... with open eyes, and a generous heart, there is awe 'round many a corner ...
Good to see you back too Julie. I always enjoy your beautiful pictures.
Beautiful, Julie. Your well-chosen words convey much.Kay, Alberta
Ah, yes. Like the surprising dried apricot that is bursting with toothsome tenderness. I've been shooting on manual for several months now, Julie. As you surmised, I am indeed attracted to the obliterated background. I like how it makes the figures in the foreground float. I have so very much to learn about photography.
A great post.
Words and pictures match perfectly.
Great photographic similes...the availability of old age and the unwanted ripeness is the burgeoning pandemic.Sad. True.
Interesting means that it held my attention for longer than usual. You should know that Julie. I can't disturb Pat, she is ironing now and might never get started again.
*chortle*I can hear her spluttering in the background. You are an incorrigible old retrobate!!Now now ... before you give me lip ... I am not calling you a 'reprobate' - that is a fish of an entirely different hue.Here is the Urban Dictionary's meaning for 'retrobate': n. One who can't, or who refuses to walk the bleeding edge of technology, preferring old, reliable tools. I.e. one who shuns PDAs for notebooks, pencils and pocket calendars; would rather meet in real life than on MySpace; and who'd still shoot with cameras which require film. A Luddite.I take it also to mean one who chains his wife to the ironing board.
Julie, it is just as I feared, you are a very shrewd judge of character.
Love the title but the images are so beautiful.
Beautiful images, Julie. This is my last visit from North Africa (sadly!) I will be online in South Africa in about two days' time and visit again. Till then, blessings and hugs Jo
Only you can make tatty old fallen camellias look great.
You could add a picture of me there. love the tit for tat comments with Bruce.
Such vivid colour and detail. Just stunning.
I needed the dictionary for tatty. I wondered how it differed from tattered; I guess more worn than torn.
Huh ... you guys dont have 'tatty', eh? ... by the end of the school year, most exercise books are tatty ... yeah, more worn than torn would just about cover it.
You are the master (mistress?) of the details my friend.
Brilliant. Photos and words.
Thank you, Jilly.
