Something New, Something Blue..
I put this shot together late this afternoon for all of you who may be tired with all my "leftovers" from Upstate, and from looking at too many landscapes. I bought this pitcher from France a couple of years ago, and I noticed it on a shelf the other day. The Chrysanthemums, which are long past prime, are growing by the front porch steps. So in desperation this afternoon, I thought I would create a still life from stuff I had around. So the still life is the "new" part of the title. As for the "blue", I did the photograph long after the sun had set - it is a long exposure on the tripod. Once the sun sets, the light all comes from the blue sky, and so everything that the sky illuminates is blue, as this still life is. Please click on the image to see it with more saturation.
