Dragonfly Stoneware Jug

Recently I promised some online friends a photograph of one of my favorite stoneware jugs. This jug has a dragonfly blue slip design. The story behind this jug is that I lost it in a divorce and found it later in an antique shop and bought it back. How about that? I was exuberant--literally jumping for joy. Years before I had painted a picture of this jug with the two round wooden boxes and to get the jug back to sit with the wooden boxes again is to me amazing.

The first image was taken this afternoon, while the bottom one was done in the morning. Differences in lighting and composition can change a photograph's emotional impact.

Unfinished Business

Got busy shooting this morning and am having a blast. Would like to enter one, or both, of these in upcoming competitions. Will have to clean up, then decide on title. Not sure if I want to post on Facebook...debating.
