overexposed photo of morning glories


The morning glory vines I’d photographed a few weeks ago twining around the rusty wrought iron fence were now blooming, so I took my camera to photograph on a walk through the neighborhood to Main Street.

However, I had forgotten to change the settings on my camera, which were on fully manual and set for low light photographs, probably my black cats looking out the window in the morning.

All was not lost, however, as I like the effect of the faded but clear areas in the fence and the leaves, and the rather vivid violet in the morning glories, but all the washed out areas where the white barn and light-colored pavement were reflecting the mid-day sun and it just overpowers all the detail.

  1. Lovely… it looks like a beautiful frame for Japanese haiku.

    • It does look Oriental! I went back and took a full exposure image as well and I like that one too, but this one is special.
