Sisters Ambling Together

Two of my daughters strolling around together during our trip to The Magic Kingdom.

Coors Line

What makes you memorable? How do you make other people smile when you’re not there? My husband is one of those adorable creatures who are happy when they find an assortment of words they can turn into a pun. Do you have one of them adorable creatures as well? As painful as it may be for some of us to be the ever present audience for these moments of objectively perceived hilarity, I can’t help but to admit, it makes them  memorable. It prompts a smile on my lips when I come across words he has punned before. I even find it humorous when puns sneak into my mind and burst out of my mouth with a loud chuckle . . . Gasp! it happens.  It does. It’s horrtible. Never the less, when it comes to puns, I always think of him in a fond manner (as annoying as it may be).

Cotton Candy

Lately, in my little corner of the world,  sunsets are being quite spectacular.  We have clouds colored in different shades of red and orange. Yesterday,  however we had a very soft tone of color that made everything in the sky look pink.  In contrast with their heavenly background,  the sunset made me think of cotton candy. 

I did play with the pictures,  but the original one at the bottom of this post is still my favorite.

Sunny

This picture was taken at Disneyland two weeks ago,  I’m just now getting to sort the lot out.  In this particular case,  my daughter Caillen(seven years old) gave me a chance to take five pictures only. She claims that one I start,  there’s no stopping me and is now giving me picture allowances.  We were walking by this bed of flowers and without prompting,  she said I could take five pictures if I wanted.  Of course I took those five pictures and a dozen more claiming I hadn’t noticed this one flower.  With no chance to review how the images came out,  I’m now presently surprised by the vibrant colors with which this beauty shines through.  It makes me think of the sun in its full splendor.
Good call Caillen!  ;-D

Sunset

For this picture,  the angle of the camera made all the difference.  I was trying to capture the silouette of my girls above the mountains in the background so I had to kneel down.  The reflection of the sun was still too bright, but accidentally took a picture  with my phone angled forward and discovered that the beautiful colors of the sunset came through perfectly.

Entangled Beauty’s Grit

Looking through my pictures and I saw this. A reminder that even when things seem chaotic, we naturally tend to get through those difficult times. If it is too much for you today, Just let nature do its thing and hang on. It helps to focus on one thing. Just hold on.

The strong winds from a recent storm delivered dried up tumbleweeds all over my flower bed. In this picture,  a young flower struggles to open its petals against the weight of these twigs which for now seem to guard a prisoner. The thorny branches frame beautifully a delicate blossom as it opens its petals into the calm of a new day.

After the Rain

image

Very seldom, I take a picture that needs no editing at all, in my opinion at least.  Since I like to put a different air or feel to the images I take,  I’m pleasantly surprise when a picture captures a personality of its own. I took this particular one after a strong rain storm that left quite a lot of debris on my little flower bed.  The colors on this beauty seemed brighter and the shape of its petals, bearing the weight of raindrops, added a tone of distinguished endurance. To my eyes, damaged flowers in the background add a complimentary frame to their new leading lady.

Tender Blooming

image

This young rose is carefully tended by busy ants (Actually,  they’re probably after food,  but for our writing purposes we will describe them as diligent care takers).

Out of the batch of pictures I took from this rose bush,  this is the only one to merit sharing. For some reason,  sometimes it is very easy to come across a batch of good pictures but this time,  lighting and angles were not in my favor.  Not wanting to let all my time go for naught,  I edited this picture to give it a look of blissful awakening.

I love to tell stories. If my pictures were a writing prompt, I would like them to reflect a moment of compelling emotion suspended in a time bubble that would inspire a writer to compose a short tale or at the very least,  a captivating description. I realize that a skilful writer would probably be able to accomplish such writing without a prompt,  but what I’m after is the instant in which people associate a picture with an emotion.  Wiring a story on that emotion is a matter of expression,  but even without expressing it,  I would like my pictures to impress people’s imagination with a little Bud that yearns to bloom at first light.

Feel free to use or share my pictures for personal, nonprofit purposes,  but always give credit where is due.  For profit purposes, permission to publish or if you wish to purchase prints, you may contact me at tyrocharm@gmail.com
The rest of my collections are on my flickr account,  you are most welcome to visit as well.
