Lilies… a study

You must know by now I’m addicted to flower photography. But while my usual subjects are found growing by the wayside, not these. These lilies are my regular treat to myself.

    • It is hard not to like them. I’ve taken to treating myself. I’ve always got at least one vase of flowers fresh. Might be lilies, might be roses, might be carnations, might be alstroemeria. But they’re always white. My room is quite dark, and the white brightens it

    • Thank you. It was a spur of the moment think. I’d bought the lilies, arranged them, walked past them and saw the composition. So out came the camera. I played about a bit with lighting. Easily done since the wall is lavender, it lends itself to a wide spectrum. Note, I don’t have Photoshop, so there’s no messing here. And the brass candlesticks looked so good in that light

  9. I love how the one lily that’s beginning to open is glowing a bit. Magical!

    • The one that’s caught in the glow of the tablelamp. The photo was taken at night, with all lights blazing, and with flash. Yet it’s still a dark picture, which I liked. Those lilies are still going strong, enormous blooms.


  10. Do you expect them to bloom?
