This week, Ailsa @ wheresmybackpack challenged bloggers to contrast the weekly photo challenge color with a post about all things pale.  I’m not much into pale, except maybe beautiful, milky, white skin, which I don’t have 😦  but this turned out to be the most fun.  Below are a few of my pallid choices. Take heed of President Lincoln’s quote on the last shot.  Words to live by – or at least words to give some thought to.

  1. I use that rose/thorn quote and variations on it from time to time, but I never knew Abraham Lincoln said it. Thanks for teaching me something. And I really liked “paled with age”. Lol.

  2. Pretty shot of the Aqualegia (I think!), and how did you do that quirky trees over flower one? I thought it was cherry blossom till I saw it up close. You clever person, Gem!

    • Thanks, Jo. The overlay is from an app called PicShop. I used two of my own pix and used the edit and image layer option. If you do it, email me your shot. Or post it. I’d love to see it. 😉

  3. Lincoln killed it with that quote. He was pretty smart. I’m 2 thumbs up on his pale saying. Cupcake is 2 paws up on the Canada geese. She eats the poop. Ugh. Now I’ve turned myself pale. *gulp*

  4. That is so Lincoln. He had a number of those circular, dichotomic axioms like:

    “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

    I think that’s his most famous saying.
