For a shoot last week I brought out some props that I found at an antique shop.  So many ways to use these little treasures!  

More to come! 

Magic in the Garden

Zucchini Blossom

Zucchini Blossom

Zucchini BlossomThe garden sure is magical, isn’t it?

When working in the garden the other day I noticed the light drifting in and out of the zucchini vines.

As it danced it’s way around the garden I noticed how beautiful it was when resting upon the blossoms tucked deep inside the vines.

So yes, off I went to grab my camera and a macro lens!

If you are interested in seeing a zucchini blossom in black and white, be sure to visit Monochromia this Thursday.

Enjoy the day!

The hands in the photograph, as the caption reads are my grandmothers.  She is 90 years young and I simply adore her!

Black and White Flower

Flower I

SS 1/60 f10.0 ISO 400

This image was taken last week during a trip to Grand Cayman Island. I found the flower on the ground when visiting the Botanical Garden and placed it on a fence railing to photograph it. I am not quite sure what the name of this flower is, but am thinking it must be in either the anemone or daisy families.

The image above was part of my introductory post at a new blog titled Monocromia.  The blog was initiated by my friend Joe, from The Visual Chronicle.  Joe invited several photographers from around the world to be part of his initiative to start a black and white only photography blog.  Each day of the week a different photographer will be posting a black and white image.  My post was the third post on the new blog and after just three posts, the blog is doing quite well with a gaining number of followers.  For the black and white enthusiasts, be sure to stop by Monochromia and see the beautiful work by many talented artists.  In addition, another blog well worth visiting for those who love black and white photography is Leanne Cole’s Monochromatic Madness.  Every Tuesday Leanne posts black and white images by various photographers.  Always incredible talent to be seen.

My intention is to not always duplicate my posts on Monochromia and here, but to have different images shared on the different sites.  Time will be the ultimate deciding factor, however.  I also hope to send more images over to Leanne for inclusion in her Monochrome Madness series.  We’ll see how successful I am…with the preparations for the studio opening in September and the kids home for summer my time is proving to be limited.

Enjoy the day!

As those of you who have been following for some time know, flowers are one of my favorite subjects and I love to work with the “Victorian Language of Flowers”.  In the “Victorian Language of Flowers”, the Lotus means: Estranged Love and Forgetful of the Past.
