In Mimi’s Teacup

I saw these mini-carnations at the store the other day and immediately thought of pairing them with my grandmother’s chintz teacup for a still life. Both photos were taken with my iPhone camera and were edited with my old stand-by, Snapseed.  This app was especially useful in editing the second photo, because I needed to selectively adjust the reflection to bring it out; you couldn’t even see the reflection in the unedited version, but I knew it was there.

  1. Such a lovely cup, and a breath of spring with the pink carnations. Did you get snow? Goodness I thought it was cold here yesterday but so much better than the warmer weather we have been having. Have a good hump day.

    Your Mimi had good taste! Seriously, I really love the first photo, partially of the still life, because it reminds me of some sweet paintings my g-g-g-g-aunt made in Hungary. The dark background which surrounds the still life contributes to the “another time, another place” effect.
