So I’ve finally gotten around to creating some header images to liven up the place.
Some flowers I bought last Wednesday to celebrate one week of not smoking. I edited the photo quite heavily in GIMP to get the vibrancy of the colours, because apparently my camera hates vibrant colours and makes everything look washed out. The flowers are really that beautiful shade of orange/red. Although of course a lot depends on your monitor as well.
Picture I took some time ago, cracked safety glass. You can’t really see it here but when it’s in the header, you can see small colour refractions especially on the right hand side. Plus I like the spidery pattern.
Spices! Well, I love to cook, especially Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. I really like the textures and colours in this picture, I wish you could also smell it!
A close-up of my bookshelves, one of many many bookshelves. I have a bit of a book problem. But who cares. These are pretty close in height and all paperbacks and I loved the progression of colours so that was a nice shot to take.
A close-up of my window sill. I have some vases and things standing in my window sill because I read somewhere that women are supposed to collect knick-knacks and put them in random spots to “make the space more personal”. So I’ve been experimenting with that. It seems to reassure visitors and I like the colours but it is a bit of a mess. The hands belong to a very pretty wooden statue from the 40s or 50s that I inherited from my grandmother. The number of times I’ve knocked that statue down and broken its neck… Clumsy, me?
I think the books and the window sill are my favourites because. Well. Rainbows. I really am helpless when it comes to rainbows. That’s why the gay pride flag is so awesome. And why autistic pride day is so awesome.
