This week’s Fun Foto (sic) Challenge has the theme of ‘Pink’. I really did try very hard to avoid the cliché of posting a straightforward picture of a flower of said hue.
Unfortunately I lack both the imagination or the depth of archive to avoid the floral world entirely. However, with some judicious cropping, framing and other editing I managed to produce this quasi-abstract image of the flower usually called ‘Red Hot Poker’ – although this one actually was pink.
‘Pink’ is the theme chosen by Frank for this week’s Tuesday Challenge. I suspect that flowers will prove to be the most common source of inspiration: it was certainly my initial idea and I have a fair few images in my library. However, I decided to try to look for something a little different and came up with this.
In the centre of the French city of Limoges you can find this vintage carousel, or merry-go-round. It’s kept under wraps through the winter, of course, but during the summer tourist season it’s in full swing. It’s well-looked after and in excellent condition considering its age.
And, as you can see, it’s also very pink in parts:
I wish I could have come up with something a bit more original than a flower for week 8 of the 52 Weeks Photo Challenge being run by The Girl That Dreams Awake. However, the truth of the matter is that pink isn’t really my colour.
However, that’s not to say this wasn’t a very nice pink poppy (complete with wasp) growing in Monet’s Garden at Giverny.
