Monochrome Weekend


This spring I grew a hyacinth in a glass. After the flower died I moved the glass - and the sun shone through!

It's a jar full of light! Love it.

Initially I thought you had used a crystal piece - it has that quality.

A great mix of highlight and shadow!

That's a beautiful shot. I love the way the sun light is captured on the glass and roots.

You could title this image "light." I do like the quality of light and the tonality (and the composition of course).

High heels with the ao dai were very common. Thanks for visiting. I've been super busy away from the computer (taking photos) and haven't had much time for visiting these past few days.

Tash said...

What lighting. The roots are so interesting since they are so white on a dark background. Thx for showing us what can be done - in photography and in appreciation of all parts of flowers. :)

The roots look so clean and smooth inside the transparent glass.
