Book Covers

Time for your weekly(ish) book covers 🙂

This beautiful photo of Katherine & Brad is by Something Blue

(this is my friend I customized the shoes for – she promises to send a photo soon!)





Green goodness

Mmmm, green.

Another photo by the same photographer – I really wish I knew who. Again, loving the colours and the textures. Look at the details in his eye – simply beautiful 🙂





Colour & texture

I hate spiders, can’t even look at a photo of one. I even embarrassed myself at the movies once by screaming at the giant spiders on Harry Potter – the 6 year old behind me was not impressed.

Its seems a bit strange to me then, that I like snakes. I find them intriguing and oddly beautiful. So when my partner show me these photos (thinking to scare me) all I could say is “Wow! The colours, the textures…” Apologies as I don’t know where he got them from, if you know I will add the link.
