You've captured the lighting beautifully, Joan. xoxo,Loi
Just the right moment~wonderful!It's those small details that make us fall in love with our nests.Thanks for sharing!
That's great! I'm always trying to take photos like that, but they're not often that successful. The placement of the shadow on the chair back is perfect.
That is amazing and beautiful!
Pretty peaceful spot! Love it. Lisa
ha! lovely. what a beautiful spot in a gorgeous room. Joan, since you're an expert it would be great if you could do some antique tutorials. I am teaching myself through history of decorative arts, textiles etc books and I would LOVE to pick you brain. Don't know if you'd ever consider doing something like that?Sherry
Sherry- you are doing the best thing in the world to start- to educate yourself through books and articles. Yes, I've been asked to do a post on how to start antiquing, and I've been slowly working on how I got started and what I did and some lessons I've learned along the way. Don't know when that post will show up, but I do think about it often;)
What a perfect snapshot of our almost perfect weather here in New Hampshire today!Hugs, Tim
Awesome! Great catch!!
Joan,What a lovely photograph. Is that your 25 year old topiary? She's aged beautifully! Karen
it is Karen! She is a very happy girl!
Wonderful photo! Great placement of furniture to allow for this light image.leslie
A simply elegant moment. Thanks for sharing it.
Almost makes you want to take out your gray watercolor and paint it! very serendipitous
Great picture !!!Have a great Sunday evening!!!
Beautiful and with an almost erie quality!
Beautiful! So happy you captured that moment and shared it.;)
It has a "Virgin Mary on Toast" quality to it. A cross-bearing, spiritual presence. And the painting seems to add some kind of relevance to the image. I see faces in clouds too - ha!
Makes me think of the old giant box camera we made in Cub Scouts many moons ago... You'd sit inside it and see an inverted image on the far side of the box.Beautiful!!!Cheers,John
I'm like Donna in that I see a spiritual significance. Christ on the cross, I am the vine, you are the branches, we hold these treasures in jars of clay, I am the light of the world. Biblical references. God has chosen you for something.
It's really just the cross bar shadow from the window;)
What a gorgeous reflection...love the table vignette ~
I love pictures like this, I'm always trying to 'capture' a moment. Great job. I can almost 'feel' the sunlight in this photo.
Joan,Snapshot...the perfect title for capturing the light at that moment and that you took time to pause...and enjoy so we can too! It's the little things, you know?xoannie
ok, this needs to be made into a card or something. wow, what a great shot joan!
I so have to come up your way, very soon! A-M xx
If not for your commenters, I would not have returned to the picture and seen the Cross.I love the picture, I feel as though I can breathe, relax and contemplate. Thank you.
What a pretty vignette. Love how the sun comes through the window.
What a beautiful image and setting. I love how the light reflects off the back of the chair, as well as some shadow. It is really beautiful, thank you for posting!
Love your blog.... just found it and i'm happy!
What a beautiful way to capture an image!Kathysue
It is the tiny details that make your photos so fantastic and gorgeous. Great shot!
