photo friday. fifteen.

 I love how a quick trip out to the backyard to take one picture
turns into a half hour game of seek and snap.

And then you bring some of the backyard into the house and snap some more.

I love the magic that happens when you combine glass, water and light.

I love hydrangeas, and I neglected mine until it was almost too late.
At their peak, they're much more blue.
But they're still lovely.

Here's a fun one, and I added a pull back shot 
so you can see the lengths to which I go to find the right light.

That butcher block board we bought from IKEA's As-Is section for $13 nine years ago is really coming in handy. It's going to be turned into a rolling kitchen cart any minute now (which will really end up being my mobile food photography station. . . shh), but while it's waiting, it lives in the back of our closet. I gave it a job to make it feel special. :)

Go out and document your summery backyard before the summer is over!

Il reste encore des tournesols dans ton jardin ? C'est chouette ! mmh qu'y a-t-il dans le mien ??

Merci Sophie! Non, ce tournesol est désormais en baissant la tête.

I like the sunflower pics better than the contest entries--composition is more arresting and the bee is just cool. Did you enter these as well?
