From Today’s Walk

On my walk today I ran across lilies I’d never seen. I stopped to shoot them and the homeowner saw me and chatted a bit. She said they were “Brazilian lilies” which I’ve now found isn’t correct. They are, instead, called Peruvian daffodils or basketflower. In any case, it was totally new to me!

This is primarily a record shot: I will have to return someday and figure out just how I can capture this in an artistic way. I think the macro lens is not the answer.

On To Mid-April!

I’ve managed to get to mid-April in my “image purge” quest. I’ve found a lot of bad images, but I’ve also found a good number that are deserving of some time and attention. Mostly it’s been great fun to go through these months of trips and walks: the memories are enough to make the quest worthwhile, but the photos I’m finding will be fun to share.

I’d share this particular one as a good night flower except, well, it’s not a flower! The plant (it’s an annual herb and this one was seen at a local park Dan and I hiked in) does have flowers, but these seed pods are the more interesting thing about them as far as I’m concerned.

You might notice there is a I by the name: you will be seeing another .. maybe as early as tomorrow. Time will tell.
