Yellow is such a cheerful color to me. It is the color of the sun, of lemons for lemonade, of daffodils, daisies and butter. This tree stood in the middle of Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, Florida. I don’t think I saw another one like it while we were there and I have no idea what kind of tree it is but I was drawn to it. When the breeze blew the trumpet shaped flowers would float down like beautiful yellow confetti.
I enjoyed standing under it and letting the flowers float over me once I was finished taking these photos.
I usually see calla lilies in the white classic variety but when I found this bunch at my local grocery store in this color – I had to have them!
A still life (plural: still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on). wikipedia
One goal I set for myself this year was to work harder at my photography; read more, take lessons, get out of my comfort zone, etc. Practice practice practice! Recently I’ve been trying still life photography. I believe I have the basics as far as the camera aspects are concerned, it’s just coming up with the subject matter that’s been giving me some trouble. Here is one of my first attempts, a vase of calla lilies shot from above in monochrome.
