It’s the last Urban Jungle Bloggers challenge before Igor and Judith take a well-deserved summer break, and it’s a fun one this month – pick one plant and place it in front of a coloured backdrop. I walked past our bedroom the other evening and spotted the gorgeous evening light on this Peperomia, and immediately grabbed my camera. I was snapping away when 5yo Ez wandered in, and wanted to know what I was up to. After explaining the challenge, she was quick to point out that if we wanted a colourful background, her bedroom wall is the brightest in the house, so really we should be taking my pictures in there. Who was I to argue?
I recently bought a calathea for her room, so we grabbed that and she struck a pose (or actually, a whole host of different poses) with the plant, demanding to inspect the shots every so often so that she could adjust accordingly!I reckon the shots Ez directed deliver on the ‘vibrant dash of colour’ brief way better than mine and she more than qualifies for her colour-lovers badge.
