trying something new

Winter Seeds
Sometimes it's fun to try something a little different and experiment with a style you don't usually gravitate towards.  Yesterday while walking around the Tiergarten the sun was shining on these old seed heads turning their stems a beautiful redish brown. Maybe it's all the Spring weather we've been having, but I was feeling quite dreamy lastnight  and when it came time to edit these shots I ended up over-exposing the shots, softening the focus and cross-processing the colours turning everything a pretty girl-ish pink.

These are very pretty - lovely colours.

Stunning photographs. I was thinking of you last night when I was in a restaurant, trying to photograph my food. The lens I have on my camera isn't right for that -- it forces me to stand too far away in order to get a shot off. I thought "Clare would know precisely what to do, how to fix this problem."

Absolutely stunning photographs and work Clare!!
Reminds me of the beautiful pastels of spring (which is much needed right now!!).

SOOOOOO beautiful. I absolutely love it.

@ Brandi: Ha! Thanks, although I suffer the exact same problem. I tried to travel around Australia with a non-zoom lens and nearly cried when I couldn't get everything into my photos. Keep walking backwards is my only tip for that one - or somehow create a picture that looks like only 1/2 of the food is supposed to be in it.

@ Lisa - yes! I think that's the mood I'm in now. I'm 'done' with winter and ready for the next season.

I love the first one! Such a subtle and beautiful pink and blue. I'll have to try to get something like this sometime.

I really love these too, so dreamy... I love all of your photos, they badly make me want to go traveling in Europe!

So, so beautiful. Almost spring-like, and, oh how I need some spring in my life.
