Friends. Photography. Adventure.


For last year’s words belong to last year’s language 
And next year’s words await another voice.

T. S. Eliot

While trying to come up with a title for my New Year ‘firework’ photo I learnt that peony is the name of the firework that “has a starlike explosion that quickly turns into a bulging circle of stars.” So there you go, you learn something new every day! However you spend your New Year, fireworks or no fireworks, I hope it’s a happy one and may 2019 treat you all kindly.

  1. I love the edit on this. It makes your skin look like marble. So touchable! Although, I think unedited you is even more tempting.

  2. I agree with honey. This edit is great and I love the colours. A beautiful firework ?

  3. Beautiful – striking and lovely – I have one of these pretty things to use – I keep forgetting – x

  4. How delightful!
    Beautiful image.

  5. Lovely! Worth the waiting for the ultra slow internet at my parent’s house for this delightful photo to load 🙂

  6. This is a gorgeous shot! Plus you taught me something new! Thanks for sharing ?

  7. A strikingly beautiful image!
    I wish you all the best for 2019 and look forward to read more of your posts and see more of your images and your collaborations with other people 🙂
