Barely There...

I purchased several bouquets of flowers a couple of days ago.  The weather today has been stormy and sunny, which always makes perfect photography light.  I thought I would capture and share a few images of these sort of make-up for the pillow massacre.

I'm normally not a fan of any shade of purple. But every once in a while, I will run across a flower that is the palest shade of lavender and I just have to buy them.  Like these...

I call them "Barely There" because the lavender color is barely there.

It is amazing how light sometimes changes the color of an object.

My 50mm lens gives me a short depth of field, with the focus on the flower and the background blurred.

The petals give the illusion of being transparent.  I love the way some of the stems are bending, as though swaying in a breeze.  Don't you?

The house is quiet.  Outside the wind is blowing, but nothing can be heard but the click of my shutter.

It's a nice sound.

I think you would agree!
