Images & Words #13 - RED

Hi Dear Images & Words Friends,

 Welcome back for another week at Images &Words.

 Mia here, saying hello from a wintry New Zealand. Well the Hibiscuses are still in bloom, so no snow etc where I live, but I felt a little RED would perhaps liven up our week. Here is a photo I took of a bloom in my garden and also I wrote a Haiku for it. Hope you enjoy...



Dream Bloom

So the theme is RED, hope it will give you some inspiration
.

Rules of the site:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography. Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words. Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene.

Posts can either have one word on them, quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.
New topics will be posted on Sundays. Posts can be made through Saturday.
One post per person only please.

Please remember to post a decent sized picture and if the words aren't easy to read, just type them underneath your photo.

 Drop your links here in the comment section please and also when you visit someone else's entry.

Have fun, and I'm looking forward to visiting you all as usual!

Blessings

Mia

  12. Thanks Sue, I used an editing method called "Dreamscape" where you layer and use Gaussian blur and ligth and dark levels to give just that glowing softness.
