Sunny and Cold

The sun came out for awhile last weekend, but it was still cold as I ventured out to my studio (AKA garage) for a photo session. I opened the garage door for natural light, set what was left of my latest Trader Joe’s bouquet on some bead board, and had fun with my Edge 80 for as long as I could stand the cold. I tilted the lens down and to the left, focusing on the scissors for this shot. I liked the result and added texture to the image for Texture Tuesday.

    These look like those Japanese scissors? I have some from Niwaki? They are very good! Jane

  3. It looks like you’re really getting the hang of that lens, baby! Nice job. I love them both although the second probably gives more of a feeling of the cold!

  5. Both are so pretty, hard to choose which I like better. And do you know what? I don’t have to. Why not enjoy them both?
