Sunday Stills~Black and White or Sepia

~A fearful woman never feels free.~
~Judy Forte 1899~

It's been so busy lately that I've missed quite a few Sunday Stills photo challenges. But, I've been wanting to get some shots of my pretty Irises and thought they might make a good subject. There was some nice lighting this mornin' so, I went out in the yard and took these in my slippers! Their shadows on the side of the house seems to add an extra dimension. I opted for the sepia look which I applied in PhotoShop Elements.

Lovely irises. The shadows give it the 3D effect.

These are gorgeous! I love the shadows and depth created in these. My mother grew these flowers everywhere and after she died, people came and asked if they could take some of the bulbs to replant in their own yards before my father sold the house. Beautiful Sunday Stills. : )

I posted photos of our irises a few weeks ago. Like the shadow effects, too.

I love the look of the first shot, shadows, and color. Perfect in Sepia.
