Lisa has a new home for her wonderful Creative Exchange. Originally, I had planned to bring muffins as a welcome gift... - but the muffins are still in the oven and an unfortunately tight time schedule leaves no time to upload and link when they are ready.
So I decided to bring flowers to the "blog-warming" party instead. Roses, with traces of brown, but beautiful nevertheless - well, at least in my eyes. Lisa, have a fantastic start with your new Creative Exchange!
Happy Halloween everyone and have a wonderful week!

This cold but sunny weekend saw me heading over to a public garden where I expected to find all sorts of autumn flowers. I couldn't have been more wrong... - not a single mum, dahlia, Chinese lantern or Japanese Anemone to be found, but a rose garden with rows of wonderful roses, still blooming!
As this might be one of the last roses for this year I thought it to be just perfect for Lisa's Creative Exchange. I can't wait to see all the interesting photos being linked up over at Lisa's, I'll meet you there!
Have a wonderful week!

Can you believe it's Monday again? Time for Lisa's Creative Exchange!
Yesterday was a cold but sunny Autumn day and I was out and about with my camera. At one spot some trees were beautifully highlighted in the afternoon sun, a must-have photo, or so I thought.
I was playing with my camera settings while waiting for several people to "walk out of my picture", when suddenly a man yelled at me "stop taking pictures of me". I was absolutely shocked at his tone and tried to explain that I didn't take any pictures of him, that in fact I was waiting for an "empty" scenery, but he went on ranting. In the end, I just ignored him, took my picture - which then was totally uninspired - and walked on.
No wonder I love taking pictures of flowers and berries so much...
Have a wonderful week!

Texture by Kim Klassen
So it's Wednesday already and I missed Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday...
The challenge was to present something red, processed with one of her textures. As I have this beautiful red dahlia here ready, I thought I'd put it up nevertheless, even with a one day delay. Sometimes time just flies...!
Have a great day!
