This rainy day has me getting a bit more done on cards than usual. I’ve now assembled a box of Abstract Flora. Most are still recognizable as flora … which makes me think maybe I should have called the box Almost Abstract.
Hm. Might have to rethink the name, right?
Ah, it’s the day after eating too much and I am being punished. It’s my own doing, of course, but the neck is achy, the stomach unhappy, and my brain is in a true muddle. I do believe a walk is in order … if I can manage to get myself moving, that is!
Here … have a spot ‘o green for your day:
First Shot: Cactus with Morning Dew, 12.23.14
I am most comfortable with the macro lens. I just love the “Small Of It”, I guess. (I talk a lot to Dan about the “All Of It” when it comes to landscape photography. Yes, I do shoot landscapes, but I find them quite overwhelming much of the time.) I knew I had to “get back on the bike”, as one might say, after yesterday. I went to bed last night feeling rather unsuccessful, and that’s a bad place to be.
Off I went this morning, on one of my little walks. It wasn’t a long one — not quite five miles this time — but I ended up at a favorite house. The home owner has lots of succulents in the front: clearly a water-wise yard! This time of year she decorates her succulents with Christmas ornaments, and I had deliberately walked that way to see what she’d done. Fortunately she was in front, so I could ask if I could roam the yard. She said yes, and I had a wonderful time.
This is just my first shot of the day … no ornaments yet, other than the sparking dew. The plant really glistened in the sunlight.
I came home happy.
