Friendship - mucun


About 25 years ago, a friend and I visited beautiful Waikiki Beach, and were brave enough to try parasailing. The pictures under the cut are of meeeeee, doing this fearsome thing! I'd like to say it was thrilling, but I was scared to death every single second. It's definitely one of those adventures you want to look back on, but that are SCARY when you're in the middle of them.

This is the bluest of blue skies, and I think you'll agree.

Challenge; Week 35.

I'm sorry that the 'Borrowed' seems to have stumped a good few people. But the final of the four that make up the rhyme to bring luck to a bride should be easier.

After 'something old, something new, something borrowed...' comes 'something blue'.

So that is your challenge for this week... blue.

Borrowed - Borrowed Time

It took me a while to put this one together. I couldn't come up with anything for borrowed except borrowed time - my constant companion since I always seem to be on deadline. I took photos of the clocks that are around me on my way to work, at the shop, and on my computer screen, put them together into a photo montage, and used selective filters and effects to give drama. It was still a rush job, though, so I apologize. I should have done a bit better, but wanted to get this posted already.

Blue blossoms

Blue has been my favourite colour for many years, and I have a deep love for all kinds of blue flowers and blossoms. Have some of my favourites:

- chicory, or blue sailors, in our garden -
(what common name do you usually give them?)
