It looks more like a canvas than a red wall and some windows…
Nice capture, Tish 🙂
Thank you, Sreejith. Yes that stucco surface seems to radiate whatever pigment that is applied to it.
Suddenly I realize how very attractive it is to capture red! I think I will wear my red jacket tomorrow 🙂
A red jacket. Yay. Go for it!
I like that the windows are not vertically aligned. It makes it so much more vivid.
Yes, it all adds to the creative atmosphere. It’s not surprising that artist Raoul Dufy painted so many Nice pictures.
Haven’t been to Nice in years – feel a sudden longing looking at these gorgeous photos! Think I need to find something red to wear tomorrow too! Loving your work Tish…
Thank you, Selma. I think you should definitely find something red to wear.
I love the vibrancy of the colours.
Makes you want to skip around, doesn’t it 🙂
What a lovely post. A good weekend to you, Tish.
And the same to you, Stephen. It’s interesting how all that red raises the spirits.
No. It was the way it was displayed.
Well, thank you.
A very impressive stack of sun dried tomatoes, bet they taste good. A great set Tish.
They do look, yummy don’t they? I love French markets.
I like it when people go for strong colours on their facades. In Nairobi and most of Kenya, houses were either painted white or cream, now things are changing and people are becoming brave and I so like it.
Yes, it lifts the spirits, doesn’t it. Nairobi facades were rather dull, now you mention it, Noel. Lots of ghastly colonial architecture too.
The architectural landscape has been changing. Not all buildings are drab and dull.
That’s good to hear.
Changed your theme, I see?.
Much easier to read the comments, ( good for me: saves me having to squint!) but where are all the links etc?
The darker background for the photos and the text was nice on the old theme, though – one of the few white on black themes I actually like!
I love the colour on this post. Red really zaps you between the yes, doesn’t it? 🙂
I have been meaning to ask, do you have an editor/proofreader for you work or do you cope yourself?
There are also a few questions i would like to ask re: Amazon etc. May I email you?
Hello Ark. Well, the theme change was a bit of an accident. I was fiddling. In the past you could try out a theme without it going live. But now it seems to publish straight off. And I couldn’t find my old theme. So then there was a lot more fiddling about. And panic. And swearing. However, I like the grey, and I like having bigger photos. The links are there but you need to press on the square 3-line icon on the top right of the page and the links part opens out. I’m not sure that hiding them is an advantage but it comes with the theme.
No, I don’t have an editor/proofreader.
And please do email me re Amazon or anything. You have my address don’t you?
Er…I am thick as two short planks when it comes to internet stuff. I don’t see your email?
If you could shoot me an email at email@example.com I shall contact you?
Sorry for being a twit! 🙂
Oh Tish, the photos are startling. And I love your new blog look. 🙂 Much clearer and bright!
Thank you, Celestine. I thought it was time for a change. I feel as if I opened the window and let in some space! Now are you working on any of those stories (nag, nag). I want to read them for one thing. No pressure!!!
These are gorgeous, Tish! I do like a nice splash of colour 🙂
