Red cotton and starry eye

I took this photo in Central, the bright red flowers are of cotton tree (literally red cotton in Chinese, aka hero tree) which blooms gloriously in spring and there are many of them around. Here's a beautiful shot by my friend and see a whole tree here.

In the background is a giant advertising billboard and it is the eye of a movie star looking at you. Guess who? :-)

I love this one. Very typical of the minimalism often hidden (and sometimes very much so) in oriental art.

The combination is "magnifique". I suggested a link to your yesterday picture and now I would do it again but I guess I have to give others a chance. Gosh, you are making it difficult for me to choose!

You have such a good eye! You choose your subjects very well! I really like it.

The Billboard looks like Sharon Stone.

Cynthia .. you are right. I first thought at Angelina Jolie, but it is S. Stone for sure. The flower really gorgeous one :)Interesting contrast between nature and commercials in the background.

Yes, Fotoaddict...

Hello and welcome Marcustpe

Thanks again for the link Carlos

Le grain de sel, merci est bienvenue...that's pretty much the French I have...

YES, it is Sharon Stone, link to another photo in today's post. And you know what, I keep thinking if I were just a few inches taller, I would get the red right on the black...and I was already standing on a bench.

Thank you all for liking this. :-)
