Returned to shooting flowers this week for color...and with that is a cute story. Stopped on my way to work Thursday to pick up a wrap for lunch, and there were several very nice looking bouquets at the register. I purchased one...enjoyed it all day at work...and then brought it home. When I walked into the house I put the flowers down on the table and extended a "Thank You" to my husband for the flowers. He got this semi-baffled look on his face and replied that he'd not gottem me flowers. I looked at him and said, "Well somebody gave me flowers today." Another moments hesitation...and then he looked at me and said, "I smell a photo opp going on here~~" Guess after 25+ years....it's hard to fool um~~ Ü The Tulips were on sale this week...they are just so beautiful ~ had to add them too.
Ok...so here we are half way through the month of April and I need an original "color" photo for the month. What to shoot...what to shoot. Not any real color outside yet. Drove around Oswego today....nothing really catching my eyes there either. COLOR. What speaks COLOR to me. Sad to say. PEEPS. PEEPS=COLOR
So I set up a mini "choir" of PEEPS and let them sing while I tried to find an angle that I liked.
Hope you enjoy~~~
Color...because of the season...when I think of color I think of the desire to see color bursting from flowers and trees....but so far...the only color has been from these little beauties out on the south side of the house....only a few inches tall....I was pretty wet by the time I got up from lying in the yard Ü Hope you enjoy these Glory of the Snow flowers.
Ok~I'm cheating~ I'm going to post another photo for this week . April starts our color series ~ and "April Fools" the only color outside today was grey.
The sky was grey....the river was grey...it was eerie to walk along the river today in the fog...but at the same time refreshing because behind the rain and the fog and the grey....there was a smell of something different. Spring is just around the corner. I know it ~ I feel it through the grey.
