Boots and Blooms

I received an e-mail yesterday notifying me that my first rolls of film had been scanned by my lab and were ready for use. I couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of work, and I hope to post the first image by the end of the week. The only drawback is that it is delaying the delivery of my prints by a day or so. Still worth it. Within a few weeks, my days of scanning should be almost non-existent.

Another first bloom for me this spring. Every year these daffodil leaves would sprout up on the southeast side of the yard, but never produced any flowers. This year I was surprised with almost a dozen of these most frilly daffodils. We were expecting a storm, so I cut all these and thought I need to photograph them. I chose to use my husband’s workbooks, as there was a nice contrast with the delicate blooms and his rugged footwear.

Interesting addition of the washboard in the background. Rugged boots and delicate flowers, manmade and natural. Good contrasts. :)
Plus Cheerwine just goes good anywhere you put it.

Perfect that the boots still show evidence of work with their bits of grit and grunge caked on - can't wait to see some of those lab scans, too!

Although very simple its also a very creative thought process. Image construction is physical image composition and you have a very good understanding of it.
