‘Scented Scarlet’


Slide into the deep,

Embrace the velvet cardinal…

Taste the flaming sweet,

Of the hidden oracle.

Into the deep
Into the deep
Red Velvet
Red Velvet
Sweet bloodline
Sweet bloodline

There was no doubt in my mind of the colour I’ll be choosing to snapshot today…beautiful red:)

Today’s Photo 101 assignment – A Pop of Colour

I’ve had a quick play with enhancing the main colour, but at the same time put it into contrast with plain colours like white and black…I’ve loved the effect I’ve created:)

I really hope you’ve enjoyed it as well!

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Vivid.”

Open your eyes,

Breath in the air…

Feel the warm touch

of a love affair…

Another week of sharing our thoughts with images…

I love so much these photo challenges and in today’s post, it’s all about strong emotions…nothing is stronger than love:)

I would like to also link this post to Photo Rehab 101…a place where you can share your passion for photography and connect with some great bloggers. One of my lovely fellow bloggers, Lucile, introduced me to the Rehab Clinic Photo 101…thanks again! Have a look at her page, there are some amazing stories and photos,  that will inspire you:)

Here is the address for the Rehab Clinic, if you share the same symptoms:)

This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy Townend, Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming of Leaving and Project Easier.

As former patients informed me that the withdrawal symptoms remained active, and new patients recognized the same symptoms, The Clinic – Photo Rehab  reopened its doors.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Passionately Curious, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

How to join: 

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.

‘Flower Power’


Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” Coco Chanel

If you had any doubts until now…here it goes…I LOVE FASHION:)

I like to think that most of us love to look and feel good…but I also know that sometimes we like to say that we don’t care about fashion or trend…what’s in or what’s last year’s piece!

…and even if we don’t follow the catwalk, big brands or well-known fashion designers, that does not mean that our wardrobe it’s not a slight echo of this year’s spring/summer collection.

Fashion is beauty…but it is also personality…an imitation of our DNA, if you want….

No matter how much we would like to deny…today, tomorrow…near or far future…we are going to realise that we are not so far from being fashionable. You might say that there is nothing in your wardrobe that is trendy…I would say…’look again’!

Fashion is not always trying to keep up with new collections, styles, cuts and fabrics…fashion is what you love wearing, because what you love today…many more will adore tomorrow!

I don’t love everything that each season’s trend brings…but everything I wear becomes a new style…a new line…because I decide what makes me feel good, confident and fabulous:)))

For that reason only, this week I bring to you…the flower power!

If you didn’t notice yet…this spring is full of flowers…and I don’t just mean, in the garden:)

Left and right, everywhere you look, from vests to dresses and jackets to trousers…everything is covered in flowers!

I’ve never been a big fan of flower print…and I do not believe I will ever become one:)

What I do like is…simplicity…a subtle touch of what might have been a flower impression!

I like to keep it simple but always with a touch of a personal style.

If you page through a fashion magazine…catch a catwalk show while flipping through the TV Channels or just fancy knowing what else is out there…don’t think too much about it, try out new things, adapt them to your own style and you will see that in a blink of an eye you will enjoy what you’re wearing more…and appreciate old pieces that you’ve thought you’ll never wear again!

Fashion is what you make it to be…what you see around you is just a gentle push to take your imagination on a beautiful journey of discovery. Don’t forget…you are the artist creating your next masterpiece…so, make it unique because there is only one of YOU!

The choice is always yours…
