I love silk and these colors are gorgeous.

Ah, to plop down in the house of a friend who offers such splendid cushions! :-)

Fabulous eye candy.

These colors frequently show up in my beadwork. They evoke a sense of exotic for me.

And hese very colors inspired a bracelet I designed several years ago. I never got a great shot of it and it left my possession quickly, but if click to enlarage the image and peek at the lowest edge of the bottom right corner, you can see it.

Thanks for the gorgeous photo! The texture and saturation are sumptuous. I'd love to see how else your friend used the colors in the lounge.

Beautiful colors. I like the angle created by the pillows on top of each other.

It never ceases to amaze me how ordinary everyday things can be transformed into a work of art by a good photographer. It also amazed me to find out how much of the world around me that I was missing before I started taking pictures.
Your website is always a treat for the eye and the mind.

These remind me of the vibrant colors of India!

Random shot? In a friend's lounge??

Is your camera surgically attached?

Oh yes. Stupid question. Of course it is. :)

Great shot though - I would never put pink and orange together, but it works here!
