too long a day. nah – discard on that. too orange, not likely. too common – says who ? too spent a flower ? too much out of the ditch and along the fence ? too red an eye ? too close for comfort – really. too many excuses – double nah. or perhaps not creative enough ? too vein ? could there be more red veins in this ? or just too much delay before the picture ? … or pictures, 4. too beautiful. oh and it was just long enough a day in the northern hemisphere. the longest day of the season. happy solstice. too!
