Wednesday Special 01

Today is Wednesday and seems like a perfect day - the middle of the week, to post something special. Something that is out of the routine, featuring photos of my interest, could be food related or something else.

This is all due to my decision to learn and practice more photography in the scope of food, still life and lifestyle. Haven’t done much enough and therefore, I have been restless and constantly triggered to make use of every second that I have to shoot something new. Have accumulated a number of photo shots and thought of sharing them with you.... on every Wednesday.

And that is how the “Wednesday Special” came about. So to all of you, my friends..... I hope you enjoy what you see and your criticism is mostly welcome!

Meanwhile, I like to thank Tanja of Tanja's Cupcakes who recently passed the Sunshine award to me. It has been a great pleasure and really a sunshine of my day. Thanks for considering me, Tanja :-)

And these are the 12 blogger friends I like to share the Sunshine with…
- Fitri of Mommy Nisa
- Sue Sparks of Munchkin Munchies
- Mandy of What The Fruitcake?
- Simone of Junglefrog Cooking
- Vicky of Sweets at Vicky’s
- Deeba of Passionate About Baking
- Anita of Leave Room for Dessert
- Barbara of Movable Feasts
- Valerie of The Chocolate Bunny
- Jennifer of Maple and Cornbread
- Katie of Something Sweet
- Wolf of Wolf’s Den


  1. Your shots are fantastic and I love the new banner! So fresh and pretty!

    Congrats on the award



  2. Oh No..!! you have purple wall ? I'm jealous!! That is beautiful color, and I never know that red can come together with purple..what a nice combination. *sstt.. I love the second picture better :D - or may be because the red bottle attract me much hahahah..

    Thank you for sharing your badge with me. I will put on my blog soon. Keep practice Kris..

    Have a nice spring..

  3. oh yay! now i have something to look forward to on wednesdays :D I love the color pairing of lavender and orange-red! Never thought of combining those 2 colors together but you definitely made it work. The flowers are beautiful as well.

  4. Congrats on the award Kris... you so deserve it. And thanks for including me in your list of these wonderful bloggers - *BLUSH*... you made me feel so HAPPY! Thanks for the sunshine!
    You are a very talented photographer and am glad you chose to share these pictures. They are beautiful! {HUGS}

  5. Hi Kris, hope you had a great Wednesday. I certainly did and am so looking forward to the weekend. I too have told myself to do more photography other than food. So me and my other half are planning weekend outings to do so. Take photos of nature, some architecture and of course people. Have a great rest of the week!

  6. Congrats on the award! Purple is my favorite color and always reminds me of springtime violets--your photos really convey that spring feel!

  7. Thank you Kris! I love awards! I have that one, but will add your name to it with a link to your site!

    Your post today was timely. Another blogger was complaining about people using her photos and talked about watermarks. Now mine are not really the quality of yours (or hers) and I am NOT a photographer so I have really not been very fussy about my photos. But it made me think twice so I have been fiddling with watermarks today. I love your script so think I will go in that direction. It is much easier to photoshop out a watermark in arial than a thin script.
    Anyway, I adore your photos today!

  8. Kris,
    Thanks for passing the "Sunshine award" on to me! It's especially an honor coming from you, my friend! A great way to start my day:)

    Your photography is BEAUTIFUL(no criticism here)! I love the contrast of the bright red/orange against the lavender and white-stunning and tranquil at the same time. Love the new header too!

    Warm regards,

  9. Beautiful photography and congratulations on your award.

  10. Aww, thank you so much for the award! I could certainly use a little sunshine! I really appreciate the gesture!

    And I do love your photographs! I look forward to seeing more of them every Wednesday. (And I won't criticize, because my photo knowledge is definitely not high enough)

  11. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos. Congratulation on your award.

  12. Love the idea of your Wed Spec!!!- as I like your style of photography a lot. I think that if you're good in something - share it! It may also inspire another person :)

    Cheers from sunny(!) Ireland.

    P.S. Really LOVE the little CAT figure - I'm a total cat freak ;P

  13. Stunning photos! I'd be proud to take a photo half as pretty as the ones you have shared here.

  14. Wow! I don't know what to say...Thank you for sharing "Sunshine Award" with me, Kris. And also I am inspired by your beautiful baking works and photos alot. Thank you again, talented Kris!!!

  15. If there's one person who can capture the wonder a roll of ribbon can bring, it's you Kris!

    I don't think I've seen flowers and ribbon look this good together, in a manner that's not contrived, and natural! I think Bangkok definitely looks alot more gorgeous through your eyes, :)

    And thanks for sharing the Sunshine!

  16. Thanks so much for sharing the award with me Kris! I am doing a "sunny" dance now... :) Great idea to share those special photos with us every wednesday! I am already looking forward to the next session! It looks gorgeous!

  17. Congratulations on you well-deserved award. Your photos are wonderful and trumped only by the food your prepare. I'm relatively new to your blog, but will be back often to see what you have conjured up.

  18. So Lovely! I love all your photography - everything you own is so nice! Thanks so much for sharing Sunshine with me :) I know your page always fills with with sunshine and happiness. I just wish I could get home with a bit more sunshine - it would definitely help with my photography... that and maybe getting a DSLR soon... fingers crossed.

  19. Beautiful photos! A Wednesday special is a fabulous idea. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    Have a nice weekend!


  20. I'm looking forward to each Wednesday! I especially love the first pic in this post, the contrast of the strong reds againt the white & purple with the darkness coming in the background is just beautiful and eye-catching :)
    Thanks so much for sharing some sunshine with me :D I need it here in Ireland ;)
