Weekend Pretty…Jewelled Lamps and Colouful Light

I didn’t take a lot of pictures this weekend (although I did see a lot of giant Lego figurines!), but here’s something I thought was pretty, a jewelled, colourful lamp which threw some beautiful patterns on the wall. I’ve always been a fan of stained glass and glass patterns, and this a good combination of both – something pretty for the dark evenings, eh?


Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV of Strawberries

It’s wedding season right now (yaay!) and I thought I’d post one of the photos from some of the weddings I’ve been to in the past for this week’s challenge. It’s always nice to have traditional pictures of the bride and groom, the cake and of the amazingly-dressed guests, but after a while it can get a bit boring to take the same pictures over and over again!

Here’s one pictures of a couple on their wedding day, being embraced by a sister in the background, with the focus being on…strawberries. I love this shot because of the colour of red which is a theme throughout the picture. It’s also a picture I love because a friend and I got the idea of doing our own decor do the wedding and placing bowls of strawberries throughout the tables, which was a very popular idea with the guests too!

So for me, this picture not only sums up the sweet moments of the wedding, but it also represents all the running around and the laughs that I had with one of my closest friends : )


Fleeting Gold Moments on a Merry-Go-Round

To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

The word fleeting means a lot of various things to different people. As part of this week’s Weekly Photo challenge, I’m posting a lit-up, colourful merry-go-round, perhaps to symbolise fleeting times spent at a fair, fleeting childhood, or just a fleeting five-minutes on a ride. You pick.

Chocolate Dreams Can Come True

…in my case anyway. How scrumptious do these look?!  It’s not often I get to see some amazing chocolate art up close but this stuff looked crazily detailed, and rich enough to make anyone nauseous! Mind you, this stuff wouldn’t last long in my house (the ice-cream would get eaten by one of my sisters first). I like to think that when it comes to amazing chocolate stuff like this, people’d SAVOUR it when it goes into their mouths. :/
