DP Photo Challenge: State of Mind
“A style all her own” … That was the text under my high school year book photo. Since the rules of year book captions state that you can’t say anything negative about your fellow classmates, that is about as close to saying….”She is a bit weird”… as you can get.
In high school being different, wasn’t a good thing, but now I embrace that weirdness and it can be demonstrated by my state of mind. I love winter at the beach (perhaps not normal). It is quiet, it is cooler, there are limited numbers of tourists around and I can happily take pictures of critters that seem to take on human characteristics. So here what they say to me:
I’m really glad that I’m not the only one having a bad hair day.
Who are you looking at?
And while not a critter, who can resist a February blooming yellow rose that says: Life is good.
There you have it…my state of mind today.
Here is my entry for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Flowers Purple or Blue
Here is a purple water lily from a visit to Epcot.
Purple crocus from our backyard in Pennsylvania…..note the photographer’s shadow….dang.
Here are some purple petunias from our flower pot this past summer.
And lastly, purple wisteria from one of the neighbor’s yard.
I surprised myself with the number of white flowers that I had in my archives. Here are a few …. which one do you like best?
Orchard Morning Glories
Not sure what this one is…it’s a shrub, very fragrant flowers and wispy seed pods when the blooms fade
Okay, it is a butterfly….but the little flower is white. : )
Cee’s Photo Challenge: Orange and Green
The flowers I’ve seen all orange and green….Butterfly on milkweed and a pretty hibiscus.
Let me give you two for this challenge:
First here is a pretty pink rose in full bloom.
Second is a close-up of a butterfly (or it it really a moth) sipping nectar from a bloom.
Here is a shot from a few years ago that I think fits the “abstract” category. Plus they are purple crocus. What could be better for a beautiful Spring day?
Yellow isn’t a color that I normally associate with the beach. I thought I would have difficulties finding even one photo for this challenge, but I found several. Let me know your favorite. : )
