The place to see and share photographs of reflections
This is absolutely beautiful And your caption is just wonderful. Well done. I know this is late but Happy Valentine's Day to you and Vicki and Gung Hei Fat Choy!
James, lovely images and a great caption. Really wonderful black & white.
Great captions, followed by great quote. Thanks for the reminder. Anna :)
The black and white is just perfect with the message!
"There's got to be the morning after..." Love the thorny vine!
A bit sad, but very effective.
superbes b&w, j'adore tes photos des branches
That is good,"Don't let the bloom fall off of the rose just because Valentine's Day is over".Let the rose always be with you, MB
Wonderful photos. I like what Maria said, too.I'm about to take some shots of some unusual roses my son bought me yesterday.
Very nice. I particularly like the second shot.
Looks to be a bit of a thorny subject to be sure! Very nice, monochrome very appropriate.
Fabulous shots James!
Beautifully captured details. James!
Love the pricks!
Nice B/W photography
Good choice for Monochrome Monday. ;-)
You're so true, and you show it in a perfect way..
That's funny - we do have perfect contrasts today. Thanks for the compliment, it means a lot coming from you! I feel much the same about your photography.PS - I don't have a macro lens...not in the budget for me, so I reversed my 50mm prime lens that I got for Christmas. I need to buy an adapter so I don't have to hold it in place while I shoot. :) I have been playing with it all morning, kind of learning the technique. It is so fun not having a job...except when I think about the budget!
WoW! I really like these shots & they're grrreat in b&w!
Get the book Understanding Close Up Photography by Bryan Peterson - you will never regret it. It has lots of tips on how to shoot close up shots. (He explains the difference between close up and macro.) That is where I learned the reverse the lens tip. He has the most beautiful shots using this technique. I am going to buy an old Canon FD wide angle lens and a reversing ring adapter until I can get a macro lens. (I just keep getting outbid on ebay or missing the bid deadline.)
That's the problem with Valentine's day: a lot of people here think it's just commercial crap between Christmas and Easter and that you show someone that you love them in many and daily ways... Nice post though.
Gorgeous. I love black & white images.Desires
A very good message!
Love the soft background setting off the simple forms in the foreground. It makes for an ambience that is ambiguous....
Really love the first two especially. The contrast, simplicity of layout, and the soft glowing backgrounds are very effective. I like Valentine's Day even if it was made up by Hallmark. Very sweet message.Oh yeah, really, Harbor and Adams? I really miss those big full moons over Back Bay.
very cool shots, love the background on the last one. look great in black and white too!
Nice James. A lot more to this than meets the eye. Love your words.
As for the loneliness after the festival, I feel that it is amplified still more by the strictness of the splinter.
