Shadow Shots: The Blue Bowl

weekend reflections is right below

I washed the bowl and set it on the counter by the window. Came back and noticed the shadow so of course I had to share ...



The bits of light are from the overhead lighting. The little splotches in the shadow are from beads of water.

I wasn't sure how the rest of the shadows and reflections got there so I started playing with a heat mapping program ...



I quickly grew weary of the instructions and tech talk and just played because it looked pretty.

I really love the original! I'm not a big fan of the programs that give distorted colors. Great shadow shot.

Kay Dennison said...

Both are simply wonderful!!!!! You really are gifted, Dianne!

Wonderful shots.

Patti said...

Very pretty!

I also grow tired of instructions. Playing with colors and shapes is much more fun.

The blue bowl is lovely. I like the droplets in the shadow. ;-)

The lovely blue shadow offers a 3-D shadow, a wonderful feeling of depth. What a great bowl in blue!

haha...I grow weary quickly of tech instructions myself:) Both those photos are really cool. My eyes keep going back to the loop inside the bowl wondering where that is coming from....hmmmm. Neat.

How pretty! I really love the colors in the first version. Gives it a dreamy quality. And it's shiny! :)

Hey Harriet said...

Beautiful blue bowl and shadows but I love the heat mapping colors! I did the same effect a few posts ago. My home is mostly neutrals but playing with pictures gives fun freedom!

Nice visiting with you!

Fine Young Cannibals - 'Blue'

Great song just for you babe x

Ooooohaaaah.
I've had a bad day, yeah.
My hometown is falling down, I'm mad about that.
And people there don't seem to care, I'm mad about that.

Good god, all my tears
There's no denying life
Would be better if I never ever had to live with you,
Blue - it's a colour so cruel

Government has got me wrong, I'm mad about that.
And it makes me feel like I don't belong, I'm mad about that.
It's making life a misery, you would have taken the liberty
Government has got me wrong, I'm mad about that.

Good god, all my tears
There's no denying life
Would be better if I never ever had to live with you,
Blue - it's a colour so cruel

There you go telling lies, it's no surprise
I say a prayer, to make you care,
You wouldn't listen
It's been too long, it's time you're gone
Get away from here
I've had too much - but not enough
It's time you left

Good god, all my tears
There's no denying life
Would be better if I never ever had to live with you,
Blue - it's a colour so cruel
