LAVENDER LOVE


I love Kim's Be Still 52 Class... it's so much more then Still Life Photography! One of the 
assignments is to find props, backdrops and table tops. For this image I glued a piece of 
Birch Bark on hard board for my background and used a vintage Pocket Watch and 
some Lavender as props.

Lavender is really a gift of the summer! And one photo is more beautiful than the other, Barbara.
And great to see you used your gorgeous photo with the peony and the hat as a new cover picture of your blog! ;-)
Enjoy a wonderful Tuesday,
Uwe.

Wat een mooi idee, de berkenbast als achtergrond, Barbara !
Ik hou van lavendel, prachtig op foto gezet ...
Kim's BeStill 52 is geweldig, ik had al een hele verzameling vanalles en nog wat, maar nu krijg ik nog veel meer inspiratie :-)
Fijne week,
Sylvia

Lavendel oh ik hoe ervan. Als ik er langs loop wil ik altijd even met m'n handen er door gaan zo lekker ruikt het.
Mooie foto's Barbara.

Lovely set of images! That bokeh in the first shot is stunning - I love it on the chain.

Barbara said...

I have an old watch that belonged to my husbands family and I keep meaning to play with it in photos and keep forgetting. I am sure I will not do it justice as you have here. Such wonderful photography Barbara, I love each one more than the next. Love the new header also. You have really WOWed me this week.

Oh Barbara, Every image today is simply stunning! My favorite is the "key to my heart." Your compositions are thoughtful and I can see that you shared your love of lavender in a personal way. It is amazing to me that we are all taking pictures of similar things and yet every picture is unique. Such a joy to get to know you through your photographs!

Hi Barbara,
Such a wonderful Still Life woth the old watch, the lavendels and the birch tree underlayer ... A dream!
Your Lavendels are exquisite - You have captured the blue color in a wonderful way, the light and the shadows...
And your new header is delightful and scents of summer!

Barbara,
The pocket watch is a perfect prop for this 'Be Still' post because we are always trying to be somewhere on time and watching our clocks, and it's such a great reminder to just 'Be Still' and notice the pleasures in our every day lives. The lavender pictures are so pretty, and I love the scent so much. You always have so much beauty here on your blog, and I appreciate that so very much.

love,
~Sheri

Heerlijke lavendel die zich goed leent voor ene mooie reportage...leuk om de verschillen te zien in Lavendelsoorten, de Lavendel Stoechas met z'n mooie paarse pluimpjes, ook de gedroogde bloemen zijn zo prachtig.
Een kleurige, geurende post.

Lieve groet, Eefie
