If only I could bottle the sunshine

By helenlinda
These belonged to my mother and at one time contained some of her favourite perfumes.
They are part of a whole load of "stuff" that I have brought back from school that was used for displays. I have them sitting on a very sunny window ledge and took a photo of them to upload as an early Saturday Shadow image.
We are off for a short break tomorrow, and so I am hoping this wonderful sunshine will go with us SmileSmile
I have removed the messy background and added what I hope resembles a hazy look to this sunny shot SmileSmile
Thanks for looking

A superbly crafted piece of work, the diagonal perspective adding both interest and a wonderful line of sight, whilst the well defined shadows add to the charm of the piece. Wonderfully presented

This is very nice indeed Helen. What really interests me are the light patterns against the shadows.

Lovely shapes, shadows and light filtering through them. Wish they had colourful liquid in them, but that would have been another photograph then.
