Vivid Vibrancy!

Nature continued to, on Tuesday, burst with vivid vibrancy as the wonderful weather was around, the sun was shining with a breeze in the air to make the mood of Spring feel like home.

This photo moment proved that Mother Nature is no stranger to unleashing bursts of vibrant colours to the world.

How did your Tuesday go? Did Mother Nature unleash bursts of vibrant and vivid colours where you are?

Please tell me. I would love to hear your responses.

Nature’s Bliss!

To end the weekend on a high and positive note, this photo moment from yesterday, for me, was a positive and vibrant moment considering nature beamed with vibrant colours for the Royal Wedding Celebration, not to mention that she created a blissful atmosphere that was tranquil.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and please tell me how your weekend went.

I would love to hear your responses.

Blushing Pink!

What a beautiful and wonderful day it was.

It was quiet again at work today and I’ve been enjoying the wonderful weather, and as it’s set to get warmer over the next few days, I’ll be off on Monday so I’ll be making the most of the free time while it’s available.

Here’s a photo of one of the plants that were blushing pink in this wonderful, sunny Spring weather.

 

Was mother nature blushing pink for you today?

Please tell me. I would love to hear your response.

The Lush Life of Oxford Street!

Tuesday and Wednesday were wonderful days to visit Oxford Street, as the scenery was absolutely beautiful, and considering that it was nice and sunny, I seized the opportunity to photograph the landscape all of yesterday, but one of the stores that grabbed my interest the most was the Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Store. The smell of the store as I walked in hit me straight away and it was so welcoming, it smelt like Starburst as I walked into the store, and the fact it spanned three floors full of bath bombs, make-up and even skin care products that smelt so nice meant I was able to produce a really good set of photographs. They even provided me with a free sample of one of their products after they allowed me to dissolve one of their bath bombs in their sink and as a random act of kindness from one of their members of staff who was intrigued by the photos I showed them yesterday, they gave me a free bath bomb, which made my day so much happier.

The staff at Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Store are so friendly and so welcoming, and even the manager of the store is so friendly and welcoming and is a place I most certainly shall recommend to all of you as they have everything you need to offer. I’ll provide under this photo-set Lush’s social media accounts.

Below are the photographs I took yesterday of Oxford Street and the Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Store’s products.

What really ended my day on a perfect note was when I bumped into the Olympic Diver, Tom Daley, and the Oscar-Winning Actor, Dustin Lance Black, at Tottenham Court Station just as I was heading back to Oxford Circus Station to get the train home from Oxford Street. This is a rare photo moment for me to share with you all and it’s certainly a memorable photo moment for me. They’re both so down to earth and genuine and they’re so kind, and I was so starstruck last night that Tom took the selfie for me because I was completely surprised.

Yesterday ended on a perfect note and what a perfect and happy day it was.

Beautiful Abstraction.

Art and colour are full of beautiful abstracts, but it’s the abstraction of abstract art that makes art unique and interesting.

I love art because of the vibrancy it brings. I love art because it’s not about the details that make the art interesting, rather it’s the time and effort someone has taken to make that art piece a masterpiece.

Art is a beautiful abstraction in itself considering that it’s colourful, vibrant like technicolour, but like drops of paint on a canvas. Every colourful drop of paint on a canvas makes up the masterpiece that is produced.

I know, this is probably the craziest article you will have read, but I see art as a form of expression, not just as a drawing or painting. A beautiful abstraction in the world of art from my eyes is being able to express yourself artistically, whether it would be using a pencil or paintbrush, expressing your emotions, your creativity and your hard work and effort go a long way even if it takes time.

Art, to me, is a time-lapse of hard work. Art is a journey, but a time-lapse of hard work in the art world is the beginning of the artistic masterpiece which progresses to the conclusion of the finished masterpiece.

To rush art is a waste. To take all the time in the world to produce art in small leaps and bounds now and then can make that artwork that’s produced carefully with care and precision a true work of art and also as a true masterpiece.

A delayed masterpiece is a true work of art. A rushed masterpiece is a waste, but a delayed masterpiece is better than no masterpiece.

Art is inspiring and I hope that this inspired you.
