Wouldn’t you agree? My favourite flower, ranunculus, arrived on my doorstep this week from this wonderful and favourite flower shop in town. To me they are sweet, graceful, elegant, dainty, pretty, fanciful and sprightly. Not only am I delighted to have some colour added to my surroundings, but I was eager to put my camera lens to them, a bonus when I can feel lazy about taking pictures this time of year.
I enjoyed experimenting with light and dark backgrounds and the various feelings each evokes. For instance, this last image with the black background and moody lighting with the mix of yellow and pinks makes me think of the 70’s, Tammy Wynette and long, heavy, thick orange and black drapery from that era. In essence, it leaves me feeling uncomfortable!! I’d much rather look at the second black and white image b/c it suits more of my esthetic present day. However, I made a choice to post them all b/c I feel it’s important to experience a range of feelings and emotions when we look at art of any kind. It’s a large part of its purpose after all.
A wedding at The Cove Country Inn had me on top of Foley Mountain looking down on the quaint village of Westport, ON along the Rideau River.
I liked how both of them were finishing writing their speeches at the exact same time in separate buildings.
Andrea and Dave share a lot in common, one of them being their love for the great outdoors – a great fit for this nature-loving photographer! I soon realized that out of all the weddings I have photographed, only one of them has taken place inside a church.
Andrea so much wanted have photographs on top of the mountain that she donned big rubber boots, hiked up her wedding dress and was game for anything I had to offer. How do you not love a hearty gal?? The elegance of her ivory wedding dress juxtaposed against the wild forest complimented one another beautifully.
This is going to be a small sneak peek for the bride as I still have work to do, so I hope to post more images once I’m all done editing!
