Sunday Stills: Shadows

So I'm sitting at the table about to eat dinner and I glance at the spectacular flowers that Emily gave me. The sunlight from the skylight is hitting them just so.

Jump up from the table, grab my camera, and head for the fireplace mantel.

This may be one of my all time favorite photos:


The following photo captures the shadow cast by the flower on the vase. Even better, one of my father's paintings can be seen in the shadows behind the flower and vase.

Detail of the shadows cast onto the vase.

Thanks to Emily for the huge, neon sunflowers. A week later and they still look great.

See more shadows at Sunday Stills.

The light is fabulous...I agree the first is the best shot, although number 2 is interesting with all the textures/shadows combining. The colors of the flower really make it all come together.

I love the painting hidden behind the vase, like it is in the shadows of the vase and flower also.
