All very much past their best….

Well, my flowers of nearly 3 weeks ago really have finally given up the ghost. It was a gloomy day, and I was using a slow shutter speed, high ISO and wide aperture, so not a good image:

  1. But still lovely in their faded gentility.

  2. Desperate, Sue! They’re shouting ‘bin me’ 🙂 🙂

  3. Three weeks is good going. Nobody does this stuff better than you, Sue. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Faded, but lovely, Sue.

  5. Margaret’s comment seemed so poetic. Wish I had those kind of words in me. Beautiful 😀

  6. Getting three weeks out of a bouquet is quite an accomplishment! 🙂


  7. They continue to fascinate. There is value in these long series of the same bouquet. Thanks.

  8. Wow – I LOVE this image – the white backdrop and colors and mood
    I did not see them three weeks ago – but the dried up ones are quite pretty

  9. The form and colours of faded flowers are beautiful and we definitely get a sense of that from your photo. I, similarly, want to capture the fading and fleeting beauty and up until recently chose, like you, slow shutter speed, wide aperture and high ISO. Then somebody posted online a brief class on low-lighting photography and recommended f/11, ISO 100, but an extremely slow speed 4 seconds using the self-timer with camera on tripod. I had a go and will definitely being doing some more later this year when my garden starts to produce flowers again. I’d be interested to see what you think. (Forgive me if maybe you’ve posted some in the past {grandmothers and egg}, but I am a recentish newbie to your Blog)
