Here comes another month with a new set of words to choose from. I hope you like the selection and that you will find at least one word to work on. Here it goes: 








patulous (as in overgrown)

momentous (as in life-changing)

serene (as in serenissima)

  1. Never heard patulous! Thank you for a new word, as well as a lovely collection of images. What beautiful markings the donkey has, and you give a lovely glimpse into the heart of the cyclamen The music serves serene well. One day I’ll rise to this challenge! Do you begin with photos or words?

  2. Just too beautiful, Paula. Especially ”Serene”. This looks like a load of fun …. hang fire. In the words of a certain Mr Schwarzenegger: ”I’ll be back!”

  5. Just fabulous, Paula! Your ‘minibreak’ did you no harm 🙂 🙂 Hard to pick a favourite. We have vibrant cyclamen in our garden and I love the clarity of that shot (set against stone chippings?) The donkey reminds me of a sad beast I saw not too long ago, in Spain, and the pure joy of the bride is a wonderful, infectious capture. And La Serenissima- who wouldn’t want to be that serenely beautiful?

  7. I agree with Drake – every composition has its story. A fine gallery, Paula. And I like the sound of your recent search for happy faces in your town – a powerful antidote to those intent on spreading misery. A big cheer to you 🙂

  13. What wonderful shots Paula. I have a soft spot for donkeys so he wins my vote for charm, and patulous wins my vote for word 🙂

    • She was candidly posing for a real wedding photographer, and I was out there taking shots of my town :D. I love her expression too. It inspired me to seriously consider humans as photographic subjects.
