Well this was ‘pink’ week and I’ll be honest, pink’s OK for nail polish and lippy, and flowers of course, but that’s about as much as I’m bothered with it, or so I thought. However, it seems I have been fooling myself as I seem to have way more pink stuff than I realised!

Day 45~Treasure ~ Happy Valentines Day! Pink is a delicate colour.  It represents all things sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine and tender.  It is associated with bubblegum, babies, little girls, cotton candy and sweetness!  What can you find today that is pretty in pink! Not so much pretty, but at least a ‘treasure’, my World’s Greates Mum rosette which Ben gave me when he was a youngster, and he and my grandson really are my treasures, as are my photo’s of them.

Treasure

Day 46~ Meditative ~ As we continue with Pink color week, I want to encourage you to be mindful and present as you go through your day!  Keep an eye out for the pinks that catch your attention. You may discover pink in the most unexpected place; like these little pinks I found washed up along the shore!  Hope you are surprised by what you find today! Can’t wait to see!  I was at work all day and not much pinks going on there unless we count the ear canal which is (mostly) pink but I’m not allowed to photograph. As it happened though I was sent to pick up lunches at Morrisons and came across this big candle with a pink flower embedded in it so I got that for the photo today.

Meditative

Day 47~ Blurry ~ I just happened to have some pink glitter and scrapbook paper handy to execute my idea today.  I set this up by propping up my paper, getting my camera in place and ready to shoot with my remote, and then I stood behind the paper and just poured the glitter out while using a slower shutter speed and voila – a blurry pink photo!  Slow shutter speeds will be your friend today (and lots of patience as well).  *Sigh* Who I ask you has pink glitter and scrapbooks just ‘handy’?? I have my phone handy, and my purse and some tissues. Who are these people? Roses will suffice.

Blurry

Day 48~ One of the definitions of passion is “an extreme interest in something.”  The colour pink is said to be a combination of the passion of red mixed with the purity of white.    Putting them together for today’s photo seems to be a perfect match.   We all have our individual passions and interests.  As 365’ers I think it’s safe to say that one of them is  photography.   When you think of passion, what comes to mind?  What are you passionate about photographing?  Capture your passion and bonus points if includes the colour pink. I am so glad she defined this as “an extreme interest in something”  and I didn’t have to snog my bloke (again) for a photo. So, mosaic tiles instead, mosaics being my 2nd passion. Or 3rd if we’re counting my hubby, which I wasn’t but I will in case he reads this. ♥️

Passion

Day 49~ Down ~You can interpret today’s prompt a couple of ways.  Are you feeling down? Maybe something pink may cheer you up. Or…you can shoot down for your photo. Think flatlay. Have you ever taken time to experiment with unusual backdrops? The roses in my photo were placed on a cookie sheet. Doesn’t that give it more interest? You can shoot high key on a white background, you can go dark and moody with a black background. You can use contrasting colors. It’s totally up to you. But, think about shooting down on your pink subject and think of a way to make the background interesting so that the pink will pop! Think I did this one OK, it’s not a flatlay but I did shoot down, and the words are motivational/funny for when you are down. Also- cool background and the pink is a’poppin’!

Down

Day 50~ Circle ~ Am I the only one who thinks doughnut when the prompt words are pink and circle? When you are intentionally trying to include shapes in a photo, it is fun to incorporate both the obvious and the maybe not so obvious.  In this photo, the doughnut is the obvious subject.  Its shape is enhanced by the circle of the stand.  The hole in the center of the doughnut continues the “theme” as does the base of the stand even though the circle is incomplete.  The eye is expecting to see circles, so it will find the incomplete ones as well. How many circles can you include in your photo today? Doughnuts shmonuts! Prawn vol au vents for this puppy! 14 circles. I’m winning at pink!

circle

Day 51 ~ Take a photo of something pink that presents itself to you today. You may remember back in December I was looking after Sophies cats for 2 weeks whilst she went off to Spain to stay for Christmas with her chap. Well Sophie is still in Spain due to Covid travel and quarantine problems and we’ve still got the cats. Yesterday I got on Amazon and ordered some toys for them, and today the Postman presented me with a package, and I presented the cats with the contents of it. There were many lurid colours, so I did the selective colour thing, (which I’m none too fond of but sometimes has to be done) to pick out all the pink bits. Not as sharp as I’d like, but was wanting to get one with Vinnie inside it and he moves fast for a big guy! Also, Vincent’s nose, so cute 😀

Present

So that’s the end of pink week, but stay tooned! as tomorrow we start symmetry week.

    What a fun series this is, and your photos are both interesting and excellent. You hold my attention throughout. I even love the cat and mice- though that’s a very long two weeks! Wishing you a great week ahead 🙂 🙂

    I have to admit, I don’t have a scrapbook handy, and there’s no pink glitter in my house. Nor a cat with a pink nose. In fact — looking around, even at the bookshelves! — I don’t see a spot of pink anywhere. I live in a sad house.

    A cat’s pink nose was an inspired use for the challenge. I am now looking around to see if I have any pink stuff in my office, hang on…
    Just a highlighter marker. 🙂
