“Coral Frills”

“Coral Frills”

“Dream in colours, for hues are vibrant.
Paint each day with a smile.
In days of past, don’t grieve;
Make new deposit to the pleasant memory bank!
Let your life be a reason for others to LIVE.”
― Somya Kedia

Once more, the effects of the black background surprised me.

When I selected this carnation from a bouquet, I did so because I saw some potential for a very ‘punchy’ image. The carnation, on observation, had a nice blend of coral shades and a very satiny texture.

As it turned out, they presented themselves in a very dramatic way under studio lights, further enhanced by the black background.  The swirl of colour seems to almost have movement to it. It certainly is nice to be able to preserve these images for future enjoyment as the carnation was part of a bouquet my children gave to my wife in celebration of her recent birthday.
