Photography

DS1 has started to take an interest in photography and took these photos a while ago...these were all taken in the back garden and were his first attempts at photography. They have not been edited and I thought they were quite good and showed he had an 'eye' for a good pic....but I am a little biased as his mum, what do you think? Sorry it took me sooooo long to post them son x






These cherries grow wild near our home...yummy!


The wall of our Turkish wood oven that hubby built in the back garden...
The following three are the Nigella Flower from which blackseed is produced...in my mind it is only fitting that something as beneficial as blackseed should be borne from such a beautiful flower.

Assalamualaykum,
Lovely photos, maashAllah. I have lots of Nigella in the garden, I had no idea the seeds were blackseed. Please can you tell me more?

Wa alaikum assalaam

Jazakillahu khair, he will be pleased that someone else like his pics lol. OK, so your question prompted me to do some additional research and it appears that this species, although the seeds are edible, are not the ones used in black seed oil **blush**, sorry. It is the seeds of the species Nigella Sativa that are used for this purpose, the seeds are identical but the flower is different. I'm gonna go and taste some now to see what they taste like...
Wassalaam xXx
