a photo a week challenge – shades of pink

“Pink colors my world red!” 
Anthony T.Hincks

“When life gives you lemons. . .
You might as well shove ’em where the sun don’t shine
because you sure as hell aren’t ever
going to see any lemonade.”
Rob Thurman

My favourite pink lemonade bought on a bottle that I first meet at Bill’s in Lewes, UK – Lorina Sparkling Pink Citrus Lemonade Prestige – at times am I able to buy at Netto here in Landskrona. (January 2015)

“A lion doesn’t concern itself with the opinion of sheep.” 
George R.R. Martin

Some leftovers from “art in motion” at Wanås Castle, Southern Sweden – In “If the People have No Bread Let Them Eat Cake”, by Henrik Plenge Jakobsen, living pink sheep were the sculptures.  (July 2017)

“From the same window, you keep seeing the same view!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Just one of  the many beautiful windows that I passed in Marrakesh (December 2016)

“Think pink. But don’t wear it.”
Karl Lagerfeld

The event of all events – Carnaval de Nice (the Bataille de Fleurs/ Flower Parade) – this proves that everything suits a beauty. (February 2019)

“Nuclear war is the final genocide.”
Daisy Schjelderu

Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park with the Atomic Bomb Dome in the background, originally the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall. The only building standing after the morning of  6 August 1945. Over 70,000 people were killed instantly, and another 70,000 suffered fatal injuries from the radiation. (April 2015).

For cloud, I’m using Hibari Misora’s 1974 ballad “Ippon no Enpitsu” (“One Pencil”). “One Pencil” focuses on one woman’s final moments as the Aug. 6 bombing happens. The music was written by composer Masaru Sato, who often scored films. The lyrics to “One Pencil” were written by filmmaker Zenzo Matsuyama in 1974 and they detail the thoughts one woman has before dying. She wants to leave a message to a lover, but she doesn’t have the means to do so:

“If I had a pencil,
I’d write of my love for you.
If I had a pencil,
I’d write that I don’t want war.
If I had a piece of paper,
I’d write how I wish I’d had kids.
If I had a piece of paper,
I’d write that I want you back.”
