Leica D-Lux 4: #ds233 The Daily Shoot
Another Daily Shoot (#ds233), with the theme being the color blue. I took a plastic cup outside in the 100 degree heat and placed it on a flower stem in the garden. I wanted a kind of surreal photo, but with the theme blue incorporated in the photograph. The flowers being a lovely orange and organic next to the bright blue plastic cup which is man-made, was an interesting concept to me. It's like the garden represents the beauty of the earth, while the cup is trash littered amongst the beautiful scenery. I then used a vintage camera frame file taken from a Flickr group that specializes in photographing the inside viewfinders of old camera frames. Too cool! They leave the dust in there to give it a cool effect. you can't really see the dust so much in this photo unless you look at the all sizes in Flickr.
