how many pictures are enough ? the answer to that question is another question. how many stories do you want to tell ? the picture needs to fit the story. looking at today’s picture took me back to a picture from 2012. why ? because some days a comparison is a good thing. most pictures i take are in the garden. the flower, the time of day, the weather, what else is blooming and a couple other things go into the decision of how fast and how much posing goes into any one picture. so part of today’s question is ‘how well does this picture show the flower ?’ is there another picture to compare ? and there is. a picture from several year’s ago taken at not such a sunny moment. the older picture probably does a better job of showing the flower form and allows closer inspection of the details. on the other hand the overcast light may not bring out the brilliance of the colors. today’s story is color and light. sometimes a little glare is a good thing. oh and the flower name Emerald Eye. three images..
