weather, and in my next photo, the ferns are in full bloom

The sheep are also enjoying the lush sweet green grass around the countryside.

Sunday Stills : Clouds

A perfect sight

A perfect sight

Clouds at sunset or sunrise turn an ordinary glow into something far more interesting, don’t you agree?

And on a warm summer’s day, a few white fluffy clouds are always welcome!
