Transition in Pink

Someone asked me today why I have pink hair (yes I have pink hair). It was a more difficult question than I thought. Why DO I have pink hair? I was born with fairly average light brown hair. I have had some form of blonde in my hair for about ten years now and I really enjoy it, I think it suits me. I don’t even remember when we started pinking it up, and I can’t really fathom not having some pink anymore. It used to be just a large sliceΒ of pink at the front but now, it’s all over pink. And today, freshly coloured, it’s full on pinky pinkness and I think this new colour is my favourite so far. I have the best hairdresser πŸ˜€

So why do I have pink hair? Because I can. Because it’s fun. And because I love it. Seriously love it. (Pictures at the bottom of this post).

Anyway, the theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is Transition – showing something in the state of transition or undergoing change. Those of you who follow along with me know how much I love photographing flowers and this particular rose has been a wonderful subject. I used it and it’s two companions last week for Trio. I also have another post coming up which features this rose and a tutorial on how to get the stark white background that I love in macro photography.

I think this shot shows the beauty of the rose as it transitions into death. I hadn’t really paid much attention to flowers after I finish photographing them, but I recently captured a hibiscus after it had died and it’s one of my favourite shots.

Wishing you a very happy weekend.

    I love your pink hair Desleyjane! I had a streak of purple in mine for a while a couple of years ago, right in the front. It was fun! Perhaps I’ll revisit that πŸ™‚

    I think you explained transition perfectly with your hair colour! Perhaps it is time for me to have a ‘blue rinse’ πŸ˜‰

      LOL thanks Jude. We often joke about how people won’t know when I’m going grey because it will already have a pink rinse. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    The rose is gorgeous! I love your transition from the perfectly focused centre to the more blurry edges of the petals too, just beautiful! And I love the pink hair, very cool! πŸ™‚

    Great shot of the rose; and you are rockin’ pink hair. I’m thinking of indigo before I’m so old it just looks like a blue rinse. πŸ™‚
