Last Of The Last!

Last of The Last
The last of the last! Yes, the last surviving peony in my daughter's yard. Doesn't it look delicious? The last tease until next season! I know you must be thinking, enough already with the peonies, but I just can't seem to help myself. Have I mentioned just a few times that I love them so???
A few more of my old props in the background, I photographed this still life from several different angles, somehow, magically the peony became the focal point. Big surprise! 
I used my 50mm lens to create the clarity in the front with a bokeh background. The possibilities to photograph here are endless. I will move outside as soon as it stops raining and the temperatures rise a little. It was in the low sixties yesterday, a little hard to take since I left the nineties, with no rain in sunny, Florida. Part of the charm here in New England, however. I will continue to search for old props and there are some roses outside my window that are just begging me to photograph them. We shall see what tomorrow brings??? 
Have a wonderful day! 

Pin It!

Thanks for stopping by my blog Rosemary, I see you love peonies and using textures also!
You're on the other side of the country from me, but I can relate to your comment about the rain and low temps!
That's about all we've had here in the PNW this spring:(
I'm looking outside today at the rain beating down what's left of my peonies!

Rain here in NY too Rosemary, and lots of it :-(
What a beautiful photograph this is, and I could never tire of peonies!
