Morning Eye Candy: Vintage

Posted in Photography on January 15 2014, by Ann Rafalko

There’s something about this photograph that reminds me of the kind of old botanical print you can find hidden at the back of a good thrift store. It looks as if it was printed originally in black and white, and then the colors were filled in by hand with watercolor. This is a very long winded way of saying, I really like this one!

I went searching for southern magnolia online and happened on this image...the description is perfect. Lovely.
