April's Pictures.

Here's a mosaic of all of my Pink April pictures.

Phew, here's the last of my pink April pictures.  Definitely the toughest month so far.  I think that May will be.......white!

It was the end of a beautiful day, the Royal Wedding day and we'd finished a roast lamb supper and the sky rather conveniently turned a wonderful array of pinks.  Oddly enough, this is the only pink sky photo I've taken this month.

Shot from Patisserie Valerie in Manchester, through the window while I was having lunch.  It's small and it's pink!

A very rare thing a photograph of me!  In the mirror wearing my only item of pink clothing.  
I shall be very glad to see the end of this month of pink photos!

Today's picture is of our rather decadent fishy supper of king prawns, salmon and dressed crab.  Hurrah for pink food!

I spotted this little scene as we walked down Burton Road with a friend for an impromptu evening out. Aas the weather was so nice we had drinks in the pub garden until it suddenly got really cold and then we moved inside and had some supper.

Apr12.102/365 to Apr15.105/365

I was away working in Holland from the 12th to 15th so here are the pink pictures I amazingly managed to take in perhaps the least pink place I've ever spent time in!

Apr12.102/365


Desperate measures here!  This was the rather conveniently positioned pink tea-light holder on the bar where we downed several large drinks to help us get over the first day of very intense work.

Apr13.103/365


I was almost run over by a cluster of mopeds as I took this shot.  I was aiming for the cliche of the cherry blossom tree when a tram zoomed past.  This shot was far more interesting than another blossom picture.
Apr14.104/365


The was the rather bizarre decor in the bar of the Grand Winston Hotel where we were staying.  It's certainly pink, but during the evening the colour ways changed quite dramatically ending on a scary blue and green design.  Very nice after a couple of large G&Ts!

Apr15.105/365

This was on the last day of our Holland trip and was taken from the top floor of the office where we took our precious photographs and interviews to be backed up to the office network.  This fabulous building was opposite - it looked empty to me.  I loved the colours and the lines.  The pink is the vertical which stands out so well against the green and yellow.

We were at The Lowry theatre this evening and amidst the array of bright colours was plenty of pink.  Shame about the low light though.....

How pink is this!  Summer pudding with a glass of pink plonk from a fab barbecue on the terrace in perfect weather on Sunday.  It's 100th picture of the project - not bad at all!

The sign outside a cafe on Burton Road which we walked past on the way to meet friends on Saturday night.  I was running out of pink options and was very glad to see this familiar sight.  I've previously written about Love 2 Eat here and here.

I spotted these rather sad memories of a 60th birthday party high in the wires while out for a bike ride.

This is the little scene to the right of my computer, my old Rolleicord which is currently being an easel for an experimental fake Polaroid print of a beautiful pink begonia.

The salmon constituent of the Mother's Day lunch I prepared today, you can see the rest of it on my other blog.

It was a beautiful day on Saturday and we had a hurried but delicious lunch on the terrace in the lovely sunshine on Saturday.  Note the newspaper tablecloth - only the best!
