Inspired by Fandango’s Friday Flashback: July 17
Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember? Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year….Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year?
…a flashback post down memory lane…a welcome respite.
(also coinciding with today’s citysonnet photo a day challenge: Watermelon Pink)
The following post was originally published on July 17, 2019
Shades of Pink
Nancy Merrill is hosting a photo challenge. The prompt this week: Shades Of Pink
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO FEATURING SHADES OF THE COLOR PINK.
When I was a kid, pink was never my first choice. For anything. At least that’s how I remember it. Old photographs rarely showed me in pink pants or shirts. Maybe a pink dress when I was too young to voice an opinion…although my opinion was often ignored.
I probably lucked out because my younger sister was the “girly” one (a term I now dislike, but those who remember the “old days” will know what I mean). She could have all the pink, as far as I was concerned.
The one exception may have been my first bicycle…which was pink. I am not sure if that was my choice…or the only color available at the time for a “girl’s bike.”
Anyway, pink pops up on Valentine’s Day and that’s when I photographed these shades of pink.
Wrapped up and ready for local Valentine shoppers.
