See your flowers bloom
Every month you bring me joy
Grow strong and hold true
I am currently following a weekly course with Emma over at A Year With My Camera. I have previously shared two of my lessons (White on White and Black on Black and The Bokeh Effect) but this week is all about black and white and, because you can’t hide behind colour, the composition of your image becomes really important.
She suggested that we re-visit our photo collection which she asked us to choose in week one of the course and mine was ‘Orchids’. I have 6 different orchid plants in our house and I love them all. They are something that brings me a lot of happiness and each one holds a memory for me.
As a result of the subject, I choose the orchid I have with white flowers and set it against a white background shining light onto it. It cast the shadow I had wanted in order to compose the image I was looking for.
To go with this image, I wanted to write a poem for this week’s Prose for Thought but as I am not so full of words at the moment, I tried my hand at a Haiku which you will find just under the photograph.
