A Gerbera’s Eye View

A Gerbera’s Eye View

I have found it really hard to get out and about with my camera over the past couple of weeks. Aside from the fact that the weather is extremely grey and it feels like I am living in ‘boring land’, I have also had a bad cough and cold. Instead, I settled on looking for an indoor project using a picture of a gerbera. I decided to do a take on my Patterns with Pencils shot which I published almost a year ago.

This time, I once again used the pane of glass and water droplets but, instead of pencils under the glass, I used my iPad. I chose a photo of a gerbera daisy and placed the droplets just over the centre of the flower. To me, it looks like a set of 4 eyes!

If you are on Instagram, then I would love you to join my linky, InstaLinkLove. It is open until Sunday evening at 9.30pm (probably one of the easiest linkys out there!).

    So sorry you’ve not been feeling well, I hope you are better soon. It is hard getting out when the weather is so cold. I love your photo, the colours are amazing and yes, they do look like eyeballs.

    It’s really freaky, but a fabulous photo! I love the way you’re so creative. It’s so hard to find the right things and the right light to take photos at this time of year.

    I see the eyes too. If you look at it long enough the flower seems to shrink (it did for me anyway). I thought it was something on a flame at first. I bet you had fun creating it, even if you couldn’t get outside 🙂 #MySundayPhoto

    Such a clever way to get a simple, eye catching image. I will start copying you in the very near future Victoria! Get well soon. #MySundayPhoto

    Hi Victoria, I love your creativity and the highlighted bits do indeed look like the eyes of a creature from Dr. Who.

    Hope you feel brighter soon and take care.
