#238 pretty in pink

238/365 pretty in pink, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

I was trying to create some soft light pictures for the Daily Shoot today:

Make a photograph with soft light today. Try to almost totally eliminate shadows on your subject.

I noticed that soft light suits flowers quite well. It was fun playing with a white umbrella on our balcony to try and soften the light on a cloudy evening.

I really like the Finnish tradition of bringing some flowers when visiting friends. This pink pot plant was given to me by a dear friend back at the beginning of May! And it is still in full bloom on the balcony . It has been bringing us joy and beauty all through the hot summer. Thank you Heli!

    I love that tradition too … especially in the winter when everything else is drab and grey… and the wonderful tulips and daffs in Spring are oh so welcome as well aren’t they?

    lovely pic btw

    I need flowers around me and love them both indoors and out. Potted plants keep giving – these are gorgeous.
