when the sun returns

it illuminates every petal, every facet of glass, every glad heart in the morning kitchen

Standing next to you and your camera should be an easel, palette of oil paints, and artist. The light in this scene would be a challenge for an impressionist who wants to tackle a still life.

Wow, I like this... the mood of this capture does it for me. Very nice work.

Happy Friday!

The quality of light would be a boon to any artist who would want to capture that scene on canvas!

You have a cut glass bowl filled with flowers in your kitchen? That is really classy!

A still-life par excellence. Somebody needs to paint it! Perhaps Irina over at Moscow Daily Photo!

By the way, we're growing yellow strawberries. Mainly they're ground cover but interesting to try. Let's put is this way. I'll bet the ones you ate yesterday were better!
Don't tell Mr. GDP ;)

Well, that will bring light to your life and a smile to your face! Terrific item for anyone's kitchen (or living room, dining room, den, office, bedroom...well, you get the idea!)

Oh, nobody's ever called me "Dapper Dan." Probably 'cause my name's not Dan. Although I have been called "daffy" and "dumb."

What gorgeous bounty--we have those same flowers blooming here now, too.

Very satinesque. Monet would have this bouquet in his living quarters. -- barbara

So glad that you have some sunshine and your photo shows the flowers like a fine painting with hazy filtered light.

Bon weekend!

Remember what Fred Astaire used to sing: "whe there's a shine on your shoes, there's a melody in your heart..". Must be the same with a beautyful vase in the kitchen!

This makes my day!

Yes, pumpkins in June. Go figure.

Irina said...

Looks like the photographer was very much sun-lit, too. Great.

This is a lovely shot, brattcat. I learned something about flower arranging from it. I usually use tall vases, but this shallower vase looks wonderful.

Dianne said...

This is so... pretty - I love it!

Virginia said...

And it awakened this glad heart.... as always.

Rarely a caption and a title are so fitting for an image, even for your excellent standards! And the image is great, almost like a painting!
