Natural Monday: Soul Silence

Framed Sunset by rubys polaroid

Silence doesn’t have a sound, it’s the absence of sound. Sounds define our world, the wind rushing through car horns blaring on the street. The ever present background hum of voices, sound is everywhere but sometimes your ears go silent not because the world is silent but your soul is crying so loud for what it has lost every other sound gets drowned out.

Took this shot 2 days before the New Year, the sun was setting and it felt like the year was saying goodbye. The dusty air and cold haze acted like a blanket for the sun, and this was the only peek i had of the one of the last sunsets of 2017. Lots of wishful thinking went on in 2017 for me but i’ll try to make the most of this year (hopefully) and not spend it dreaming like last year.

Welcome to a new week and a new day 😀

Any plans for #PINKWEEK? I know you are wondering what that is but this is the dreaded week before valentine, when everywhere is a daze of adverts and bows of RED.
So lets start this week in tones of Pink and this very beautiful flower (Pink Bougainvillea) that grows at home is the muse for the week.

Have a lovely week ahead ❤

Natural Monday: Water Hyacinth Flower

Hallo 🙂 and a wonderful Monday to you. It’s a new week, new deadlines and the whole nine yards.
Sooooooo, let’s dig right into the shots of the day. Today for my Natural Monday Focus it’s the humble yet annoying Water Hyacinth. In Lagos, the Water Hyacinth isn’t liked cause of its rapid breeding along the water ways which clog up water edges and hold refuse and dirt. It also gives the water surface a patchy look which is very ugly *blehhh*.

Here comes the only nice part of this plant, its flower. This lovely and delicate (It’s really fragile and bruises easily) flower with its lilac to blue-purple petals is in my opinion the only reason i tolerate this messy water plant. Blotting out the mass of green leaves and looking only at the flower, the colours are cool and soothing and a great subject to start a new week/ new month.

*Oh yes the Month of Love is around the corner, time to get the baff bag ready for the fluorescent pinks and red soon to take over* LOL

How are you spending your Monday? and whats planned for the RED Month 🙂

Natural Monday: Yellow Rose

The last Monday of November and i’m a little nostalgic already, I’ve been wanting to post these but no suitable quote. This quote seems perfect for a nostalgic me and a dying rose.
Have a great week ahead 🙂 .

WPC: Tiny Beauties

Beauty comes in all sizes and shapes, cause you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Sometimes its nice to look a bit closer to the ground and appreciated the smaller things that are just out of sight.
This week I peeked closer at the millions of wispy wild flowers that make fields. they may be tiny but oh they are pretty 🙂 in their own fleeting way.
