sleeping beauty

Finally, the orchids awakened from their deep slumber and bloomed. I remembered i was just talking to them (yes, i talk to my orchids hehe!) the week before and i was telling them that they are supposed to be flowering by now. And today… these beauties greeted me this morning. Thank you orchids. Hmm… did they really ABIDE by my request?

I love the crinkled edges of the flower’s intermediate lobe and they really give it that distinct dainty characteristic. Oh, did you notice the insect inside? Surely, it was attracted by its mild sweet scent.

And speaking of beauties… here’s a photo of my sleeping beauty.

Star loves to sleep on my pillow. I usually reserve a pillow just for her because when i hop in bed she would follow and lay beside me.

Happy Sunday everyone!

 

weekly photo challenge: abstract

This week’s photo challenge is about taking a photo of something familiar and turn it into something else.

With a little photo editing this is how it looked like. Although it still looks like something familiar but it may or may not look like what it really is depending upon our own interpretation.

Abstract as a form of art refers to those that doesn’t have no trace of anything recognizable thus making the viewer interpret it in their own ways as to what it really means. It takes an imaginative mind to be able to translate something unreadable into something beautiful.

Love is good example of an abstract concept. It doesn’t have any physical existence but it exists in our thoughts. However, love exists if we believe it exists. Like a form of an abstract art, love could have a lot of interpretations and be differently understood.
