I found these flowers while out on a short walk yesterday (Saturday.) I’m not even sure what they are, but what struck me was the way this picture is symbolic of the turn of the seasons; there are still a few flowers around, but there are seed heads and fruits, too. Here, they sit side by side, just for now.It's kind to share!
This past week was a very busy one for me, but I did get a moment or two to visit a favourite haunt of mine, which I find is a good ‘thinking’ place. It is a nature reserve on the site of an old colliery. Scenes like this one seem to symbolise the calm superiority of nature over man. I wonder if, just sometimes, at midnight, you might hear the clanking of wheels and the hiss of steam?It's kind to share!
OK… So today (Saturday) was the day of the local flower show. This caught my eye as I stepped out of my car. I’ve given you the whole image, as I took it – this isn’t cropped. I think the negative space adds impact. Somehow, what I saw seemed strangely symbolic of modern life; one solitary fallen,but beautiful bloom left abandoned in the hustle and bustle of setting up the exhibits. A strange poignancy – what do you think?It's kind to share!
One of the fascinating parts of learning (by experience) about photography is finding out what a difference the direction and character of light makes to the way we see any object. Early yesterday (Saturday) morning, I went outdoors into strong sunlight. This was coming from a low angle, and the Sun in a clear sky is almost a point source of light. now, this is often horrible for portraits, but it gives punch to pictures of many ordinary things like these apples.
I really am the last person to talk when it comes to getting up when I don’t have to, but morning light really is amazing!
