Many of the spring flowers have long gone;
There are still a few things blooming right now;
Do you pick flowers and bring them into your home? When you do, do you find the perfect vase to place them in? This week's Be Still 52 exercise was to find unique vessels for our flowers. I thought about this for a whole week. Walking around the house and searching for anything that could hold flowers. Then I spotted an empty Coke can sitting on the counter. Why not? It holds water!
I began to gather things I thought would work for the shot choosing fun things with touches of red.
Not quiet happy with it, I decided to move one of the flowers and pull back a little bit. I have a tendency to fill the frame.
Check out these cool sunglasses. They were my daughter's when she was a teenager. They're one of the sentimental things I was never able to get rid of. She loved her Coca-Cola glasses!
For one last composition, I took everything out but the can and the flowers. I like this. I like the simplicity and the cleanness of it. This turned out to be my favorite.
Lately, I haven't been able to do the exercise just once. so I kept looking and found a vintage lipstick holder that a dear older friend had given me. Although it doesn't hold water, it was perfect for a little romantic still life.
If you bring flowers into your home,
think outside the box;
put them in something unique.
They will brighten your day!
