Pottery, Flowers and Letters
MIXING THINGS UP A BIT!
I arranged this image because my husband bought me some roses and I couldn't let them go unphotographed.
To help make the rose bouquet larger I decided to pick some daffodils which were blooming.
Since the roses were kinda an orange color, I decided to place the flowers in a pottery vase I had purchased at a garage sale.
I then added some more pottery vases of various sizes which were a flea market find.
The dog actually is about 61 years old. Before my parents were married they went on a date to a carnival and my dad "won" this dog as a prize. My mother named the dog "Pedro."
My dad loved to save birthday cards, sympathy cards, etc., so I placed a couple in the photo.
I used a very dark background material when I photographed the picture and then later added a textured background when I got the picture into the computer.
Challenge for Today:
Photograph some vases or pots of various heights and shapes.
