Just had to say, Paul, those chinese lanterns look faintly familiar, they look like Hendrix ,Dylan hair. Bravo, my friend, painting with light now?

Paul Lovering replied:

That is so funny, to be tempted by the camera, and with such a playful subject. Wonderful try, but the brushes are your masters.

Every inch of this photograph is memorable. I won't make the count...others have detailed the wonders. I will say that the fragility and delicacy of these Chinese lanterns are an essay in and of themselves. Thank you for for so much beauty, Paul. f/V

Paul Lovering replied:

Awwwwwwwwww how sensational to receive a comment on photography dear Nancy , how all these comments have made my day , yes a wonderful word " an Essay in and of themselves " gorgeous words , my pleasure my friend.. Paul

Hi Paul. I agree with Linda Lees. Your an artist and your tools can be many. The reflections in glass and colors are stunning my friend. Great capture!! F/V

Amazing

Paul Lovering replied:

Special thank you Bobby .. Paul

You are an artist dear Paul, it doesn't matter what tools you use to create. I think it was well worth eating the cakes, these lanterns look gorgeous reflected in the glass, and that rich cerise flowers serve as a wonderful backdrop. v/f

Paul Lovering replied:

I'm floating like a feather after your super kind comment dear Linda , yes these Chinese lanterns are a beautiful design all made by Mother Earth , thank you so much my friend . Paulx

A beautiful capture Paul! You've captured the light in your photography as you do in your watercolours! Well done! v/f

Paul Lovering replied:

Barbara I thank you for commenting on this photo , how delighted am I ... My special wishes ,Paul

What an exquisite image Paul! I love the subtle reflections, and the delicate detail of the lanterns. The complimentary kick between the lanterns and the violet hydrangea is perfection. You are an awesome photographer as well as painter. I think of creative energy as a fluid thing. It can be poured through any channel that you desire. V/F

Paul Lovering replied:

Awwwwwwwwww dear Jacquelyn your lovely kind words are a great inspiration , I am so thrilled you like , you so made my day my friend , greetings and wishing you a wonderful creative week .

Yes, art everywhere! You didn`t have your watercolours in Bath (!!) and you channeled your art through your camera lens and treat us with this still of golden lanterns and deep pink Hortensia! Thanks for sharing, my friend! Christel.

Paul Lovering replied:

Awwwwwwww dear Christel it is such a thrill to get any comments , but to receive on photography is so special , my pleasure and how thankful my talented friend .. Glass of fizz and cheers Paulx

What a gorgeous photo Paul, in essence art is everywhere. Love the intricate lacy detail of the golden lanterns captured by the sun, and the beautiful tones of the hydrangea, gifts from Bath. Beautiful photo!

Paul Lovering replied:

Awwwwwwwwww yes the lacy detail is just beautiful with these lanterns , I just hoped on my return from our holiday the image would come out the way I had seen , gotta to admit pointing the lens is easier than navigating my brushes , but out of 175 photos this was the only one that I could display , so the art of photography is a Art in it's self .... Thank you for this wonderful comment my dear friend , special wishes Paulx
