Today was busy, so I didn't have a lot of creative time to think of or set up my still life shots
for this photography post.
Instead, I decided just to photograph objects already on the dresser in my little home office.
This room doesn't have the best light.
It's on the second story and has a big cedar tree outside shading the only window.
Yet, in spite of the lack of time and light, the photo above has me smitten.
It's not about my skill, it's just serendipity, a pleasant surprise,
an unplanned, unexpected sweet shot.

I like this one too.
I rather like the focal point on the unopened buds and the key, instead of on the opened flowers.

I hope you don't think I'm boasting when I say I like one of my own photos.
When I sit down to edit them, it's like opening a surprise.
"Oh, that angle or that light or that focal point really worked!", I think to myself,
or at times I'm disappointed at how many photos end up deleted.
On the photos that "pass muster", I try to edit it in a way that enhances the mood of the photo.
