Shadow Shots: Yellow Roses

Yellow Roses

I liked the mottled texture of the metal and shadow-on-shadow effect on the wall.

So ... A salvaged bouquet of yellow roses drying in a salvaged, once-silver vase. What do you think about that - whimsical or sad?

Great shot, the decorations adding a nice style to the top of the cabinet. The vase and kettle are antique in style, and the darker metal is offset by the roses peeking over the top. The shadows are artistic, the whole view so stylish!

For me, tarnished silver gives off an air of sadness rather than whimsey. I guess like Mrs. Haversham's wedding cake it seems neglected, if not forgotten. This Shadow Shot is very cool...pulling out wierd emotions!

Ralph, thanks! I'm glad you think so too. I have these on a cabinet in the kitchen, and I really like them there.

However, as you say, Cassie, they are strange and do evoke mixed emotions.

You know me, as an antique dealer, the faded urn is always a fave, you can never have enough old silver, especially to dry a bouquet of yellow rose,also my faves. Your choice and shadow is perfect in my world!!!

I will have to vote for whimsy. The lovely buttery yellow adds one touch of color to slowly aging silver. As I and not as shiny are new silver myself, I like to think as I age, I will always wear flowers in my hair.

Lifeshighway, that's a lovely image, growing gracefully older with flowers in one's hair.

Sweet Repose, I knew you'd be on my side! LOL

Rajesh and EG, thanks for your nice comments!
