First, you have my skin, which can be real pink sometimes. And filled with goosebumps, remember this photo I posted once when it was the Photo Scavenger Hunt Cold?

A while after that I got the following email regarding that photo:

This is going to be the weirdest request, I know, but do you happen to have the high resolution photo of your goose bumps picture? Now I’ll explain – I am a texture artist in the computer games industry and in my job I use a lot of photo reference to mix together different textures. For years I have tried to find a good photo of a great case of goose pimple like yours with exactly the kind of lighting that appears in this photo. If you do and you dont mind contributing a copy, please email me. Thanks a bunch – Billy

I got a link to his page, which seemed to be genuine enough, with a lot of scary monster creatures in it. So he got the original photo from me. I thought it was kind of fun!

My goosebumps on a monster creature! *giggles*

Next pink photo is from Fuerteventura, one of the Canarian Islands in Spain. A whole famile dressed in pink. An English family I suspect, because 90 percentage of all the people we saw dressed in pink where English – we could hear it on their accents. Pink seem to be a very popular color in UK.

We couldn’t resist snapping some photos of them since they were so cute and lovable to each other. I wanna show you this because it breathe family and happiness together, which we don’t see enough of those days in the society generally. Where has it gone?

The last one is a photo I took in one of our B&B’s we stayed at during our Scotland trip in 2005. The pink wall is very unusual to us Swedes, I dare to say that you would have a hard time finding that kind of pink at any wall at any home here in Sweden.

I love to experience the culture differences by photographing them and have a look later again to revival the memories!

    I love that family photo, too. I’m glad the English are able to wear pink. Unlike Americans that attribute way too much meaning to it.

    I love the family photo too. So sweet!

    Good group of shots for pink. The goosebumps (I thought they were shoes), the idyllic family scene and the bed and breakfast were all good ideas. I’d have trouble not laughing out loud if I found myself in a pink room at a bed and breakfast. Have a pleasant weekend.

    Cool images! Especially the story on the goosebumps.

    Mine is called “Pink in Deadwood.” (It’s not a flower.)


    That is some goose bumps, Captain! At first I thought it was some fruits from Sweden! hahaha…. It looked like our local jackfruits although the skin is green.

    After looking at your goose bumps photo, I tried replicating it. I guess, there wasn’t anything scary enough to cause such awesome bumps on my skin. I didn’t succeed. i wonder how you did it! hahaha…. i spent some time analysising your goose bumps. Geez……

    I actually love the pink wall! As long as the whole room isn’t pink, I think the pink wall is a great accent and focal point for the room.

    Really neat pics for giving a feeling of being “in the pink.”
    The B&B wall though – normally I would say you probably wouldn’t find too many walls that color in the states either. However, there’s a wall about that color here in the village where I live and it’s my son’s living room wall! The kid, when he decided to paint his living room a couple months after he bought this old house here, he purchased paint that he thought -from the sample -would be sort of a “weathered” red color but once on the wall, it was much more of a pink. So much so that he came down to my house in the middle of his painting, showed me a splotch of it that had spilled on his jeans and asked it it didn’t look more like “pepto bismo” pink than the red he thought he was getting. And yes, it did! He’s since repainted it though – several times – and now, I can’t remember what color his living room is! Yes, I am getting senile – very, very senile!

    The family picture is like straight from a Hallmark movie. You described it perfectly. And my, the pink wall, it’s not also common in the Philippines to have a pink wall for the receiving area. Rooms of girls are generally pink though.

    Woooooo, our captain is a famous computer games actor – you are billion multy talented – no wonder with legs like yours ;-)
    What a great pink post and pictures!

    I do agree with you in the culture differences and not only in photo collecting, but also in blogsphere. I’ll give you all an example later on tonight when Tor and I are inviting to our Halloween Stop in Oslo – with a Viking twist *giggles*

    The goosebumps are awesome – is it from watching a horror flick or just from cold?

    A cool pink study (or study of pink) ;-)

    Somehow I missed that goosebump picture the first time around – that is AMAZING! I have NEVER seen a case of goosebumps like that before!!! WOW! You ARE the Goosebump QUEEN!

    The family in pink is cute. But that room? I’m thinking that color should be outlawed in wall paint!!! LOL! Just MY opinion… (and we know that doesn’t count!)

    Your goosebumps were the inspiration for my Urban Legend. Not for the weak, not work-safe, one of the most disturbing things I´ve ever seen… and I saw a lot of disturbing stuff in my life… *giggles* – it´s old, but still GOOD… and I´m not talking about “Loreley”… *LOL*

    I must say that your goosebumps are the most perfect ones I have ever seen. And in such a perfect pink, no wonder the man was so interested in them.

    It’s funny too, ‘cos we’ve been watching a “Goosebumps” marathon throughout the times we’ve been home. It is a great show that is appropriate for preteens. I love it as an adult. lol
