Something a little different this week, as this image is from last year during one of my visits to Tower Hill Botanic Garden. I’m holding back the best shot from this week for the Tuesday Photo Challenge (this was last week’s).
I found this flower rather amusing, as it was surrounded by a wealth of real flowers, and many people didn’t even notice what made these beauties different…
It’s amazing what can be done with a bit of spray paint 🙂
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mk III using a EF 24-105mm f/4L lens. Exposure settings were 1/160 second, f/10 at 400 ISO.
On Saturday, I was challenged by MarieMathilda to take on the ‘Three Day Quote Challenge’. As this is one of those fun things that you can do all sorts of things with, I am happy and excited to accept the challenge.
The rules of this challenge are simple:
Post three consecutive days.
You can pick one or three quotes per day.
Challenge three different bloggers per day.
Before I post my selection for quote of the day, I would love to nominate:
The image on page 6 was shot on September 5, while I was waiting for my car to be serviced. It had just rained and I sauntered over to the Panera close to the dealership to get a bit of breakfast.
After a (somewhat) healthy power breakfast with a cup of hot green tea, I was walking back and rather liked the sky that presented itself, so was looking for an opportunity to photograph it in some fashion.
As it happened, the dealership had planted a nice row of sunflowers along the edge of their lot to dress things up a bit. I liked the idea of juxtaposing the sunflower against the doughnut shop and the sky; a bit of a 3-way contrast between sun and rain, as well as healthy sunflower seeds vs killer doughnuts. A bit of finding the position to line up flower, shop and sky, and you see the result here.
