Spring is in the air ….

The sense that Spring is here and summer is close behind!

One of my little Kokeshi dolls in the Spring sunshine. Surrounded with flowers, it feels like summer can’t be far behind!
Actually the prevailing winds are still blowing down from the Arctic to us here in Scotland, and the wind chill factor is keeping our warm winter coats and hats at the front of the wardrobe …..

Shooting chrysanthemums

Still life with yellow chrysanthemums
Still life with yellow chrysanthemums

One thing I love to do is to create still life images that are a little different. Here the yellow of the chrysanthemums went so well with an old, embroidered tablecloth that belonged to my grandmother. Two blossoms, in a small posy vase, set in the window, and finished with a few fallen petals. And shot from above, so as to show the design on the cloth. I added a texture from 2 Lil Owls to complement and reinforce the yellow tones that knit the image together. On Flickr you can find my Album of Chrysanthemum photos
