Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

PSH - Red (& Old)



This week's theme is "RED" ... going by the current festive season, I'm sure there will be a few Santa suits on the blogs, but I opted for something different. This is a friend 'Sha' at her wedding not long before I moved from Auckland - my first Indian wedding, it was a wonderful cultural experience and this photo in no way does her stunning outfit justice! :)

My second choice for this week's theme is a scene from outside the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tsai Temple in Hong Kong ... I took this photo just because of all the red colour that was predominant :)

And lucky last, here's another archive theme - this one is "OLD" ... again I had a few choices for this theme, but I opted to use this one, which is one of my all-time favourite photos I've taken ... "keeping OLD traditions alive" - starting a fire in Fiji :)

Wow, what nice pictures ! The bride is just beautiful. I also were at an Indian wedding, my french girlfriend married an Indian. Her Sari too was absolutely gorgeous !
I didn't put Santas either, for the same reason as you !

That is a stunning dress and she looks so happy! Great shots! Mine is a Christmas theme of sorts, just not Santas.

These are great! Great picks for the hunt. She is truly lovely bride and I love that second one with all the red in the stalls and signs. The last one is terrific.
