I see … PINK

Pink is supposedly such a girlie colour but I was never that keen on it. That thought set off the idea of trying to put together an interesting post on pink! Most images are from WordPress bloggers. ALL photos are used with permission. Many thanks to the “permitters” who all sent such kind replies. Some even expressed interest in reading the post once published! Thanks for making this post possible.

I’m from New Zealand but this sheep ain’t. This was taken by Viveka at an exhibition at Wanas sculpture park, northern Skane (Scania), Sweden.

“If the People Have No Bread Let Them Eat Cake”, by Henrik Plenge Jakobsen, is living pink Chanel fragrance sheep sculptures, not that I could smell any of it.” – Viveka

These are real, live sheep dyed pink and you can see them on the original post …

hydrangea

Stunning shot of pink hydrangea flowers from Pete Hillman, Staffordshire, UK.

Pete’s very special accompanying paragraph reads as follows:

“I have always loved Hydrangeas. My Nan and Grandad grew them at the front of their house, and so did my Mom and Dad. It’s amazing how when you see a certain flower they bring back such wonderful, precious memories. Because of my love for the abundance of showy blossoms this popular shrub produces, and because of the fond memories, I have grown Hydrangeas in my garden for some years. Although, for the first time ever, I made the most silly mistake of pruning then at the wrong time so I did not get a single blossom last year. But this year, they are back again, and in splendour.”

Roseate spoonbill, taken by Ted Jennings. I’m utterly fascinated by the photos of roseate spoonbills and also alligators that I get to see by following Ted Jenning’s blog. Ted is from South Carolina, USA.

village-underground-street-art-24-hours-shoreditch

Last but not least is this wonderfully joyous mural photographed by Zarina “a Dutch girl living in London”. Village Underground music venue in Shoreditch, east London. Zarina describes how “you’ll be stunned by its unique interior that resembles a grand underground cave”.

The mural was painted by Argiris Ser and is titled “Sea Of Knowledge: A mother Chipac guides and educates her children in a sea of knowledge.” The building on the back of the mother Chipac (creature) is a school. Great web page about Ser and the mural HERE

    1. I totally agree with you and I love all the different colours. I’ve done a couple of posts on coloured fungi by an Aussie photographer Steve Axford. Just under my blog header is a magnifying glass. If you click on that and then type fungi in the box you’ll get 2 posts on coloured fungi – perhaps you’ll enjoy the photos as much as I did! Thanks for visiting!

    1. Very genuine Ted – I love seeing all the wildlife that you record through your photos. Things I’d never see at home here like gators! I’ve seen white spoonbills here in NZ but we don’t have pink! Big thank you for letting me use your wonderful roseate spoonbill photo 🙂 And thanks for visiting.

      1. That’s why we are photographers. We moved here to record everything we can see. Coming from the cold north photography in the southern lowcountry is very different. So here we catch a little piece in time and try to share around the world. Funny thing is, we do ! Our site has visitors from all parts of the globe. How great is that 😀😀😀.
