cee’s fun foto challenge: texture

It was really hot today and i’ve heard in the news that the temperature rose to 35.2 degrees in the metro. Anyway, i managed to take some photos in the garden. These are photos of a zamia cone.

Zamia is a wonderful indoor/outdoor plant. Instead of flowers, it grows cones with a beautiful texture. It’s actual size is only about 1.5 inches. On close up, its texture looks like a carpet of flowers arranged so close together. So pretty isn’t it?

cee’s fun foto challenge: lines

Today’s temperature reading is a hot 30 degrees. In the days to come it’s going to go hotter than that.

Last weekend, it rained just a little, sort of just passing through and i managed to capture some photos of my garden as soon as the drizzle stopped. I’m dreaming of a cooler weather so here are my entries for this week’s theme.

It’s exciting and refreshing to see the lines formed by droplets of rain on leaves on a hot and humid day.

Oh by the way, it’s my avocado tree. It has grown so tall since the day we planted it. It’s almost reaching my terrace.

The frames are so lovely. I love its Victorian design.

cee’s fun foto challenge: color of my choice is PINK

Pink is one of my favorite colors. It is the universal color of love and beauty. Homes decorated with pink flowers provide the aura of calmness and relaxation.

For this photo challenge, i’ve chosen this bi-colored white and pink carnation. It has white petals with soft pink edges that resemble a beautiful lace pattern. At first glance, it doesn’t look real but the flower is really fresh and vibrant.

The Chinese think Earth is associated with the qualities of patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work and stability. The earth element is also nurturing and seeks to draw all things together with itself, in order to bring harmony, rootedness and stability. Other attributes of the earth element include ambition, stubbornness, responsibility and long-term planning. In pathology, the earth can represent selfishness and self-centeredness. (source: wiki)
