The Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow

Light and Shadow

Light that create a shadow -different sides of the same coin:) I love the structure of shadows on the wall and the possibility to create different structures, playing with different light and source of light. Of course the shadow is also created by the object in focus. These components are one of the central things in photography, when I take photos indoors. I think it’s similar to all artistic expressions, that it is all about playing with and interpreting the surroundings. Fun and enjoyable!

This post is a interpretation of the theme in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I hope you enjoy the picture and if you would like to see more photos of shadows please click here.

A survivor from the summer -Morning Glory

Growing Morning Glory inside

Not by purpose though… But it is rather awesome to have these lovely flowers inside, they bring color into our house.

When we where taking some of our pots with citrus inside for the winter, we where surprised…

In one of the pots a new plant started to grow, and grow. It turned out it was the beautiful Morning Glory that was growing in our living room. A miracle that reminds us of summer and warmer days. On the photos in this post the flower where bathing in sunlight, the late morning light in October. Such a survivor, nature always finds its ways and I love it.

I first discovered these flowers in A small town i south of France. I fell in love with this colorful flowers, and since I have been growing them in my garden during summer. Some might say they behave like weeds, but I like them anyway:)

Another post, with a photo of this amazing flower, taken in my garden, not inside: Weekly Photo Challenge, New

Theme 18 of 365 in my photo challenge. The interpretation in this photo is for the theme “image”. An orchid with its shadow makes “2 images”. I used an ordinary lamp to put light on the flower.

Weekly Photo Challenge: New

A new day has come

Every morning they live. Every evening they pass away.

Every day I find a new Morning glory. And it always dies before sunset. Every day during summer.

Morning glory is one of my favorite flowers, so beautiful and vivid while they live their short life.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, this is my entry in the weekly photo challenge, if you like to see more, or participate, please click on the link.

Splashes of summer colors in a autumn day

Those last summer colors…

This post about “summer colors” were supposed to be written last weekend. But once again I have been struggling with some technical issues. This time I could not upload photos, wich is a very bad thing in a blog with photos, isn’t it?

Anyway, now it is solved, something about my rights, set by the web host. Enough about that for now.

Last saturday I went out to my garden for inspiration and also to make some cleaning up before winter is here. I found a lot of various colors, small splashes of summer colors in a very grey autumn day. Lovely and enjoyable:) I love my summer garden and will miss it when it’s gone. But on the other hand: winter and snow can be really lovely too.

Here are a selection of my last flowers for this season, I hope you will enjoy them. And I hope that you might sence how wonderful they look out there in all the grey and brown autumn days.

Weekly photo challenge; in the middle of springtime

Weekly photo challenge; springtime

To read more about this challenge, please click the link above!

We have now entered May and we are in the middle of springtime, if you ask me this is the best time of the year. May and June are such beautiful months with all blossoms and all light green in different shades.

One thing that really means that spring is here is soap bubbles. My children loves them and so do I;)

This season also gives us who loves gardening a lot of enjoyable things. Buds that are going to burst out in wonderful blossom. Every tree has its own green color. The next four photos shows 2 wonderful buds and some of all the wonderful green in nature right now. And finally; the flower of flowers, the one that last only for a few days but bear such beauty.

Same items from different perspectives

Small details can really make a difference. I shoot a photo on my tulips inside my kitchen, with great light through the window:

When I went outside I just had to take a photo from that direction to…

I did the same thing to some red berries in the forest, first I took a photo a sunny day in November. The light is great, just like in my first photo:

Yesterday I found almost the same berries, whit some fresh snow on them:

No sun, but the snow do gives the photo a great deal ligth in another way. Sometimes it is fun to experiment with small things nearby, in times when I spend a lot of time at home and do not get away much. This is one way. Of course you can experiment with other things like settings on your camera and so on, that I will do some other sunday at home:-)

Beauty in a simple orchid

My simple white orchid is on its way to get a lot of new flowers. I earlier wrote about my thought “keep it simple” and that is what this flower is. But still so beautiful. Got some great photos whit my phone, usually I don’t like the output from that camera, but this time I am (once again) surprised over the outcome. I took several photos, but I like these to the most. I can not really decide which one are the best but I sort of prefer the first one. I like the contrasts:)
