Carnations — FOTD Aug 04

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Some more pale pink carnations in the sun for Cee’s FOTD.


Blue Sky Backdrop — Fan Of… #65

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is blue sky backdrop. I was getting shots of some carnations in the back garden the other day and thought they would look good against the blue of the sky. Happy with the results, I started shooting up at an angle to really get the depth of blue coming through. This was very effective with the yellow and pink bouquet ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It turns out I’ve been a Fan Of… this for a while; this gallery is from about 10 years ago ๐Ÿ˜€

How To Join In
1. Create a Fan Ofโ€ฆ Photo Post.
2. Add a link to your Fan ofโ€ฆ blog post in my comment box or create a pingback by linking to my post.
3. Title your post Fan Ofโ€ฆ or add Fan Ofโ€ฆ tag.

Have a great week ๐Ÿ˜

With that in mind, whilst doing the weekly shop, we get some flowers, usually with plenty of life in them, and carnations fit the bill; that & the fact that they don’t break the bank ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
