Faking it

I made photos of a bunch of things in the house during lockdown. Some that looked appealing in the viewfinder resulted in disappointing photographs. Some, however, turned out pretty well.


The three photos today are of a small vase containing some artificial flowers (I don’t know if they’re supposed to represent an actual species of plant or if they’re just some kind of made up blooms – I know little about plants). Framing them against the out-of-focus yellow wallpaper has created a nice colour contrast.


Considering the fact that flowers are not something I readily turn to as a subject for photographs, I’m very happy with these – artificial or not.

    1. Thanks Jim. I’m not sure how much credit I can take – it was mostly down to my faith in the F80’s meter. πŸ™‚

      The 12-year expired film has held up nicely – especially given that I’m pretty sure it was never stored in a fridge or freezer.
