Bashfully passing through
As peeping, floppy poppies
Leap and dive like dashing
Inspired by Sonel’s Corner photo-editing challenge ,vintage’, I chose to photograph a beautiful vintage,silk gypsy shawl given to me by my mother many years’ ago. We share a love of antiques and vintage items,anything unusual. I love old powder compacts and jewellery.
The cropped photos were edited with Snapseed.
Top left photo was edited with a grunge filter. I liked the different texture of the fabric looking almost like denim. The second is the original.
Bottom left photo is the original and next to it I edited with a vintage style layer.
The above photo of my coveted vintage shawl was edited with the Picsart app. I used a vintage border to enhance the feeling of age. I like to wonder who used to own this shawl. Maybe I’ll build a story around it. Maybe you could too…I hope you enjoy it anyway.
Victoria’s dictionary of flowers suggests that orange roses represent ‘fascination’. Do you feel that the shawl’s designer meant people to be fascinated by whoever is wearing the shawl?

The spirited woodland
Towers of ivy
Peonies standing proudly.
Old Boots and clogs
Hide amongst old oaks,
Waiting to be found.
Pregnant with blossom.
Whilst they whisper
Their wildest thoughts,
