2433 – The Flowers

Nice neighbors recently brought us these beautiful flowers as an unexpected present, and also unexpectedly I ended up with the job of taking an image of them. The flowers, not the neighbors πŸ˜€

If you look carefully, you can see where I have taken the image: on the glass ceramic cooktop in our kitchen. They are lit by indirect natural light and it took me two attempts in Lightroom to get colors and contrasts right. Well, what I consider “right” anyway πŸ™‚

The Song of the Day is “The Flowers” from Regina Spektor’s 2004 album “Soviet Kitsch”. Hear it on YouTube.

    1. Neither am I πŸ™‚

      But it’s true, I think it’s not a bad job, because the whole tonal range is contained, detail is visible in the highlights, and there is still plenty of contrast. Took me a damn long time πŸ˜€

  1. For me it’s fun and joy to watch your photos every week. Since more than 45 years I am reading everything what is available (for me) about all kinds of photography and photographic topics. I am searching every day in the internet for interesting news, interesting photographers and their work. In my life I have taken many 10.000 of pictures myself, I am (better: was) also collecting photographs from famous (beginning with A, like Ansel Adams) and also not so famous photographers, if I liked the pictures. Nowadays I am reducing the time, reading, looking, etc., and I am trying to concentrate on few intersting sites like yours, books, pictures. I have found your blog by chance via a link on a blog from Far East some months ago and now I am a little bit caught by your pictures, which have for me a very special character, which cannot be seen at a first glance.Theyt seem to be “only” everyday pictures . But I have the feeling, there is a second layer behind the “curtain”, which brings my interst up. I like you pictures, also your thoughtful comments about this and that, and last but not least I am also surprised about you stunning choice of music, you are linking with the titles of your photos.

    1. Franz, thanks and welcome to my blog. Glad you like it, and sorry for not being very responsive at the moment. I try though πŸ™‚
