How about this perfectly imperfect pot of johnny-jump ups?I was out in my garden doing a bit of weeding and I spied this sweet little bunch sitting so prettily in the lawn.
Oh how I love thee.
Simple. Imperfect. Perfect. I know I planted some seeds once, but I haven’t seen you for years … welcome back.
Also, welcome to my Hoosier cabinet in its new home—our pantry! Now that’s perfectly imperfect. I had been earnestly purging and organizing and was thinking how I could really use some more shelves. Long story short, hubby helped me drag it upstairs and I spent a blissful day setting up my treasures.
Take a gander at that side lighting! Its from a north-facing window and is my preferred light. I like the whiter, bluer tones and generally steer away from the yellowish tones. It’s a matter of taste but this is how I see it. The lighting in this room is not perfect (but it’s perfectly imperfect) so I use a piece of white foam core to bounce some light back onto my subject. For the above image I used my 40mm lens on a tripod with a slow shutter speed and an ISO of 250. I also used the timer to reduce shake. I ran Kim’s “Melancholy” LR preset and upped the saturation just a bit.
Here’s a pull-back of my scene.
I’ve had this cabinet for over 20 years and it continues to delight me. It truly is the simple things in life that are the best.
