CBBH Photo Challenge: In the Pink

Well it’s the last day of the month and I decided I’d better get my skates on and do Marianne’s ‘Pink’ Challenge.

In Italy, I wore my pink sun hat almost every day. It goes so well with gelato, don’t you agree?


Outside Starbucks, we spotted this sparkling pink Jag. I wanted to hang around to see if the driver was a woman or a man, but hubby wasn’t as curious as I was, so we’ll never know.


I wonder who is wrapped up so warmly in this pink doggy bath towel. Can you guess?


It’s none other than my sweet little granddaughter Taylor, who undoubtedly loves the colour pink.


I’ve found out over the years, that some of the nicest things come in pink packages.


In Great Grandma’s pond, there floated the most beautiful pink water-lily.


Sultry Bali nights can be a really magical pink,


but at the end of the day, there’s nothing quite like a pink Florida sunset.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my pink pics. To see more, click on the badge to hop over to Marianne’s blog.


The two blogs which I would like to share with and recommend to you this time, are:

Babsje Heron, who posts about her marvelous experiences with the Great Blue Herons in her neighbourhood. I love seeing her photos, and reading about her encounters with these beautiful birds.

Lynne Mayhew  is a writer, who travels “on and off the beaten path” with her photographer husband Ron. Her posts are both fascinating and educational, and I always look forward to the next one.

Do pop over to see them, and tell them I sent you.

Ailsa’s theme: Couples #2

I was out and about at one of our local malls yesterday, and still had Ailsa’s “Couples” theme in my mind.

I used to be a very shy person, but these days I’m much braver. I did however surprise myself yesterday. I saw a father and his teenage son walking towards the mall from the car park. The young man’s shoes just seemed to wave at me; they were a couple of beauties, so I chased after them, and just inside the door, I asked, “Please can I photograph your shoes for my blog?” The son looked bemused, but his dad was so proud that someone wished to take a pic of them, so he positioned him nicely, and made him put his feet neatly together for the occasion. I snapped them, and they actually thanked me! You have to admit that they are quite different. 😆

Emboldened by my successful attempt as a roving photographer, I followed this elderly couple who were pushing a stroller. I was eager to see what must surely be their cute little grandchild.

When I got in front of them, I saw that the baby was covered in white fur! The couple didn’t mind at all when I asked if I could photograph him, and his ‘mummy’ even asked him to smile for me, but he was not amused. 🙂

I’m afraid my next shot was rather sneaky, but I could hardly wake up this couple of sleeping beauties, or should I rather call them “Rip Van Winkles,” to ask their permission, now could I? 🙂

A bit further along, I saw a pair of REAL beauties on display. A couple of “His ‘n’ Hers” super luxury autos. Hubby and I couldn’t agree on who should have the Rolls and who should have the Bentley, so we ended up not buying them. 😦

Then of course if one is looking for a really nice pair. there’s always the ‘Victoria’s Secret’ storefront.
