Photo Rehab #13 – Beauty

Standard

I love beauty…whether it’s the way food is displayed or the eyes made up (I’m good at this one) wink or the little pieces you add to a dress to make it different, I just love the aesthetic abilities some people are gifted with and the manner with which they maximize it.

So, I went on a trip and as we stepped into the lobby of the hotel, I met this amazing light and decorative item on the side table. I hope they give you pleasure like they did me! And off to the #PhotoRehab Clinic I go!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Inspiration

Standard

What inspires me? Writing is source of Inspiration for me, but what prompts me to write? It is the beautiful empty journal, the pen. More than that, it is beauty and nature. Today, let’s walk with Mr. Peacock and get inspired. 🙂

Mr. P6We have guests today and they came with children, I wonder how the day will be.

Mr. P I need to get away fast before their interest turns to me!

Mr. P1

They have seen me, run little legs, don’t fail me today.

Mr. P2

The one in pink seems interested in my colours, no way girl. I have an appointment somewhere else.

Mr. P3

Phew, I’m almost out of ‘harm’s’ way, thank goodness!

Mr. P4

These humans don’t just know when to stop and until I get to my safe haven, ain’t no stopping me now, I’m on the move!

Mr. P5Free at last! Free at last! Free at long last!

Photo Rehab #9 – Victory over Solitude

Standard

Last week I did a Makeover Cover for PhotoRehabMakeoverCover and because I love the pix, I am using it for my fellow patients at Lucile’s Photo Rehab Clinic. You might need to go there to get healed of withdrawal syndrome or you just need some color to brighten up your life.

SolitudeIn the mean while, you may feel down or alone, but like this white flower in the midst of so many green and dark green leaves, you can rise, having victory over SOLITUDE!

Photo Rehab #7 – Muse

Standard

I get inspired by a beautiful Journal that is empty…the blank pages speak to me, beckoning that I create and make something out of their plainness – that voice I find irresistible! Inspired by beauty, pain, love and by children.

I’m not sure how to capture all in one, so I’ll just stick to children. #PhotoRehab

Dancing @ the edge of the sea…

When we got to the beach, my son who wouldn’t normally step a toe in the swimming pool decided to test the waters. It wasn’t an immediate desire though. I guess seeing his sibling and cousins have all the fun was too much for him to bear. And when he conquered that ‘fear’ he even followed his dad into depths (on daddy’s arms of course!)

Now, King Earl rules the water ways and even dances in it! And for someone who wouldn’t put a toe, going till it’s thigh-high… that’s DEPTH for him.

Let’s dance along with him.

Slain but still standing

Slain but still standing

Okay Lucile you win…

You really know how to pull me in. It’s no secret that I love pictures and yup I had withdrawal symptoms too but I guess I covered it up with other stuffs.

I took this picture with my faithful Samsung Duos phone (I love the pix it gives) when we went to Ife last year December. This tree is situated behind my senior sister’s home. I found it intriguing, as I noticed the tree had been cut down and burnt yet it was still standing. Also it seem each limb was struggling to rule over the other. But we will never know, if only trees could speak my language!

There’s another angle I took of it though…maybe I’ll add that in subsequent ones.
