comp perception~

"It is one of the commonest of mistakes to consider that the limit of our power of perception is also the limit of all there is to perceive." C.W.Leadbeater hmmm~~ I made one of the commonest mistakes.. thinking that my perception... of this weeks lesson ... was all there was to perceive. it was composition and perspective... not just perspective... As I had incorrectly thought. it is always good to read thoroughly... and double check... I should have taken my own advice...{smiling} then I thought... after realizing my error... that still life doesn't have to be created with many objects... and I stood fast in my minimalistic approach... and then switched modes quickly ... in a lame effort to cover ... and display the baby socks I just knit.... a little gift for a new baby boy... Handmaiden yarn in shades of pale baby blues... and muted browns..perfect colors... and a stack of some muted blues and browns for a little something sewn as well... My perception is that I may have saved this ?? or am I failing again to consider all there is to perceive? Either way... it was another fun challenge... and Easter Greetings to all who celebrate!

Oh my dear Theresa....did you not see the "there are no rules" addendum? I always latch right on to those phrases! I love your approach....always! That is what I love so much about your photography...it doesn't follow anyones rules just your heart and thereby speaks to other hearts as well.
I love the jellly bean blur...oh my I am in a sugar coma just looking at them!
Those baby socks are heavenly as well!
Enjoy your Easter Sunday!

Rachel said...

I can't say about the actual lesson but your photo shoot hit it's mark for composition and perception in my opinion! I'm drawn to the blurry shots I'm seeing.

Love the socks!

Kristi said...

Beautiful images t! Happy Easter to you! ♥

gonzomama said...

sweet little baby socks! so hard to resist : )

i especially loved the tricycle bokeh and the gorgeous light that was in each shot.

Alison said...

The wonderful thing about lessons, is they teach us something and we come out the richer for having learned them. And the sense of achievement at having understood, or grasped the message, that is the joy and wonder of them.

The socks are beautiful - lovely soft muted colours :)

Maegan Beishline said...

I think you did great, Theresa! I love that yummy jelly bean bokeh! And those sock...*sigh*

I hope you had a wonderful Easter!

Yvonne said...

Beautiful baby socks you knitted there! I love the little trike in the background & the lighting is beautiful! And the first unfocused shot of the jellybeans is lovely too - such pretty colours, make me hungry :)

Once Upon A Parent said...

I love these shots! Wonderful work! I really love the jelly beans. Wow!

I love the jelly beans. Beautiful reflections off the candy and I love how they are spilling out over the wooden table.

Such beautiful photos and lovely words and sublime easter goodies (I love the box cones). I love handmaiden yarn. Reminded me that I have some and need to do something with it.

Sarah said...

Happy Easter to you - I'm enjoying knitting simple baby socks - the perfect way to use up ends of sock yarn and so so cute

Cindy Garber Iverson said...

Well, I LOVE the perspective of the socks with the out-of-focus toy tricycle in the background. I'm without words to describe what I like about it (and that's hard for me, hee hee).

Knitting Out Loud said...

Happy Easter! And happy spring. The socks are lovely. We can never perceive all there is to perceive.

Mr Puffy's Knitting Blog: said...

Well, I can't perceive that there was anything wrong with your composition - LOL I do thank you for the link as *someday* I would like to learn more about photography!

Beautiful baby socks ~ lucky little baby boy :)
