There is a group on Instagram that has daily theme inspirations: @9Vaga_dailytheme9. This week color was the theme with each day being a different color. Wednesday was yellow and Thursday was green. The images above are a few that I posted on my Instagram page: @robyngrahamphotography. I hope you enjoy the images. I had fun playing with light and shadow.
And, if you are on Instagram, please follow me…I post images almost every day…Much more frequently than I get to blog!
You’ve all seen the silly smiley faces cut into sunflowers, yes? Or the singing smiley faced sunflower, how about that one? Well, as ridiculous as I think they are, and I would never spend a penny on one of them, there is something to be said for them. Sunflowers do have the power to make a person smile. The warm glow of the yellow petals warms the heart. Once the heart is warm, a smile is automatic. If you’ve ever driven by a field of sunflowers, you know exactly what I am talking about. Do you agree?
As the kids and I were eating dinner on the porch this evening I noticed the gorgeous light hitting the yellow Dahlias in the pot next to the table. I couldn’t keep such beauty to myself, so of course, I ran to get my camera. I hope you enjoy the Dahlias as much as I have this evening.
With so much side lighting exposure was a little tricky, but I love the accent of the slightly overexposed petals and the deeper yellow/orange in the center.
Same exposure challenge here, but different flower. It works, still beautiful.
Standing at attention…yet the petals look so soft and delicate.
And of course I cannot present you with flowers without offering one in black and white. I love the vibrancy and energy of flowers in color, but I find there is also something very timeless in black and white flowers. In my opinion, black and white flowers have a unique way of moving the inner being.
