Project Yellow: Take 3

"Peeking Spring"
2008

Finally, a bit of morning sunshine today. With camera in hand and dog by my side, I decided to stroll outside in search of a shot for this yellow adventure. Might I say...DIFFICULT? Yes, I could photograph an everyday item with an everyday view - but that was not what I was looking for. At first, I was having a love/hate battle with the sunlight; loving it for being out, hating it for casting shadows of my camera and hands wherever I was shooting. In the end, the love won with appreciation for the flower shadows against the brick wall.

I like the dimension the shadow adds (but I know what you're talkin' about when you don't "want" it to be part of your composition).

Fun caption for a cheerful entry for PY. Can't wait to see what Anna comes up with next!

Michelle - mine are in direct sun, I think that helps :)

Robin - Don't get me wrong, I like the flower shadows, I just didn't want the shadows of my hands and camera covering the shot :) I can't wait for the next project idea either!

Hard work and patience pays off! A very nice capture. I love the brick background for the yellow flowers. I'm glad you challenged yourself to try to get something without an "everyday view." Once again, great work!
