  4. Don't know if I'm a philistine but the objects that are leaping to my attention are the loaves of Bread..
    they look scrummy (perhaps I should go eat breakfast!)

  5. Jinksy,
    and who'd have thought that there are so many of them in a cold grey day? ;-)


    Badger,
    don't tell me you walked over it? ;-)

    Shadow,
    especially when combined with a warm brown! ;-)

  7. Vicki Lane,
    thank you! :-)

    Juju,
    I was very tempted to call these reds "magenta" - but then I remembered that I have read somewhere that a German cell phone company has copyrighted that colour for their exclusive use (something along that line, a patent, something), so all I would dare say is that it is a purplish red. I went even further and searched "cie" at Google Image: Help, I am drowning in a sea of non-magenta, i.e. more purplish-reds than I ever dreamed of! ;-)

  8. P.S.:
    Can one imagine imaginary colours??? ;-)

  11. Each of those pictures is strong on its own, each in a different way.

    Your photographs always prompt my mind to take a journey, sometimes a nostalgic journey, sometimes a journey to a place that is always beautiful, sometimes to my soul.

    Yes, I certainly thought of nostalgia, a beautiful place when I saw the rosy reflected bread.

    Thank you! xo

  19. A royal treatment for our daily bread - it deserves the red carpet or the red drape in this case.
    I don't care much for patenting common words by companies. The word "Magenta" has been there long before this company claimed the right to it. Same with the colour. I am amazed that any court or legislative body would grant rights to something like that.

    1. P.S. Sorry, the Magenta thing raised my blood pressure and I forgot to thank you for the beautiful Luna song on my post today. It brings goosebumps.
