Default Stealing Beauty II : "White Roses and Afternoon Tea!"

I hope you visited the first image in this series, here.

So now, I share another shot of Kate. The tea service, (my wife's special gift), I and smuggled out the house, wrapped in a sweater in my camera bag. I was going to balance it on her scarf, but lost my nerve, LOL! After all, I couldn't claim the china opened the cupboard, jumped of the shelf and smashed on the kitchen tiles! One has to compromise from time to time.

Instead, I thought of teatime in the country side, in the England's Green and pleasant land".

Of course, I had to investigate a monochrome version! The experience was gratifying! Hope you like this too!

Be assured that skin of shoulders is not blown out in the in the full size picture, the JPG just seems a little white, that's all.

Oh, such a pretty pose. she reminds me of a Grecian statue that is pouring water from an urn, perhaps as a libation for the Gods. :-) Beautiful.

I think the B&W version gives attention to the subject that she deserves where as the color version not enough.

Hi,

that reminds me of Art Nouveau paintings ... Very subtile and dreamy ... I prefer the colourversion for its warmth and sensitivity.

Fahim,

I promise you that I don't use a calculator or abacus! I just find the roses!

This is lovely. As is typical for me, I prefer the black and white. Both versions are beautiful.
