In the garden


This week's theme is 'in the garden'. I was so tempted to produce a glowing flower shot as my garden is full to the brim with glorious blossom, but I made a promise to myself at the beginning of this project not to settle for the first interpretation that comes to me. I want to push my imagination and delve further into photographic visions. And so I created a series of shadow shots, which incidentally fits in wonderfully with the Light Hunters e-course, which I am currently participating in. Searching for light and shadow is right up my street and has also made me look at my world with yet another perspective. And so I shall share with you two of my favourite shots of my series so far.



'Every moment of light and dark is a miracle.'

that first one is lovely. i like the shape of the leaves, the angle you shot it, and the desaturated overall look.

Good job seeking out the unexpected in both images. I love the contrast between the soft leafy "shadow" and the rigid woodgrain "reality" in the second shot.

The pattern and texture of the leaves against the grain of the wood is so eye-pleasing, Milena!

What a lovely interpretation! That is a great idea. Hmm, I may explore that myself.
