As a photographer, I’m often pulled away from what I’m doing by the light dancing off a pretty flower or the angle of the shadows in the garden. Such was the case the other day when I was washing dishes and the light hit the roses I’d cut and placed by my sink. I left the dishes and moved the roses to a different window, set up my tripod, and proceeded to do a study in petals sidelit and backlit by the afternoon sun. Here are some of my results.

If you like what you see, my photography can be found at Fine Art America.
