In the beginning…
When I first developed an interest in photography, I only had the desire to photograph still objects…specifically flowers. (Wow, to think how long ago that was…and how far I have come from that line of thought!)
On Thursday I recieved a pail of beautiful tulips from my friend Jan for my birthday. (Thank you Jan – they’re so “Spring”!!) I brought them home, found a place to set them and for the first time, in an embarassingly long time – I busted out my camera.
The afternoon sun was blazing through my windows to the West which was making for some very harsh lighting. Instead of moving them, I left them right as they were.
I find that my favorite shots tend to be ones that don’t have the clear subject. I mean really, when you’re trying to be abstract – isn’t that the point? To draw your eye all over the image?
So here are the few shots I came up with. I was complaining that I needed some creativity and this exercise fulfulled me for the time being. 🙂
Ahhh….A Day in The Life…
