Thematic Photographic: Softness

Carmi's theme this week is softness.. go here.

What do I like that's soft?

The feel of a baby's head -



Cats, of course -

Sophie loves the sheepskin rug

and the long leaves of this plant


Sophie's predecessor, Witten


Soft rain on the petals of a flower -


 
And the soft light of dusk, my favourite time of day -

  2. Those are all great, Alexia.

    Petting the baby...Sophie in the grass...

    P.S. I wonder what Sophie's choice is, between the grass and the rug?

  4. Better late than never Alexia with soft shots like these. Sophie's Choice - there must be a book or film in that.

    1. Thank you Bob. I think you're right - although I must confess to never having read or seen it.

  5. Oh, those are beautiful, Alexia! I love the two cat shots - especially the long grassy plant! And the baby's head, so soft and vulnerable!

    1. Thank you Gilly! I always feel that I burn my palm slightly when I cup a baby's head - in a nice way, of course. :)

  6. That's one cute picture, the first one with the baby. And Sophie looks quite comfy in both her inside and outside "blankets".
