Everything about this high key image is unplanned and nothing has been added to this image to get it to look like this.
Now the first thing to this story is I had been photographing some hollyhocks and I had taken the flowers away into my kitchen to get them into cooler conditions for awhile. (My photographing room is not air conditioned.)
The second part to this story is that though I had removed the flowers/vase I had left everything else on my photography table because I planned on resuming my hollyhock photographing session later. (I was using the penny to straighten up the vase a bit.)
Unfortunately, the last key element to this image's story is that I THINK my 28-200 zoom lens has gone bad.
Anyway when I went back with my flowers to try and see what my lens would do, my cat, Abby, was sound asleep amidst my faded blossoms and penny.
I went ahead and tried out my lens with Abby instead of the hollyhocks.
In my attempts to get my lens/camera to work this is one of the images I got.
This definitely isn't a still life image or is it?
Like I said earlier there was nothing done to this image except to take out the noise in the image and remove the purple fringe which happens in digital photography.
Anyway, I've placed my 28-200 zooms lens into a different camera bag and have gotten out the cheap zoom lens which came with my camera and I'm back to taking pictures.
Now I'm trying to decide which new lens to buy or whether I should purchase a new digital camera.....decisions are generally NEVER EASY!!!!!
Challenge for today:
None....I don't want this misfortune to come your way.
