Weekly Photo Challenge “Illumination”

The subject for the Weekly Photo Challengeis “Illumination”.

Taking photos in candlelight or in an environment lit indirectly with strands of warm white decorative lighting are my second favorites to natural lighting. I guess you could call me a “♥romantic♥ “.

I just ♥LOVE♥ the diffuse glow that it creates! What’s your favorite lighting for taking photographs?

Thanks for taking a peek!


For those of you who have no idea what this is all about, every Friday, The Daily Post at posts a subject for their “Weekly Photo Challenge”. Their bloggers have one week to take photos and post before the following Friday, when a they assign a new subject.

      Thank you! I couldn’t stand the dark, emptiness I was left with once I took the Christmas decor off my mantel. I moved right into winter / valentines, which gave me awesome photo opportunities. :)!

    The rose makes the photo. Symbolizing desire and passion. 🙂

      Agreed! Especially red roses. As I already confessed, I am a romantic♥.
