THEME DAY--Shadows-- 'Roses in Shadow'

This isn’t a recent photo. I took it a year and a half ago, in very dim light, at the wedding of the daughter of a close friend. I’ve made an enlargement, which hangs on my wall, and while still attractive, it lacks a bit of the luminosity that you can appreciate on your screen. Shadows and light; this is also a foreshadowing of my own daughter’s upcoming wedding in September.

That is lovely, I can see why you have it hanging on your wall. I really like the very dark area to the right, a perfect contrast with the flowers. Happy theme day :)

Lovely, Bibi. I'm sorry I've missed the last several days posts, too. The hair sisters are great!

Happy May Day!

They have such a delicate structure, Bibi. And then we come to the colour ... so incredibly gorgeous. I do like the way the eye goes from the shadows to the light. Such a good photo and a good choice for the theme.

Pictures of roses go so well with souvenirs...

Beautiful picture. It reminds me of a decoration my mom got once. It was a rose whose base and thorns were made of metal and it symbolized the path of life.

Bibi, this is just absolutely beautiful. The light and the composition and the colour all transcend the subject matter. Bravo!

I like your choice.. creamy roses are the loveliest.
Hope you will take time to take pictures at and before your daughter's wedding!!

Shadows of the past kept alive forever in one elegant image. Simply divine. I look forward to your daughter's wedding images, those that are not too personal of course for us to view.

Such a tender photo. It's like a old masters painting. Congrats on a splendid Theme Day.
Hope the wedding prep is going well and is not too hectic. There is so much to do.
