A long weekend and some quiet time - I feel like the flower in the image above: Laying down and resting, enjoying the sunshine and letting go off my thoughts ...
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day,
listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky,
is by no means a waste of time.
Light is this weeks theme in Kim Klassens class Be Still 52. The morning light falls softly to our kitchen... I hang a table cloth as a back drop behind a low table with a white, linen cloth, where I layed the flower. I added Oldendays-Lightroom preset by Kim Klassen, together with Roxi Hardegree's Scriptured Overlayer 02, to the flower image.
To get a dreamy look and shallow depth of field to the bowl and the flower above, I selected f/stop 8 and used spot metering. I added Kim's Lightroom preset Oldendays, together with her Waterfront 1-texture.
To the image above I have added Kim's Melancholy-preset and the Waterfront 1-texture.
The preset gives a bit hazy effect with lilac shades.
... May the spots of sunshine find you this weekend,
