holding the roses

"almost all words do have colour, and nothing is more pleasant than to utter a pink word
and see someone's eyes light up and know it is a pink word for him or her too."
- gladys taber

my fascination with colour has not diminished, but my fascination with film has flourished, and i find that my older cameras tend to render what i see in a subtle and subdued - but infinitely true and beautiful - palette.
i do wonder, though, if my using long-expired film could have anything to do with it?
i am a late and plodding learner, but i am a learner nonetheless.


  1. I am a long-time reader/lurker who checks every day to see if you have graced us with another utterly inspired picture accompanied by that perfectly spare accompanying text. Your astute observations poignantly touch my days.

  2. I came to your site via rannie's. Nice work... Love the colors your getting. On rannie's site you said you found an internet lab that does 120 slide? have you tried them out yet? email me if you have and what your opinions and results are.

  3. Ah, great, you have found yourself another bicycle in a perculiar colour. Not a bad composition.

  4. Pink is one of my favorite colors and I love this photograph!
    Your photoblog is one of my favorites. Keep up the fantastic work!

  5. The pink and rust make for a wonderful combo.

  6. I found you by way of your Gladys Taber quote...a lovely use of it too I might add.
    This is a wonderful site and I've got you bookmarked!!
