Royals - in the PINK
I'm feeling like a kid in a candy shop .. . .
well, perhaps a more accurate description would be
a kid with a new toy.
The new toy would be a little piece of softwear which lets me
put frames and mats on my photos or ( my fav!) vintage photos.
As with most new toys, I started out rather timidly ... . . just
adding subtle colors and details to some of those wonderful
vintage postcards. Last night I decided to have some fun with
this Very Formal / Very Staid portrait of the British Royal Family.
That little girl in the center would be Queen Elizabeth II.
I photographed this portrait in the gallery at Holyrood House Palace
in Edinburgh, Scotland a couple of years ago.
Perhaps my Royal Pink inspiration started out with this regal bed
draped and crowned in pink velvet.
Having read so much about Mary Queen of Scots and her
adventures while in residence here , I was anxious to see her
bedroom. As we strolled into this glorious confection I just
knew I'd found her own personal place in this ancient castle.
This was King James V bedroom !
Mary was a no nonsense kind of girl whose room was quite somber,
and downright masculine, in tones of grey / gold / green.
Hmmm .. . .. must do some reading about James V.
One must wonder what else he liked ... . .
