February 25 ~ Serenity


Another grey and wet day here, so yet again I was in the "studio". Glad that the flowers I bought yesterday still look perfect.

I spent quite a lot of time tidying up the room before taking photos - it's gotten a bit disorganized since our trip to Canada, and I needed to put some order back into it. I was having a hard time keeping tabs on where all my little props were, it was that cluttered. Now, everything is in storage boxes and has its own place. Much better!

I felt so calm and tranquil while taking this photo, I couldn't help but title it "Serenity". I don't often buy white tulips, but it appealed to me yesterday; I'm glad I did get it. It just exudes peace and quiet to me. All in all, it's been a wonderful Sunday; hope you've all been enjoying yours.

Thank you so very much for visiting my blog and leaving the comments you do. I appreciate them tremendously, and they brighten my day immeasureably. {{{HUGS}}} for all who would like one.

And "serene" is an apt descriptor for that shot

Anna,

The weather here is driving me nuts as well. When I'm not working it's raining. I need to get shooting outdoors soon.

Nice shot, great choice of background. It really sets the colours off.

Love this white tulip so aptly named, Anna.

Hugs to you too! I sure needed the one from you. ;)
