Friday flowers

A simple little arrangement.

I think the cropping of photos is so interesting - I don't crop post-photo for some reason, but I almost always take a range of distance shots and then pick and choose. It can totally change the feeling.

Close in ...

Way out ...

I used to try to tidy up for my flower shots, but I don't anymore, for the most part.

  1. Love this. I think the first one is my favourite, from a photography perspective. But the bottom one satisfies my nosey-parker streak!

  4. I love the pieces you have hanging on the wall! If only I could figure out what they are...haha. Old pots?

  5. i'm such a sucker for close-ups. i think there is probably something this says about my personality, but i'll leave the analysis to the experts. in the meantime, i think i'll try to remember to zoom it out a bit this weekend.

  8. Those pieces on the wall are indeed pots! They're my vintage Dansk pieces and I love them so much that we keep them displayed whenever we aren't actually baking in them. You can see them here and here. As well as in almost all of my holiday posts, because I use them for most holidays and large gatherings.

    @ erin - I lean towards the close ups as well. They're easier to control, and I like the bit of mystery. So I have to sort of force myself to go outward a bit when I'm shooting.

  14. I'm so glad you don't - leave the perfectly styled living rooms to the magazines. We are keeping it REAL here in blogland! ;) Happy Friday and good luck with the wedding planning. I hear that once you have the location down, it gets much easier to decide the theme/colors/etc.

  16. Since you apparently love photography, I hope you've chosen an amazing photographer for your wedding. I know I'm somewhat biased, but the photographer is probably the most important vendor. A good photographer with experience should also be able to help with other vendors and details for your wedding. You might get some great ideas.
