try

sometimes nature just resists labels.  oh you can make them.  and you can place them.  and you can try to control.  or so you think.  and then things get stirred just enough to make you wonder which is which ?  and sure enough things are not so under control.  two images…

close or far ?

from a distance the strength of light, the glare is apparent.  moving in closer it become less of a factor.  moving in very close it is not eliminated.  however its effect is greatly diminished.  so is glare always a disadvantage ?  in most photography it is consciously avoided.   and in some photography it is actively pursued.  which one pursues ?  sunrise and sunset shots are the exceptions that come to mind.  and if it were not a bit late and i not a bit tired no doubt others would come to mind.  so a glare an abundance of light on the flower is not always a bad situation.  one just has to set and play with the context.  three images…

rocks and air

one comes from close to the ground – Philosopher’s Stone.  A solid yellow and round flower.  the other comes from the air – Sky Captain.  A mostly rounded pinkish flower that is into edges.  two seeds were planted in that hole.  they must have looked weak for some reason.  well both germinated.  one bloomed last year and this one was an unexpected surprise.  not as tall as Sky Captain.  and nowhere like the solid yellow of Philosopher’s Stone.  three images…

glare

what is the difference between a punindrome and a palindrome ?  quit dodging the task and post !   why don’t you take another nap and come back when you are ready to answer the first question ?  what is the technical term of the argument which occurs between two sides of a sleep stunned brain ?  don’t talk to him – he will only insult our intelligence.  besides this has all become pointless.  the spell checker has dropped the ignore option.  there is a pun there and we must move on without it.  three images and all sorts of glares…

something red

a star shape.  the color of red in the garden.  the arms, the sepals of the star are straight.  the petals have a little curve and twist,  and there is a little more twist and turn at the center of things.  three images…
