Picture Surprises

Petunia's bright color contrasts with dark shadow of photographer.


This red petunia has such a vibrant, bright color. When I took the photo, the sun was behind me, touching the red petunia with a special warmth.  I focused on the petunia.  I didn’t notice that my shadow was in the picture too.  Later, when I looked at the pictures I’d taken, I saw the contrast in this picture, the darkness of the shadowy figure against the bright red of the petunia.  I like the contrast and think it adds interest to the photo, but it did surprise me that I was a shadowy figure in the picture.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
