Negative Space for Photo Art Friday


Coreopsis negative space

The Coreopsis ‘sunburst’ are beginning to bloom in the Sandbox.  I love the bright yellow colour but I find like all yellow flowers they are hard to photograph for some reason.  I always think that I do not capture the colour that well.    I thought that these blooms contrasted nicely with the wood on the deck.  I kept them off to one side so there was space on the right.  You could add a little saying or a quote if you wanted to use the photo for a card. 

I am joining Bonnie for Photo Art Friday.   Hope you have a wonderful day and weekend.

Just beautiful! Love the soft blur that gives the image such a dreamy, romantic feel. Thank you for sharing with Photo Art Friday, Valerie.
I've been visiting around from who knows where but I got here. Lovely photography and the way you manipulate the pictures is so romantic and country. Really nice. Linda Following also

You're right about the yellow - I just took some pictures of my evening primrose and they are almost neon looking. This is gorgeous with the wood in the background.
Hi Val
Yellow flowers captured in the right light just glow, don't they?

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
