Seven BnW Photos: Day 2 Flightless Bird


Bird of Paradise flower, taken near Imphal, Manipur, India. This is the first time I have seen it apart from pictures and it is mesmerizing!

I am participating in the Seven Days. Seven Black and White Photos of Your Life. No People. No Explanation. Challenge Someone New Each Day.

Today, I nominate Ray Colin of Me and Ray – I cannot wait to see his take on this!


Oh my ruby!
Oh my ruby!

A glistening pearly sheen

An amorous velveteen touch

Beckons a ruby blossom nestling

A flower isn’t jealous of other flowers – it simply blooms 🙂 Look what I found! Apparently called “cock’s comb”.

Bleeding Love


“I understand something about love. It’s not pink. It’s different reds bleeding into each other”

– Cath Crowley, Graffiti Moon

I am hooked to this book. It is a painting of words. Caught the flowers at work – anyone know what they are called?
