  1. Angelina looks like she's peeking out through a window. You sure have some unusual looking plants. Is that a sugar apple?

  2. These are some of the prettiest plants yet. That Angelina is a sweetheart! Hugs to you both and have a nice weekend.

  3. That berry like thing made me stare for many minutes - still don't know what is coming out of it - a seed, a flower, a bug... Playful light all through the pics - wish my silhouette was so graceful as that of the fairy weed :)

  4. no - i won't, as life, as you show it, is much too alluring to give in.

  7. Prospero, that sugar apple was my father's favourite fruit. I like it too. It has lots of seeds. When riped/soft the pulp taste sweet and creamy (delicious!). Over here, in the villages, many homes used to have one or two trees. Nowadays, hardly seen. Nice photos as always. Have a great weekend!

  8. I love the lighting in these pictures. The third one just feels so peaceful, the coloring is so pretty.
    The picture of Angelina is so sweet! It's become Gracie's habit to run up and share the chair with me while I read blogs, that's about the only time she surrenders to me and doesn't want to be the boss :)

  9. Looks like succulents and grasses. Love all the different colors and textures going on here.
    Very interesting garden. Like the pink accentuation. The plant last looks like a jade plant. Wonderful photo!


    kisses!

  12. I like very much the flower: the third - very delicate with soft light - and the fifth - so vibrant and full of life - are wonderful for me!

  15. Hi Prospero, they are all lovely images and the lighting is so nice. I love the soft focus of Angelina, also the way she is just out of the frame, nice shot.

  16. Whoa! I liked the first title very much...but then, no more titles! Great photos but I always like your take on them!

  17. hello Prospero..
    j'espère que vous allez bien...excusez moi pour mon dernier message ou je me suis permise de vous tutoyer...j'ai été confuse après...l'habitude du monde blog..:)
    pourquoi ce titre ...en anglais ça veut dire reddition abandon se rendre...
    je suis curieuse mais je ne comprend pas le lien...
    avec vos très fines presque transparentes photos....
    comme j'aime votre façon de photographier...simple élégant voilé discret esthétique...un regard très personnel...
    merci....:)
    beaucoup de grâce dans cette série...
    a bientot ..bon dimanche..:)

  18. Bonne journée, Clo, J'espère qu'on puissent se tutoyer. Le "vous" est une politesse qui s'applique guère à des amis dans le monde virtuel d'aujourd'hui. C'est un brave nouveau monde.

    Le sens de "se rendre" est assez ambigu, et c'est de cette facon que le titre a été conçu. On peut se rendre à la beauté de la nature, par example. En anglais, tout au moins, surrender peut être pris du sens imperatif, comme commander à mes lecteur de se rendre à mes images. Aussi bien, cela peut signifier que je me rends à mes lecteurs.

    Clo. j'apprécie bien nos conversations en français. Je n'ai pas souvent la chance de me débrouiller en français. Et de même que mon ecriture n'est pas à ton niveau, j'aime bien participer avec toi, tant que je peux, et aborder des sujets difficiles.

    À bientôt j'espère.

  19. coucou ..merci...
    je suis donc très contente de pouvoir te tutoyer...même virtuels les mots ont un sens et une profondeur...le tutoiement est plus fraternel...et il rapproche..:)
    tu écris le français parfaitement et même subtilement très bien...j'aime beaucoup ma langue natale écrite et parlée par des gens d'ailleurs...ça a un charme indéfinissable...:)ton écriture est donc tout a fait de mon niveau...
    nous nous comprenons et ce n'est pas grâce a moi...c'est toi qui fait tout le travail...je t'en remercie ...:)...
    mon blog a une adresse mail...en haut a droite...ce serait un plaisir de converser avec toi plus longtemps...byebye Prospero... bonne fin de journée..:)

  20. The fourth Photo will have caption something like this... "I will surrender nothing, not even a whisker!!"

  21. Your photos are always so evocative, and speak to one's soul. Beautiful as always. And I adore the one of Angelina, the softness and muted quality.

  22. I agree with Oz Girl about your photos...I don't think I recognize the blooms. They're all so pretty!

  25. For once your title went past me, but that doesn't matter. I enjoyed the photos anyhow.

  26. Hi there! Thank you for stopping by my blog! I came up with the name just because I was very "blue" from not spending as much time as I would like in beautiful Bermuda!! It is as simple as that! Your puppy and your flowers are just beautiful! Happy Monday!

  32. It was such a joy to stroll thru your photos. They are amazing and the little doggy is so cute..

  33. Beautiful photos. Took me a while to go thru them, they were that good.

    ReplyDelete
  34. How do you do it?! I never mind looking at your posts more than once because I always see something I missed the first time!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have seen lots of flowers lately and didn't know their names and thought if you were here you could have identified them and told something about them.

  36. Your pictures are just beautiful. But you better keep that beautiful animal hidden. I love dogs, flowers AND tomato's. My blog was so blah that you visited and I am sorry about that. I had a DR's app't and she said I was not getting enough sleep. When I read some of the blogs I started when I was groggy I can not believe how disjointed they are. I just wanted to explain that I am not always so disjointed. Thank you for visiting and please return any time. I can make sense. I will be a visitor here many times over.

  37. I could easily surrender to that beauty! All of these are, as usual, stunning.

  40. i absolutely adore this last image. you have such a way with light, Prospero, that light one can only see in the darkest of nights, on the verge of things.

    ReplyDelete
  41. ps. on n'a pas besoin d'un imperatif pour s'abandonner a tes images :-) (desolee pour les accents, je n'ecris pas sur mon clavier)
    how come you speak so well French?
