FOUND FLORAL

Following breakfast on the portal, I looked down and noticed this interesting graphic possibility. I think it could serve well as a book cover or greeting card image with the lower right area a natural location for a title and/or other text.

I also like the contrast between the delicate flowers and the cracked concrete.

IN THEA’S GARDEN

Another bit of beauty in Thea's garden.

 

THE ENEMY HAS LANDED

But Thea is hot on their trail. I don't think they will be around for long.

 

 

A SIMPLE TREASURE

Not sure what this is. Just a very small plant, a succulent, I guess. Thea's not here to ask, right now. I found it sitting on the kitchen counter, where I find a lot of my inspiration, and, small as it was, it really grabbed my attention. So, of course out came my ever present iPhone from my shirt pocket, and after a bit of tinkering in the Snapseed app, here it is for your enjoyment.

 

WAITING FOR A RIDE

A typical scene on a side street in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

 

FINI

Finito. The end. The last holdout. Iris season is over, almost. Except for that one short, stubborn bit of color.

 

ONE MORE TIME!

Thea tells me the irises have just about run their course for this year. But wait, here's one that I noticed this morning, opening up to give us one more show of extreme beauty.

 

ABSTRACTION

Given lemons, I like to make lemonade. Given lemon water, I like to make photographic abstractions.

 

JUST A DANDELION

Thanks to Thea we have a beautiful garden and it's getting more beautiful every day. I'll be shooting a lot of her beautiful flowers this summer. But today I went for a short walk and encountered these wild dandelions.

Since we don't have a lawn, I was able to appreciate their beauty. I hope you can, too.

Someday I might learn to eat dandelion salad and drink dandelion wine. Maybe.
