Scavenger Hunt Sunday

A bit of a mish-mash this week - partly due to lack of time and partly due to feeling a bit under-the-weather.  Shadows and Bright White are from the archives, the other three are from this week.

I could have used my Tennyson one again :O)
However, decided on this shot of an apple
on my worktop.

The stairs at work - I actually took this for The Daily Shoot:
Take a photo from an unusual angle.

Bright White...
Have to say I was pretty stuck for this one.
There's no snow, no ice, nothing here weather-wise that would help.
I resorted to a shot I took last October and played around with it.
All I could keep thinking of when I was processing this 
was the Dorothy Parker poem One Perfect Rose

 A single flow'r he sent me, since we met.
All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet -
One perfect rose.

I knew the language of the floweret;
'My fragile leaves', it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet
One perfect rose.

Why is it no one ever sent me yet
One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get
One perfect rose.

My coffee.  I was grasping at straws for this one!

Another one of Pepper on her blanket
from the same shoot as yesterday's.  A bit noisy
as I had it on a very high ISO but I like the colours.

Whoa, the photo of the stairs actually gave me a little vertigo! That's an amazing shot. And now that you've posted another photo of an apple to start off my morning blog rounds, can a serpent post from someone else be far behind? ;-)

That rose really does look perfect, and the poem is a perfect accompaniment to it!

And adorable Pepper. Is she looking at you from the corner of her eye in this one? :-) (I love the colors in it, too - and, of course, the sweet subject matter!)

Feel better soon!

Feeling dizzy, too! Woooooo!!!!!!!

Good ol' DP! And good ol' you! Lovely rose pic!

As for Pepper! I think the noise adds to the cosy feel, actually. I'm trying to read the expression in that eye. Is she indicating that all this attention (you with camera taking mug shots - sorry 'portraits'!) is her due, or is she getting p*ssed off? The jury's out on this one, I think...

I think strong works great for coffee and those stairs are very interesting!

Lots of good ones in here! Cute snuggly cat friend :) That's quite the shadow that little apple is casting! Cool shot with the steps, too!

The perspective on your pattern shot is amazing, and Pepper looks perfect in the warmth image:)

I have to agree that the commercialization of Valentine's Day is a bit weird. :) But just the same, I hope you are enjoying a very happy Valentine's Day!
