August Mood Board

I've really got to read my instruction manual. It was a gloriously sunny day as I proudly looked down upon the last of my Summer flowers - each one with it's own vibrancy and form. And yet when I looked back at the photos they had turned into this


Okay there are a few colours there but the centre has morphed into a mangled muddle. So in a somewhat vain attempt to redeem myself I'll show it from some different angles.



Not great either. Let's concentrate on some close ups.


That's better


And those berries



Autumn on a stick!


And I couldn't resist this little chap (although I think he may be responsible for some rather nasty bites about my person)

I'm sure with the passage of time (i.e. over the next week) I'll look back at these shots and think 'What? Tooo sunny to take a good shot?' But for now I'll sigh and drink in the last of summer's bounty whilst thinking ahead to drinking in the first of the blackberry gin.

Joining in with Karin and Asa (although I think they have read their manuals).

  15. Blackberry vodka here ;)

    I started with the mood boards back in the spring and kinda fell by the wayside. I do hope the project runs again next year when I have vowed to do better.

  22. Red is a very hard color to capture properly but you did a great job. The last photos are so crisp and vibrant. Have a wonderful week. Tammy
