Rednesday - Four Fantastic Fotos!

This week I am bit under the weather, so I decided to go to Flickr and find 4 photographs I found exciting to view, were out of the ordinary, and brightened my day. Here are the 4 I chose. I cannot imagine having the skill to capture such images with a camera...not for me in my lifetime, anyway. I am in awe of the photographers, and if you click on the titles beneath the mosaic, you will be able to view their impressive bodies of work. The mosaic does not do them justice...trust me! The two red sunrises are magnificent, the red door and iron fence remind me of my trips to England, and the red cup of tea with the steam rising makes me wish I had it sitting here beside me at this very moment. All 4 pictures seem to be trying to leap from the screen and into my room! Happy Rednesday to all of you.


  1. Sorry to hear you are not feeling up to par. Seems those kind of days just keep coming around. You made some very good choices in your red selections.

  2. Hi Genie, I am sneaking to the computer on my blogging break to tell you how inspired I am by your venture back to quilt making. They are all so very lovely. I want very much to make a quilt myself and think the pre-cut fabrics are the route I should try. To answer your question about making tags from vintage images. All of my monthly tags I have made from images down loaded from Flickr. There are so many lovely groups and so many images. I have saved thousands to my desktop in files for each category. The idea for my monthly tags is to show that expensive scrapbook store embellishments are not necessary to create wonderful paper art. I do hope you will give it a try. A post or two back I show all of the items I use when working with paper - you will be surprised by how little it is! Have a lovely week! Elizabeth

  3. Love the red cup of tea, looks so friendly and cozy. I love RED! Thanks for visiting me today. My chair is red because I painted it a few years back...I've painted it so many times I don't know what color it was originally. As I said...I love RED.

  13. Wow ... terrific mosaic ... and you chose some outstanding photos. The shot of the red and blue sunrise is so beautiful!!! Great choices.
    Hope you're feeling a little better today ... I often 'cruise' Flickr when I need a bit of a lift ... there are so many fabulous photos that create a sense of awe and wonderment!
    Thanks for visiting my blog post ... such lovely comments. I'm glad that you enjoy your visits to my garden spaces here ... if I ever won the Lotto I would ask a landscaper/garden designer to help me create more garden spaces on this rocky hillside ... there's still so much space I'd love to fill with plants!!!
