Flowers on the Table

Same flowers, different spot.

These are the flowers I bought at the beginning of the summer.  They had been sitting in a pot on the floor of my front porch until I brought this antique table outside.  Walking by with my camera, I noticed the colour of the table complemented the flowers, and I imagined that a shallow depth of field with give an interesting result.

I was right.

I love the softness of the table’s edge in the foreground, with the flowers spilling out over it.  Just enough detail to show its age, but blurred so that it blends with the greens of the leaves. 

I have photographed these flowers before, but this has to be my favourite shot.
