Project Blue: Kitchen Window Sill

The striped porcelain rose-petal bowl belonged to my grandmother. I like the way it's reflected in the mason jar.

Your photos have a quality about them that looks like they should be on cards or in a magazine advertising something. I would definitely but that bowl!! Beautiful work. And I love that it has some meaning.

The flag shot below is stunning. It took my breathe away too!

Beautiful photo. The bowl is pretty and both reflected and contrasted against that wonderful cobalt blue, is really stunning. I read lacey's comment above - and I had been thinking that the photo looks like something out of House Beautiful. Lovely and elegant.

I love how you can see the bowl's reflection in the jar! The light is doing some amazing things.

I love the light coming through the jar, that cobalt blue positively glows.

This is stunning with the light - what a gorgeous shot of bowl and jar!
I have to agree with everyone else-magazine quality art.

Thanks for the lovely comments, everyone. Yes, Kim, those are rose petals. My husband grows roses. We enjoy them on the vine and bush, in vases, and then, when they're fading, we let the scent linger on by putting the petals in a bowl. :)

I missed this one when I commented on the teapot. I have to echo Lacey. As I browse your images, I'm taken by the way you see the world around you. I shall need to come back and see more.

Much to like in this shot. My wife cherishes her colored glass bottles handed down from her grandmother, so I understand a little of the sentimental meaning, too.
