i am really having fun with the share the shot challenges. taking the time to look for things that might make a nice subject and then actually getting the shot-it is a real opportunity to learn something about staging a shot and getting the effect you are hoping for in the photo. many of my shots come from the garden and red is a tough one. obviously, there are red flowers but i do not have any in my garden. i do however have red in the vegetable garden.
rhubarb chard-it has overwintered nicely and i love the red/green contrast.
shot in late afternoon and back lit by the setting sun, this leaf positively glows!
my assistant, the captain, he follows me around and i think he actually began to pose for me. he would get up on the chair and look at me almost as if saying-“i’m ready for my close up…” having a red nose doesn’t hurt-it goes with the theme.
and it wouldn’t be spring without red tulips-from the lawn and garden show, i don’t have any red ones, just pink this year.
