The pastels I used in this effect, deliberately distracted me from the familiar, bright orange of the Poinciana in full bloom. Rather, my head was filled with other associations when viewing this photograph. The delicate blue made me visualise a mirror with heavy scalloped edging reminiscent of 1940/50’s decor!

How about you?

I would be interested in hearing if the image prompted different feelings for you?

Something for you to ponder about.


About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

  2. Amanda, what I enjoyed the most about your images is the layering of meaning. Somewhat as you implied in your description. It sparks the notion that Mother Nature is a treasure trove of sometime simple but mostly complicated flora and fauna. Happy Photo Challenge.

    It reminded me of animations we used to watch in biology showing blood pumping through our veins, weirdly enough! Nice edit 🙂
