Travel Theme (Pink)

The theme choice pink couldn’t be more perfect for Mrs Carmichael this week. Having just returned from the Marrakech medina, she is currently pickled pink.

Weekly Photo Challenge (Inside)

I have been absent for a few weeks because I’ve been locked up, incarcerated, left inside desperate and, save for another headless mannequin (who I don’t even like) alone in an empty shop in Broadstairs.

I managed to get this snap in reflected image as a shaft of sunlight hit the curry house window opposite.

Weekly Photo Challenge (Treasure)

Every, every morning I treasure my coffee time. The process includes grinding Columbian beans, brewing the liquid gold in my Bialetti and sipping two or three cups, black, from a Lucie Rie masterpiece.

*The dark Lindt chilli chocolate is obviously treasured but not an every day indulgence.

**Coffee, cup, beans and cocoa posing on my marble topped Saarinen table – perfection.

Travel Themes (Yellow)

Ailsa’s (Where’s my backpack?) chosen a colour this week which Mrs Carmichael always enjoys so I think a collage is called for.

Weekly Photo Challenge (Selfie)

Well, this is a difficult one for me as I’m positioned by others and never with a self serving camera. Yet. So I’m taking the liberty of posting a daughter’s selfie and allowing myself to do this because she took it on my camera.

Please don’t tell her I’ve posted this.

Weekly Photo Challenge (Family)

With people posting such wonderful and heartwarming images of relatives, critters and connections I thought I should post a photo of mannequins who’ve moved to the darker side.

Frightening in the extreme I assure you there two are not related by blood to Yours Truly. This brother and sister combo can stay put in Taihape’s main street where I came across them on a recent road trip.
