In and Out

We take for granted certain things. They go in and out of of memory or field of view without a second thought, so we can easily miss something as interesting as this plant with its twists and twirls.


Dissolving?

When talking about using soft focus, one photographer spoke of how things appeared to be dissolving. I prefer to think of it as a softening reality.

It’s all about the light.


Flower in Black and White

Wonderful bush of flowers but the colour is overwhelming, and I was more interested in its shapes.

The bees are hopping. In and out of flowers sometimes in seconds.

This time I toned down the background in favour of the subject as the flower is the point.


An Interesting Flower

I did not know there were white poppies. You learn something new every day!

A symbol of Remembrance Day in November. A sign of summer in June.


Greener on the Other Side

They say it’s always greener on the other side, and it may be, but I like my patch.


Lilies

Lilies are common by the roadside and in gardens. Still eye candy when they blossom.


Before the Wind

Rain and wind will shortly and forever change this last remnant of a dandelion.


Falling

This flower caught my eye. The word that came to mind was falling.


Salsify

Salsify, what a poor name for this daisy (its also called the Oyster Plant). Really terrible names for a lovely bit of contrast in the green fields.


A Witching

Cannot help but think of fairy tales with evil witches when I see these flowers. 


Floral Exuberance

Selective vision, narrow depth of field, call it what you will this bush of flowers deserves a second look.


A Rose

The natural light helped, but I added a slight vignette. I would not want anyone to mistake my subject.


Not a Hawk

Don’t you love it when small birds take on airs.


Spot in the Sun

It’s nice to see a perky flower singled out by the sun.


Weeping

I am sure it will perk up when the sun comes back.

As soon as I saw this my first thought was Jaws. Whether it works best in colour or black and white is another question.
