PINK


"Schoolgirl"

and its May


Mme Alfred Carriere

so my first thoughts were floral



Kazanluk


but I did find some other random pinknesses



East London, Shoreditch




Cosmos




lost in sarf london




Bougainvillia petals in Perpignon




Raspberries from my garden




South London - recycling for girlie stuff?




Hollyhock




random in so many ways....


....and the final pinkness is less random
and I shan't comment on it for fear of ranting, but there are a couple of interesting articles



First this one, reporting on a study widely reported as "proving" that there really is a female preference for pink

and secondly, an analysis and de-bunking of this study, or at least of the way it was reported and interpreted.....


You'll find more pink over at Theme Thursday

Ha spring has sprung! I wonder if those roses smell as beautiful as they look! Again, I love your 'found' objects. Camera's coming out today but I'm betting pink will be 'elusive'.

I have to say, I really love the flowers. Roses especially and pink is so beautiful on a flower.

Beauteous, Letty. From the roses to the building to the lost glove...all lovely. As usual. (I look at my David Austin catalogue before I go to sleep every night lately. Closest I'll get to having my own anytime soon. Sniff.)

Roses, beauteous roses - reminds me of a song I sang when I was a child.
Love the shoreditch photo. It looks very french!

Great photos! They fill me with happiness just looking at them. I especially love the East London building and the hot pink "Taste." Well done.

Wow! That "East London, Shoreditch" shot belongs on a museum or gallery wall. Great shot!

Dot-Com said...

That's a lot of pink! Too bad the paint was coming off that house.

A pink glove and a bottle of Beck's... hmm... looks like a crime scene.

Jaime said...

those flower pics are great. but it's the one of the glove and beer bottle that captured my attention most.

Jasmine said...

That picture from Shoreditch is wonderful isn't it? It reminds me of Eastern Europe. I have been sending out some of your made4aid graffiti cards recently. They are lovely. xJ

Lynne said...

Hah! I loved the Shoreditch photo from the first look. The paint peeling is part of the charm! So French! I love that look!! It's perfect just the way it is.

Cosmos is very cool too ... (just to name two)
