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.
Here is a nice look at the koi pond water feature at the Franklin Park Conservatory. They removed some big glass art balls that were by Chihuly. They also removed all the damn coins people threw in there. (Don’t throw stuff in ponds. It is harmful to the fish.) It is easier to see the fish now too. They look really happy, their big selves swimming gracefully. Mr. Koi, seen in photos 3 and 4, even did a happy roll over. Too cute. Koi so happy they play! This is as close to their view as I can get without being very disruptive and probably ejected from the conservatory. And I wouldn’t like that!
The super cool curvy cloud was on the edge of tornado producing storms that occurred about 60 miles north of my house on June 12th, 2013 . The edge came right to the edge of my neighborhood. It was pretty cool. It felt like an enormous spaceship floating above. The photos do not do it justice. The 3rd photo is from yesterday, glass by Dale Chihuly, at the Franklin Park Conservatory. Pretty darn cool if you ask me.
