What fascinates me about this photo is the way the colors pop through. I really enjoy working with color - finding them in the window or sky or wall or a nearby cup or plate.

These little dead violets looked forlorn on the counter until I got behind the camera and started moving the frame around and found color and fuzziness. Amazing how cool this project is.

I really love this shot! I never new dead flowers had so much "life" to them!

What project? I must go read previous days to discover. I need a new project for my camera! I have been slacking off terribly in this department since my sprained ankle!

Project 365, silly. :) That's all I meant. I would never have thought abut photographing dead flowers with colors behind them until this daily photo thing.

Such a gorgeous shot, it offers so much delicacy and sadness and even hope, somehow. I like the colors that you captured and the emotion too.

Love this one, Julie. Yes, it's really interesting how photography can bring to life seemingly lifeless subjects.

That's a beautiful close up. Wonderful.

I tried to comment on this photo yesterday, and blogger wouldn't let me. (I don't remember what I said, but I am sure it was something profound.)
