fetch the white umbrella

often referred to as the photographer’s umbrella – or light diffuser.  why?  in the garden and many other times full light is too much.  the glare, the reflection of light from the objects we are trying to capture, to make a revealing picture, is obscured.  what is behind the glint in an eye ?  sometimes there is too much light.  and we see that – just that – too much light instead of the object we are trying to show.  even though this flower was pictured at 8:30 AM there was already too much light.  we do have one of those white umbrellas.  i do not often use it.  most days it is both hands on the camera or a hat or my own shadow making a much darker light.  some days the pictures come out monstrously.  this one did that and it came out Monster.  since that is the flower’s name.  it is a parent of many seedlings.   a large and imposing flower… two images.  and enough words.
