Once Upon a Time . . .
A couple of years ago, once upon a time, some friends and I challenged each other to a year of daily posts--one or more photos that were taken on that day. No archieval safety nets for us. Although it was fun, it was pretty agonizing.
I mention that to say this : this is the 4th day since my last post, and I was feeling pretty sluggish and annoyed with myself that I hadn't taken any photos worth mentioning in four whole days. So in desperation, just before it got too dark to make a photo without flash, I grabbed my SLR and tried to get some images of this flower. Wasn't working. Then I remembered my trusty point-and-shoot, which can do amazing macro work.
So in spite of the fact that I can't hold that little, itty-bitty camera as still as I'd like to, and the light was fading at amazing speed, and there was just a wee tiny breeze, I think these images are okay. Not great, not tack sharp, but nice enough to show off the flower.
I know, I know, you're thinking that there are four almost identical images, and what the heck was I thinking, posting all four of them, when one would have been just fine, thank you very much. Well. I just felt like it! I think that each slightly different angle is interesting. And it's my blog, and I can post what I want. (actually the main reason there are 4 images here is that I couldn't decide which I liked the best)
So there ya go...
