A Little Romance

"That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
And the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."
                ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

   It is interesting how photographs turn out differently at different times during the day (of course, you are saying, why wouldn't they?!). To my eyes the light seems the same in the morning as it is in the afternoon and yet when I take pictures in the early morning and edit them later they are always covered in a hazy golden glow. I took some pictures the other morning of some treasures in my home and took my time editing them. I like how full of light they are! I like the contrast of soft and bright! I have always loved soft colours in a house - ivory walls, painted or pale wood furniture and vintage crystal. But I am also finding that I like, here and there, to see something a tad richer in hue. A large gold frame, a French chair in it's natural finish, an old-fashioned still-life on a darkened background, or a piece of antique china with bright flowers painted on it. The contrast draws the eye and creates a very romantic atmosphere. Here are a few photos I took in the early morning light in my home with that little touch of romance...

This antique Art Nouveau jewelry box and the Prussian teacup below are both in my Etsy Shop!
