Vintage Blue with a Touch of Lemon

I felt I needed a bit of colour this week and because I couldn’t find any flowers I liked, I bought some lovely Meyer lemons. I piled them into my big old glass cookie jar with the blue stripes and blue lid, and added one vintage blue mason jar in the background.

What a bright spot in my otherwise white and grey wintry world. When I went back and looked over my last few posts I was struck by the lack of colour in them. Not a bad thing, just an observation … .

As I mentioned in my 14 in 2014, I’m trying to get a handle on LR. It’s really only the organizing part that I can’t (couldn’t) seem to grasp. But I decided to start over with a brand new catalog and simply go from there. I ‘m pleased to say that something has “clicked” and so far, so good. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  1. Beautiful shots Barb, I also have a hard time with the organization in LR. I love the software but keeping the organization straight is just not easy for me especially when I go to making a collection or a smart collection it just hasn’t clicked yet. Hope it clicks like it has for you.

  2. Your pictures are so nice and soft, love the spring colors.

  3. Gorgeous , beautiful, crisp color! The perfect combo of blue and yellow

  4. First of all, I love this photo! Maybe because I love lemons? Anyway, I have the darndest time with organization in LR and they say that that is the best reason to use it. HA!

  5. Oh, this is so lovely. What a pick-me-up for a drab January day.

  6. beautiful colour & focus Barb.
    Happy New Year!

  7. I just love these photographs, Barb!
    Although we have some really beautiful sunshine today, the windchill is well below 0, so it’s a little tough to be outside enjoying it for very long. Hopefully tomorrow! :-)

    Have a great day!

  8. Gorgeous images, as always Barb. Blue is my favorite color and those yummy looking lemons fit so well in your scheme. I always look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  9. oh barb this is just so lovely…the soft blue and pale yellow. i’m with you…needing some color! and hooray on LR! i know it’s a little tricky at first to understand. but i don’t know what i would do without it now!

  10. These are just stunning barb, so soft….and enticing! :)

  11. That is a great idea Barb, such a sunny colour and it goes so well with blue. I’m glad you are getting the hang of Lightroom.
