The Picture within the Picture

I was walking through the village of Selo pri Bledu in Slovenia early one morning, and it was cloudy, perfect light for details photographs of the village and the architecture. I discovered this one farmhouse with amazing geraniums spilling out of hanging boxes and was delighted to see the strings of dried corn so perfectly nestled below them. The lead photo is the first image I made. I just knew I wanted to fill the frame as much as possible with the two elements – flowers and corn. I made the second image to show you what the big scene looked like. Not a bad scene either, but for me, it’s was all about the colors and textures and the detail shot expressed that. It’s often that you’ll find a great picture within the bigger scene.

I wonder what this scene looks like at the end of the winter season, after the winter cold and snow does the geraniums in, and when all the dried corn has been given to the farm animals in the barns! I’m glad I was there to capture it while it was fresh.

thanks for visiting,
