CMMC January pick a topic from my photo

This week Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge is to pick a topic from her photo. Click on the link to view that photo and her other photos with topics derived from it.

In Cee’s photo I noticed blue sky, white clouds, rocks and water. My photo from earlier in January at the beach has all of these features.

January CMMC Challenge: Pink

For Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week the topic is the colour pink.

In our garden at present pink appears in two places. There are some cyclamen struggling to open and some pink berries. The pink berries made it into a photo. Perhaps I should have saved the photo in my previous post!

Another CMMC January close up or Macro

The day after I posted a photo for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge, I was surprised to see a new flower on one of our houseplants. It had been flowering for most of the year until the last few weeks. One of the remaining buds had opened completely.

It is very difficult to take a good photo of these plants. I had an idea – why not use the camera on the front of my phone?
