Focus On Life #24

This week's prompt for the Focus On Life challenge over at The Studio Sublime is green. 

This was taken in the garden and I used an Eva Ricci texture on it.

I wasn't sure if this worked or not, but it's growing on me - I quite like that shade of green with the brownish sepia tones.

This is the large platter that lives in my kitchen with the fruit on it - and the occasional good-looking veg! 
 The smaller bowl is from Anthropologie and I love it - I do tend to buy more lemons and limes than I can get through because they look so good in it!

  3. I love these photos! Again my favorite green and the way you composed the photos is beautiful. I like the sepia toned one with the green fruit as the only color! I would be putting lemons and limes in that Anthropology bowl too. It's gorgeous!

  14. Diana, your photos are pieces of art, for sure. I especially like the green and sepia one..it is very calming, even though that shade of green is usually not a calming colour.

  21. Gorgeous - I really like like the combination of colors in your 2nd picture too. I'm also more of a buyer than a consumer of lemons and limes - they're just so pretty, but many do end up getting dumped in a rather shriveled state!
