Paris is always a good idea.. Audrey Hepburn.....!


J'adore Audrey Hepburn (who doesn't oui!) I was very lucky yesterday to receive a beautiful bunch of roses from a special friend, they looked so wonderful beside my AH print that I felt compelled to take a shot of them and share. Then of course (being a Libra) I couldn't decide between colour, B&W or a wee bit of a fiddle, so what do you think, with the last image I added a little boost and a touch of posterising, looks quite good when enlarged! I hope the skies are blue wherever you are this weekend, be that figuratively or literally, bon weekend..... 

I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most,
to laugh.  It cures a multitude of ills.
It's probably the most important thing in a person.
Audrey Hepburn.....

  9. I like the contrast of the color against the black and white. Beautiful flowers!

    If you want a good chuckle...I suggest having a look at my blog today (at the risk of sounding overly solicitous)

  11. I agree with the others, the fist with color against the very striking line drawing would be my pick. Very nice.

  16. I love them all! (And Audrey Hepburn too). I adore the first one, but could see all three framed as a triptych of large prints, side by side, adorning some beautiful room. :)

  17. The first one, fore sure. Elegance in the foreground and background.

  18. Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favorite movie. I like the color version most.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I do that as well:) My two cents? The last two shots are beautiful. The black and white works well here. Oh Audrey....

  20. Very nice for you to have a special friend who sends roses!! And I'm a purist, picture #1 is great!

  21. I like the last shot though poor old Aud seems to be putting on a bit of weight. Roses are always a good idea too.

  30. She definitely had that "Je ne sais quois"

  31. It's not often I'd choose b&w over color but in this case, I think the b&w works best.

    Those of us who grew up with Audrey Hepburn sense that there are a number of things lacking among many of our youthful actresses today - like charisma, a sense of style, elegance and taste!

  32. Definitelythe B & W. lt goes perfectly with that little black dress she woreto such stunning effect.

  33. I love both! Beautaiful photos Grace. BTW my little brother just landed in Sydney yesterday. I'm jealous!

  34. What a wonderful bright bunch of flowers to receive Grace and all the images look fabulous. Not sure that I could choose between them. Enjoy a wonderful week.

  35. I think you, with an assist from your friend, have succeeded in making Audrey Hepburn more glamorous.

  36. In an article I read this morning, I learned her name originally was Edda Van Heemstra. As a young Jewish girl in Holland during WWII, she determined a way to fight the Nazis. She was a ballerina and danced to raise money for the Dutch resistance. I'm not sure how she got to the U.S., but she certainly did well as Audrey Hepburn, winning an Oscar, a Grammy, a Tony and an Emmy!
