Day 146 Happy Little Plant

This is the first REAL flower to blossom in my garden. I should have waited until tomorrow to photograph it because it has many blossoms that will open by tomorrow...but, I needed a photo today, so I got the edge that is in bloom. The color is so bright it almost hurts my eyes. It just shouts out that winter is finally over!

  2. Love that plant in the garden. We have jumped from winter into the dog days of summer over here. Crazy!

    And I don't know if you would see my response to your recent comment so I just wanted to post it here too. :)

    I love that you shared your opinion. And perhaps my sarcasm didn't go over well. I certainly didn't mean to imply that I was stuck w/pix of "an unattractive woman." Quite the opposite. I love the top pix of my friend. And the 2nd one of her is my favorite too. I guess b/c I KNOW her, though. And what her art is. These didn't really portray enough of what I wanted it to about her. She is a silly, quirky, and talented woman. I felt these pix were too serious and somber w/the dark background. They didn't send the message I was hoping for. It's hard when you KNOW the person.

    I actually turned all of these in and the teacher agreed that the top pix don't show enough. She wanted me to pull out more. To make it clearer that she is an artist. Or perhaps just take a pix of her hands working on a piece.

    I didn't choose M b/c she's beautiful. I chose those pix b/c I felt like they portrayed more of who M is. I felt they showed "strength" and "confidence." And that is what defines her. Does that make sense?

    Thanks so much for sharing your opinion. :)

  7. I love how you processed and cropped these. Sometimes I think I get in a rut of always keeping my photos the same size to maintain consistency, but your post reminds me that I should crop for the photo and not for uniformity.

  8. I love Pinks, the scent is like warm clove oil, not sure if you call them Pinks across the pond.
