Jellybeans

By chase
I love Jellybeans, except for the coffee flavoured ones which go in the bin.......yuk Wink

A 3 frame HDR image, lit by daylight camera left.
Combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop with a texture behind.

The old scales belonged to my Nana and still work well although a wee bit past their best now. Still, they have lovely texture and form.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Lovely playful still life Janet. I like the colours of the beans against the muted colour of the scales and background, and the brightness of the whole image. Splendid scales too.

This works so well Janet, with the jellybean colours just adding that bit of oomph!!! Love the scales and the well-worn texture.....even the backdrop is almost colour coordinated with the jellybeans, lol!!!!

Nice one👍👍!!

I have a vague recollection of a similar set of scales many years ago but they're long gone now.

You never fail to amaze Janet - so much trouble taken to set up one image.
The scales are wonderful and the Jelly Beans - genius to help us forget all the
cares of the world at present.

Nice arrangement of the objects.

Of course...Is there another Wink
I remember very well buying a 'quarter' of whatever it was or even two pennyworth (2d) of sweeties from the newspaper hut down the road.

My mother used kitchen scales just like these! 😃 Think it needs another weight to balance those scales...or you could take out a few beans and send them over here... 😁😋👍

Love those scales Janet....I have a similar set but your's look much robust, although I do use them.
Not a jelly bean fan I have to say ....have you any Dewdrops? 😋😋

Thanks everyone.
Joline, Somnath and Diane, wonderful to have your UAs, many thanks.

Wow, Dewdrops, I had forgotten about those. Lots of 'old fashioned' sweeties are no longer sold....some are making a comeback though but don't taste the same as when I was a kid.
There is a great shop in Lincoln City that sells old fashioned sweeties, you can ask for a gift basket from the year you were born yum....sherbert dibdabs and cola cubes Wink
Delicious memories.
