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.

Sinful Sunday

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

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

    Well you have a very beautiful peony, which happens to be one of my favourite flowers so that seems fitting.
