"Be Still Sunday...


"When you approach something to photograph it,
first be still with yourself until the object of your attention affirms your presence.
Then don't leave until you have captured it's essence."

-Minor White



"The Day After"
Still Life


...ironically, I MIGHT be able to say the same about how I approach Valentines Day AND the Better Half.  Hoping you all had a fabulous one!

Be Still.






Here's where I "link up" today.

  5. That's a lovely photo, I particularly like it because it reminds me of my wedding day last summer, we had pink ribbon and gypsophila on our wedding cake :-)

  7. Beautiful shot of the bouquet. I'm staying inside as well. This weather is only good for geese & turkey vultures which I see all year round. Hope your Valentine's Day was great. :)

  8. If ever there was a flower that epitomizes "still" and "simplicity" it is Baby's Breathe. Lovely and tranquil shot. Hope you have had a warm and peacefully loving weekend.

  12. Beautiful composition, color, and focus. It's unusual to see Baby's Breath being the star of the flower show. Its delicacy has always made it a favorite of mine. I love this!
