Lovely flower porn there Paula.
Yes I will share a B&W photo!
I meant to ask you: is there such an expression as flower porn or it is one of the words you coined? I noticed in your lily porn post last week that same expression… I am not shocked though I would probably use a different word (sensual, erotic) 😀
It’s just something I made up (I might have unconsciously picked it up somewhere, so don’t credit me for it): flower porn & cloud porn (cloud porn I know for sure that I’ve heard somewhere else) – I love those expressions.
I am planning on posting a lot of cloud porn in near future :D. You know I wasn’t being critical just inquisitive 😉 If I didn’t know you better, I would think you put porn in your posts title to attract traffic 😀
Cloud porn photos are awesome. I think it’s safe to say that we all shoot them when we’re out flying.
Putting porn in the titles to attract traffic would be counter productive, because the SEO that Google and many other search engines use, filter out porn & porn related sites from the searches.
So, I really shouldn’t do it at all, but sometimes I can’t help myself 😀
Interesting. I did not know they filter it out :D. When you put that lily porn post, I went on searching (linguist as I am, to see if that is a common expression) and my search lead me to some porn site featuring a female called lily 😀 You should be yourself, and by all means use the words you feel like using. I see a lot of successful writing in blogoshpere, but many of them sound just like somebody else. I appreciate genuine voices/persons. For example I like to use words like “buggers” and “idiot” and some of my followers frown on that, but I need to speak up my mind.

Paula, I have always thought there is something beautifully sensual about orchid blossoms, and your exquisite photo together with the music has set a lovely tone for today 🙂
Here’ s what came to my mind: http://esengasvoice.wordpress.com/2014/09/21/black-white-sunday-velvety/
Then we have the same impression of orchid blossoms :). Beside wild cyclamen it is my favourite flower. I am also happy you enjoyed my music selection (Mogwai – Now you are taken). Thank you, Ese….
My favourites are hyacinths but I like orchids a lot – also because they manage to survive life together with me, despite absence of green fingers. 🙂
Mogwai is a discovery for me – a wonderful one. Thank you!
🙂 pleasure to share with you
Then you must check out hyacinth orchids! They a common in the bush near my place, and devils to photograph, although Paula would manage easily!
That sounds just about right – 2 of my favourites in one! 🙂 Just looked up on internet – beautiful, would be fun to photograph. Paula would do a wonderful job, that’ s for sure 🙂
Lucky you. We don’t have them here.
Wow this is a beaut… love it..
It makes me happy to hear that. Thank you, Rob 🙂
Thank you, Mekala 🙂 I appreciate your visit 🙂
The black and white close up of this flower is really beautiful Paula. Shows up the detail.
Detail is undoubtedly more evident in this one than it would be in colour. Thank you, dear visitor 🙂
For lunch yesterday we ate something that was delicious – though not velvety. My contribution this week: http://collinesblog.wordpress.com/2014/09/21/freshly-baked-bread/
Don’t you ever rest? I think it can feel velvety in the mouth. Thank you so much, Colline 🙂
Beautiful Paula 🙂
The velvety sheen is lovely in black and white, Paula. I’m lingering a while because I like that track too. It took a long while to start but it suits very well. 🙂 Sunday hugs!
Sunday hugs to you Jo 🙂 xx

What a beautiful macro shot Paula. Here is my black and white for this week: http://travelwithintent.com/2014/09/21/bollards/
beautiful black and white
Complimenti per I tuoi “miracoli”fotografici!
🙂 Ciao Anna.
Soft, delicate and very nice textures. I don’t recognize the music selection, who is the artist?
Mogwai: Now you are taken. Thank you, Mark. Your comments have made my day 🙂
Yes, Mogwai I have heard them before just did not recognize this time. I’ll have to listen to more this evening – it’s perfect for a Sunday night.
Lovely black and white photo! 🙂
I usually find orchids almost off-putting, but this looks fascinating.
Very soft and expressive, Paula! Here is my entry: http://livingwithmyancestors.wordpress.com/2014/09/21/black-white-sunday-velvety/
That’s an excellent shot of your Black Velvet :). Thank you, Linda
Velvety indeed. Lovely shot, Paula.
Thank you, Lisa
I love orchids too – although I catch them in the wild, not always successfully. Oddly, I was dusting off a string of orchid photos as I broke to see your blog – hyacinth, greenhood, caladenia and donkey, all local. I need your photographic skill, although a few of mine aren’t bad: taken with the old camera, which I think I need to resurrect: only 3 megapixels but excellent macro capacity, which my 21 megapixel one doesn’t have.
That shot of yours is wonderful. Do you grow orchids? You obviously know them or your photo would not have been so good.
No, I just care for them until their death.
Pure aesthetics! Very well captured.
I thought I thanked you with a mail, but I haven’t. It means a lot Uday 🙂
Nice one, do wonder what colors it is 😉
(Oh, i love Mogwai, great song!)
Weird orange with intense pink stripes 😀
