Color and Cheek

Aloha
it's
Saturday in
Waikiki.

Welcome Friend



click the photos,
and click your heels together while repeating:
"There's no place like the blogosphere."
At the end of the rainbow. . .



"Mere color, unspoiled by meaning,
and unallied with definite form,
can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways."
Oscar Wilde



colorful creatures celebrate the simple fact of life. . .


"Of all God's gifts to the sighted man,
color is holiest,
the most divine,
the most solemn."
Ruskin




One week ago today.


"I'm not funny.
What I am is brave."
Lucille Ball


Thank YOU for visiting today;

ALOHA,

Most people seem to look for the end of the rainbow, I want to see the spot where it starts.

The rainbow and parrots are just lovely! I'm so glad that psunami didn't materialise. x

My husband and I honeymooned on Waikiki beach and our postcard home is a photo of the two of us with two beautiful amazon parrots on our shoulders...

Beautiful Island you live on, lucky you. :-)

A small blessing that it was to arrive at 11 a.m. and not 2 a.m. and a great blessing that it wasn't a terrible tragedy of water. Happy you are now seeing rainbows.

What great photos and love your header too. Hard to believe that the world holds my part of Wales and your island.

Aloha!
Was bloghopping and stumbled upon your blog through Wenn's 'Experiences'. You've got such an awesome blog here. I could just dive into your pictures seeing how gorgeous they are!! Nothing beats a beautiful rainbow, always warms my heart.
Come and visit me sometime.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend so far XXX

Thank you for this amazing photography of yours, years since last i saw a rainbow with me own eyes.

If one is high enough, without a horizon at all, it might even be possible to see it as a closed ring, until that will be possible for me, it's nice to come into this spiral of colourful joy.
A wonderful Sunday for you.

Thanks for the rainbow, my friend!

There is sunshine and 50's weather in western massachusetts today!

I was so worried last week...and am so glad it ended up being a non-event (well, in Hawaii, anyway.)

Your lens on the world continues to inspire. The reflective water shot is unbelievably perfect.

Cloudia said...

thank YOU

Beautiful shots. What a tense time, though. The parrot is a beauty.
