Colors of summer

faces in the crowd

Look closely. Do you see “faces” in the flowers here? They remind me a little of C-3PO from Star Wars. I didn’t notice until I viewed the image on my large monitor.

a Cleome in the neighborhood

one of my favorite spots

Hosta flower

This hosta blossom reminds me of a dancer.


a Cleome from the inside


The remnants of a zinnia. Before joining Flickr, I wouldn’t have considered a shot like this. But anything can be beautiful if you put some thought into the composition. There are some fantastic shots of dandelions on Flickr!


I don’t know if this is a weed or flower, but I like the way the “spires” appear to poke through a fog. It’s just a very shallow depth of field.

One last cleome. I can’t help it. I’m drawn to them.

Happy weekend, everyone!

    All look very lovely bright. But I prefer the first. Orange feeling bright and fun.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Your photos are absolutely incredible! You have real skill behind the lens. What camera are you using? I’m in the market for one myself.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog last week. I appreciated your comment. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! I use two different cameras: a Nikon D90 and a Canon Powershot G10. The Canon is a point-and-shoot, but a very nice one. It’s good for when I don’t want to carry a big camera and when I want to be unobtrusive.

      Canon is supposed to be the best for digital photography, but I’ve had a Nikon for years and just prefer it.

      And, you’re welcome. I think your writing is excellent.

Leave a comment if you wish. I love hearing from my readers.
