Fifty shades of purple

I just tried to “channel” purple and violet, and these are some of the images which came to my mind. Actually, I haven’t found  a photo of the most common purple orchid that is sold by the kilo. Need to make up for this sometime soon. It’s interesting how usually the most often seen sights are overlooked and end up unphotographed.

This was the missing post from last Saturday. Purple is supposed to be my colour because  I was born on a Saturday, but I have never actually taken to it, although I used to wear a lot of purple in Yangon, somehow ended up with many purple sarongs and shirts. The dragonfly photo in the header was taken at Chiang Dao, I remember well because they also settled on my finger later on. Not sure why but it was a nice purple moment, too.
