Explosions of Color

When Marcel Christ combined the mediums of pastel chalks and photography, it resulted in true work of arts. The artist describes playing with the chalk as an experiment that he responded to with still photographs. These images are full of life and have an explosive like quality to them that have captured our eye and our love for all things colorful.

I discovered this series of chalk explosions by the photographer Marcel Christ recently and fell in love. Aren't they elegant? To see more of Marcels work visit his site here.

Beautiful Blooms

You know what I love about geraniums? You can't kill them. Like...seriously. I don't even remember planting these which means they have been in that pot for several years which ALSO means they have survived several hard freezes (believe it or not, we get those sometimes in the Bay Area). I forget to water them. Summers can get nasty hot. And yet they live. And they are so pretty and vibrant!

So thumbs up to these gorgeous blooms! They really deserve all of the credit. I just take the pictures :).
