Another day, another photo (or 2)

Competition entry using "purple prose" at http://frenchkisstextures.com/

I'm staying in my comfort zone today . . . . .flowers and I must get out with my camera at some point and do some more snapping otherwise I'm going to get get twitchy :-)

I know that if you're sat under grey skies this will seem difficult to understand but I'm really looking forward to the middle of September, the summer will almost be over. It's the autumn, winter and spring I enjoy most over here. It can be cold in the winter and rainy, but usually not for too long and I can get out and about whenever I want. In the summer unless it's early morning or evening, any trips outside have to be limited because of the fierce sun, even then I tend to hop from shade to shade. It's great if you want to spend the day at the beach which is lovely of course but for general living . . . . .roll on September !!

Ok so here we are for today.

This first shot is of Wisteria and treated with a texture by Leslie Nicole http://frenchkisstextures.com/
This is an entry in a competition at her site using the texture "purple prose"

and I thought I'd keep the purple theme going with this close up of a freesia.

I loved the way the sunlight was shining through the petals.

Looking forward to seeing what you are posting today .
Hope to see you soon. Love  Teresa xx :-)


  1. You've got mail!
    That edit is superb. What else did I expect :-)?
    Pity she doesn't do freebies. I would love to try a small version.

  2. Ta Teresa,
    I'm having a play, on a piece of an old Ermine cape.

  3. Come take a look. Too silly: didn't realize it was a proper grown up competition for prizes and the others are all so good. Thought it was just a weekend frolic. Never mind. Will give them a laugh.
    Lovely texture though. What blend did you use?

  4. Thanks for linking into artsee bloggers - I look forward to seeing more of your work.


I really appreciate your comments . . . thank you
