Been shooting some more still  life, composed , or staged shots recently.  I  stopped for a while as I wasn't getting anything I really enjoyed then Kim Klassen dropped the "celebration" prompt, and suggested juxtaposing peonies, their wonderful softness, against concrete.  For some reason I thought .... I can do that?   I have lots of concrete and at the time had a few of my beautiful white peonies.  I leave you to decide whether the exercise was accomplished... But I like them... grin. 

 Then I had to break the pattern , grin, and try the rocks... and?  I'm thinking it is hard to pick a favourite!  And now the peonies are done... I still have them to look at!  A bonus don't you think?
