Last week was I out for dinner and I was wearing my one of my favorite dresses – my purple … I only have purple piece in my closet, and it’s a head turner just because of its color and I always wear it my red suede high heels plus my favorite Ebay silk scarf.
As I was getting ready I remembered that I had started a purple photo-mission before Christmas, totally forgotten about it.
It wasn’t much purple around so when I my last weekend with mum I looked for more purple, not much around then neither. So now I have put the two photo sessions together.
Got the idea for the purple when I was out shopping for mum and I saw some purple cabbage in a pot outside a shop. The shops all had their Christmas shop displays and there some purple in them.
In one of main streets shop a wonderful purple chair inside a shop – so I step in and said sorry, and took some shots – told them that I really liked the chair. They looked a bit fun on me, but I didn’t care.
Purple bikes is there quite a few around – and as I entered the train station in Landskrona last Friday – a purple child seat caught my eye and also one shop had a purple little plastic bag as saddle protection, the bag is from a pharmacy, Apoteket.
In Lund I decided to take the train instead of the yellow bus – and our trains are purple, even if they look a bit more bluish. A young man in a white and purple jacket on the opposite platform saved my day … and a couple minute a woman came and set down with wonderful purple scarfs around her head.
When I shopping for mum I found loads of purple orchids, a sign about Coop wishing me New Year and a roll of plastic table cloth with purple in the pattern. At mums my bed was made up with flowered bed linen with some purple flower in.
So when I was returning home on Tuesday afternoon I met Britta, a lady all dressed in purple, she sitting waiting for her taxi at the station in Simrishamn. A truly lovely lady and when I explained to her that I was on a “purple mission” and asked if I could take a photo of her – she was so pleased when I told her that she be the grand finale of my mission. She lives in Stockholm, but has a summer house outside Simrishamn, we had a good chat until her taxi and my purple train arrived. In the last minute I notice they had some purple timetable in the back of the reception, a shot in a rush.
I just manage to fulfill my mission as it was time to board the train – and my feature photo is from the doors as the closed behind me.
My purple days had come to an end.
The could over this post was yesterday Prince’s “Purple Rain” of course, but the setting has been changed during the last 24 hrs so I’m not able to post the link. So no Prince, but I found a good cover by Oliver Riosa, that I personal like – he has a softer voice than Prince, but still a very good cover. Hope you will enjoy it too.
