Thank you. I love all those new photos and personal icons of you, too.
The feeling is mutual. I'll keep you posted.
Thank you. When things calm down a bit, I'm planning on getting prints made of a bunch of my stuff. I can make one of this for you if you like.
how are you doing lovely miss?
Well, I just went to the gym. So right now, the answer is "sweaty." :-D
Your photography is, as ever, brilliant.
Also that little girl's outfit matches the roses. It's almost like she planned it. 'Oh, am going to a rose garden today, had better wear pink so I'll match.'
She was quite cute, and she knew it. Her guardian - looked and behaved more like an aunt than a mother - kept trying to get her to stand still so she could take a photo with a small point-and-shoot camera but she wouldn't stop squirming around and trying to run off. Heh.

i super dig on how the colour of her shirt balances out the roses at the bottom! dreamy sweet & if this was a photo of me when i was a wee lass i would be so happy someone took such a nicenice photo!
Her skirt almost matches the middle roses - peachy pink - and her white trainers, the roses at the top. Also, I have no idea who this little girl is. I raised my camera quickly when she turned her back and went, snap!
I love this.
Beautiful, simply beautiful.
Thank you. It was a quick snap, not a long-pondered composition, which for me is much more challenging, so I am extra-happy that it turned out.
Lovely. Full of the pretty.
During the summer months, Regents Park is full of two things: wonderful-smelling roses, and American tourists. :-P

This picture is right at the edge of feeling dreamlike. The soft gradients of the petals trick the eye in to wanting to think that areas of the picture have been slightly softened. Just beautiful...
It is slightly softened. The touching I did is slight but significant. In addition to the softening, a gradient filter brought out the shadows in the lower half of the picture and another photo filter warmed the colors a bit. Both of these were at less than 30% opacity but they make a difference.
Mmm ! That's gorgeous and classic.
Thank you. BTW, I loved those wood panel pieces you posted by that artist last week. They're very provocative and deceptively simple.
ooo, that is really lovely. the swoopy green vines really add to it as well. is that a white poofy tie in her hair that could also be a white rose? And the lighting is great. Love it when instinctive snaps work out so well.
It's a pale blue poofy tie in her hair, but I put a near-transparent filter over the image to warm the colors and that changed it to nearly white.
You were there when I took this, remember?
I love how her clothing almost matches the colour of the roses in opposite order. I don't think you could have planned the colours better if you tried.
Probably not. I don't know think I consciously registered that when I took the shot; I was focused on framing and exposure at the time.
i could happily jump in there and be that age again
Thanks for posting. It's such a lovely image of childhood and escape.
Thank you for saying so. That was the idea.
