For the Weekly Photo challenge of Minimalist, I chose 3 plant photos I took the other day at the Franklin Park Conservatory. I don’t really think of plants as being minimalistic because they are quite the opposite. But I decided these compositions suited the theme, at least that was my intention. Minimalism conjures up thoughts of cold and hard, yet clean. At least to me. Perhaps the forms speak louder than words.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular
I chose this photo for my weekly photo challenge of “Angular” because while purpose of the photo was to capture the bloom of the Christmas Cactus before it opened all the way (it looked quite like a graceful flamingo to me), the confluence of the tip of the bloom exactly in line with the edge of its container, with the accidental geometric background was delightful to me. My eye gets pulled in a few directions, my mind wonders about the intent and the purpose; and the angles, normally harsh and cold, are soft like the petals of the flower. I like it.
I’ve been unavoidably detained~ but I have taken a few photos here and there when I could. As I play catch-up here on my beloved blog I am grouping things together in a time/theme fashion. My apologies for my absence. 😉
Breathe In Breathe Out
In contrast to my last post (Signs), I thought a gallery of very calm and peaceful photographs would be a nice juxtaposition. Thinking positive and calm thoughts~~~ *sigh*. Peace be upon you.
30 Shots Later
30 shots (of the sky, not booze) between 8:02:51 and 8:10:59. Just 8 minutes and what a change in color after the sun has set, and then *poof* all goes gray.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure! (Part II)
I guess it seems like everyday is an adventure when you are a bird. Here is a crow diving down oblivious to the linear beauty behind him. Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure!
Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture
All these textures for the weekly photo challenge are from my garden. Yes, the aphids are rather gross, but they’d be a lovely feast for someone! I have never seen them like this. I sure hope that lady bug is hungry!
