First Picnic Of The Summer: Part II

You might have noticed that my last post was titled “First Picnic Of The Summer: Part I” but I didn’t actually mention what the next part would be. While the last post had general pictures of the day and of our outfits, this post is going to be filled with more artsy, detail shots. We had fun playing with the cameras that were available and working on our photography skills.


First, my feet. I wore my blue silk stockings and Astorias from American Duchess.


More feet. It’s fun to play with the focus of the photo in these detail shots.




The willow and the trained skirt have similar qualities that make this photo neat.


I enjoy how the branches fill in the background space and create complimentary curves with the skirt.


This was intended to be casual bench lounging, but it looks very Sleeping Beauty c. 1900 to me. Where’s a prince when you need one?


I love the longing reach for the reflection of the willow. That’s a good metaphor for life sometimes… reaching for reflections.


This is pretty, too, with the skirt and tree having similar qualities. Also, I love the pop of red on the ground. Could be that those are flower petals… but I actually think they’re the remains of some child’s balloon animal.


Playing with the focus on some lovely roses.


Baby ducks! I enjoy that they are not what your eye is first drawn to in this photo and I like the super bright green of the tree.


My favorite: a close up of the allium flowers!
