Between you and me the first mosaic is probably my favourite of 2015. I say that quietly because I’m not one to openly admit to liking my work. I guess each photograph is part of the journey, and I’m always excited about the photographs I’m yet to take.
May was quick. It was also cold and windy. I’ve started to embrace the grey skies, and enjoy the lack of colour. After all there’s a lot of colour to be found in grey, if you look hard enough. And besides it seems a shame to focus on what’s missing, rather than simply enjoying what’s already there.
Anyway, I’m celebrating. It was seven years ago today that I upload my first photograph to Flickr under the name of Candy Pop. So, Happy 7th Birthday Candy Pop!
I hope you’re having a wonderfully colourful June, and I’ll see you over on Instagram. Have a lovely weekend.
