Project 365: The Run-up to Valentine’s Day

And what a week it was! Work, finishing on a high at college for half term, and, erm, yes, some photos…

365-150208February 8: Frost defines so many things in a beautiful way. Flowers, spiders’ webs, leaves… and here, just the bark on a log.

365-150209February 9: And it wouldn’t be February, without snowdrops. My mother’s birthday… [sigh] She always loved them.

365-150210February 10: Good window displays are lovely at any time. This one, by an enterprising florist in a small country town, looked terrific at night!

365-150211February 11: Real, genuine, no teapot-lidding, green shoots! seen here on Salvia officinalis. (You what, mate…? Sage, to you. Oh, yeah…)

365-150212February 12: Do you ever get that sort of stale feeling? Nothing to photograph today? Well, it hit me on this particular Thursday. Now, when that happens, the best thing to do is to grab something really ordinary, and take a close look at it. Perhaps try shining light through the object, rather than just at it, as I did here. I mean, you can’t get much more ordinary than a sweet pepper, now, can you? But a true fresh look is never ordinary…

365-150213February 13: …and I never tire of what rain does to things, either, somehow. Especially at night.

365-150214February 14: OK, so it was Valentine’s Day. Roses are red. Big deal. But crocuses are purple, as you can see. This is the same crocus as the one in ‘My Sunday Photo’ yesterday, but it’s not the same picture. That one was taken by natural light only, but I used flash for this one. You may care to compare the two, and see what you think.

And that’s it, till next week!
