blanc








I have become very lazy about taking pictures and there was a danger that I would return home with an empty camera so I set out with the objective of adding to my Pinterest boards. Here are the pale tones of white, ivory and cream to contrast with the vivid Provençal landscape.
 
It has been fun organising my holiday photos by colour although I suspect that unless I add titles soon the memories will vanish just like those sepia photographs of anonymous faces. I have always admired people who organise their photos into albums because my printed photos remain in a drawer, still in their paper envelopes, waiting for an unspecified time when I will sort them out. In contrast, my digital photos are all here in a virtual album with dates, names and places. It is an important source of family information - which is why I started writing in 2007 - and I mustn't lose sight of that.

  3. I've just inherited all the family photos and feel overwhelmed by the task of sorting them out - especially now there's no-one to ask about the people I don't recognise. I have about 20 times as many in digital form but at least they are labelled. The Swallowtail is so beautiful, and I love the dreamy interior - shady on a hot day.

  4. Beautiful photos, that hydrangea is just exquisite. I know what you mean about sorting pictures out, it can be quite overwhelming can't it. I love the idea of showing them by colour, it's very effective. CJ xx

  6. Another set of beautiful photos. I love sorting my photos into different albums on the computer. Sometimes, after a big holiday, I get them organised into a photo book and each year I do Mum a calendar of photos of my daughter and one for our kitchen showing photos from our year. It is just one of the things I like to do!
