I like how the shadows of the flowers fit perfectly on the wall.
Thank you- I took this in the morning when the light streams into that room. My wife likes to have plants round the house and also dried flowers; these were actually dried barley I think.
That’s lovely. Wonderful light and shadows. I’ve sometimes thought of taking photos of books I have on a particular shelf which gets illuminated with the setting sun in Spring and Autumn. Seeing your images of books has encouraged me to do so! Thank you.
Thank you; pleased that you are considering giving it a try too:)
A problem I have had is that one of the blog rules is not to move anything for a picture, although I do crop and edit afterwards. That makes a shelf of books quite a difficult subject as they are not arranged for visual effect, while different sized books and deep shelves mean some are in shadow and not clearly visible. I would be interested to hear how far (if at all) you decide you need to shift books around to get the pictures you want.
I think the natural display is all the better for being left as it is even if some titles can’t be read. There is a warmth and integrity which appeals. The shelf I want to photograph has books of quite even size which wasn’t planned that way, interestingly! I’ve decided I won’t be moving the books around thereby keeping the integrity. What I might move, though, are some ornaments which sit in front of some of the titles – although I’m not sure about that yet.
