Sort of Easter-y?

Here you see an attempt to create an artistic-looking photograph (which I'm not sure is entirely successful).  On my travels to other blogs, I am often struck by the professionalism of the photography.  I am of the 'point and click' school of photography, and if you start talking to me about shutter speeds and ISO, my eyes glaze and I drift away...  So, I have always wanted to be able to take lovely photos, but without all the 'geeky' stuff (apologies to real photographers out there).  I have recently upgraded to a very easy 'point and click' camera which does everything for me, short of choosing the view, and I am happy with the quality of the images.  This picture shows a primrose, part of a glass candlestick, a beheaded tulip (thank you Mr/Mrs Snail/Slug) and a lovely little Easter decoration which I bought at the National Centre for Craft and Design. 
I think this is about as artistic as I'm able to get, but it is sort of Easter-y, isn't it?


  1. It's very Easter-y! I love your little decorated bird-house! I am with you on the whole complicated camera thing - I am ashamed to say most of my blog photos are taken on my phone and are all of the point and click variety. This probably explains why they are not always very good but they do upload easily which is convenient.

  2. Thank you for your comment. I really like your blog photos so your phone obviously does a good job too (along with your artistic eye, of course).
