To create this photograph I placed a white tray on a white paper backdrop and used natural light from the side and front of the subject.  I used all white to create negative space and to highlight the overripe pomegranate.  In post processing I enhanced the color slightly using a curves layer in Photoshop CC.  I then added a touch of vintage haze using a levels layer in Photoshop CC.

The title of the photograph is based on the meaning of the flower of the pomegranate plant in the Victorian Language of Flowers – elegance.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Keep Your Promise

I see thee

The sun at your back

Water droplets rest

Untouched upon you

Like a kiss so gentle

On a lover’s lips.



Keep  Your Promise

Your petals so fine

Blow delicately in the breeze

Yet you hang on

With a grasp quite tight

As a flower does

To keep

The promise

Of everlasting beauty.

In the language of flowers the plum blossom means to keep your promise.  Although the blossoms are short-lived, the beauty of the flower is everlasting in the eye of the one who was blessed to see and smell it.
