Me and the Dirty Dish Drop

It was finally time to go to the café and take down my winter photos. I replaced them with spring flowers. Somehow, as other displays at the cafe come and go, my photos have become nestled right over the dirty dish drop. It's all good, though; I don't pay for the display, only sharing some off any sale.

I know it's crazy to take the trouble to photograph, print, frame, and display photos only to then record the display with my phone, but that's what I do.

Two photos have been sold recently, so I will need to purchase a few more frames and print a few more photos.

Sue thinks that I need a pinkish one to take the place of the red and white tulips at the top of the first column. The tulips can, perhaps, be moved to the centre over the purple crocuses.

Perhaps this photo of heather will work in that spot.

This photo of a single peony will work better in terms of colour palette, but it is not really a spring flower. Perhaps it wouldn't bother anyone, though.

There is also this wildflower, but I don't think the colour quite works for this display, and it is also more of a summer flower.

Sue wants another blue flower for the right column. I think I found one in the neighbours' garden — Chinodoxa aka Glory-of-the-Snow. The plant is only 3 or 4 inches tall, so I had to lie down to get this shot. Good thing I am limber and my joints are all in pristine condition. Or not. Anyway, I did it.

I haven't printed it yet, but I think it will work.

Or this one of crocuses is a possibility. I think purple is close enough to blue.

I also have this trillium that I quite like, but once again, I don't think it fits with this particular display.

Finally, I also like this forget-me-not photo but maybe not as much as the one that's already hanging; I'm just not sure. I do have another venue where I display some photos. Perhaps what I don't use in this display can go in that one.

Gorgeous pictures! I'd be tempted to try some artistic shots of dirty dishes -- maybe some dropping -- to change up the display. But maybe they wouldn't sell or the proprietors wouldn't like it.

Hard to choose from such wonderful photos!

Barbara Rogers said...

Ah, now I see the photographer really coming to the fore. Your flowers are beautiful. And they don't fade away after a few weeks! Displays are another thing, and I have no advice to give. ALL of them, maybe.

I liked them all, especially the crocus and forget-me-nots. Great to read that you have sold several recently too. How many do you frame and display at on time?

Anvilcloud said...

Beatrice. I had 7 on display and sold 1. So I added another and sold it.

Mage said...

Lots of wonderful images. Dare I ask what you sell these for?

Doris Potter said...

Your Forget-me-nots are stunning! I love them the best.

William Kendall said...

The trillium suits me.

Jenn Jilks said...

How very entrepreneurial of you!
They are beautiful photos.

Looks like a great place, I would go there too, as your pictures make me feel I have an impression of what it is like. Love the first bird one the most.

I think your flower pictures are all really lovely. It's a terrific feeling when someone actually wants to give you money for what you have created. I hope you sell lots!
We have our annual Art Show and Sale this weekend. So I'm hoping for cool dry weather but not too warm and sunny, we don't want people to be working in their gardens, we want them to come and browse and buy! I'll be posting pics. I wonder if I'll sell anything. Fingers crossed.
