photoworkshop {composition and perspective}

These are the photos I took for our second photo assignment. This assignment focused on composition and perspective by taking photos of a still life. Perhaps it sounds easy but I found it difficult. My still life is personal and that made it that much more difficult to shoot. My still life is also partly reason why I am having a hard time doing and posting the assignments on time.

This Easter holiday after a lovely dinner at one of my favourite places in Costa Brava Mr. Yonder took out a small box of his pocket. Inside was this beautiful ring and he asked me to marry him.

After eight years together I know that this is me winning the lottery. I am in love with this man.

In June we will have our church wedding in a small fishing village north of Barcelona, the same place were he proposed and the same place where he once told me that I am the light that illuminates his life.

  16. Gratulerer Anne...dette var et ett nydelig innlegg.
    I am So happy for you!
    I can see why the still life is so personal for you....however I think your images speak volumes.
    Clean, crisp and focused...we all get an underlying sense of the "beauty of love" that you portray so well.
    Love the detail of the salt and the shell.
