a dinner with candlelight and flowers . . .

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 15 March 2011 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

We were lingering over a meal by candlelight...when I realized I'd almost forgotten
to pull out my iphone and see what I could shoot.
The lighting was low and romantic, so I decided to let this muted shot reflect that.
It was a delicious Italian dinner, by the way.

Last time I set up something like this, the flame caught a plastic flower and the romantic moment was lost in the confusion.
