Our World Tuesday: Roses in the Snow
There was a lot of hanging out in the house this weekend as Adella gets ready for her States audition and we look after our friends' Schnauzer. Max, who is in the foreground, is an ungainly teenager alongside the suave and sophisticated Herr Clyde E. Doodle. Still, in the sharp, angular sunlight of a January morning, he looks pretty smooth himself.
The light was so strong that I decided to play with my fading roses that still sit on the dining table because I don't feel like parting with them. This image makes me think of summer. Briefly. The sun didn't last too long. Della and I decided to take her faded roses outside to photograph them in the snow. Her digital photography class has started at school, and we felt like playing.
Earlier in the day, we decided to play with her Sun-Art paper to make a card for a special event that is coming up. This stuff is fun. We assembled bits and pieces from our bouquets and came up with this.
After five minutes, you wash the paper in water with lemon juice, and you have a print that captures the shadows. We managed to create a windy look that will serve our purposes just fine.
We are off to a new week of school and cold and snow in the forecast and pups who are always happy to see us. It is good.
