This week Louise and I found inspiration in our gardens (and why not – so much inspiration in a spring garden).
My photo is of the first tomatoes from my garden this season (the first of many, I hope). They are so small and red, but not at all perfect. I decided to set up a fun shot – the fun came mostly from trying to get the tomatoes balanced. What I love about this shot is the way it looks like a reflection on first glance, but then you realise it’s not. I was lucky with this – one shot and I knew I had a winner.
Louise was out cutting roses when she spotted this friendly fellow. At first, he seemed frightened and kept moving away from the camera, but after a while, he seemed to understand that she wasn’t going to hurt him, and he looked straight at the camera for her as if proud to have his photo taken.
As always, click on the images to see the larger versions.
Once a week, Louise (of Louise Allan: Life From the Attic) and I team up to share creative photos on our websites. It’s all part of our challenge to stretch ourselves creatively.
