Word and Image

Nice light

I’ve got this plant that produced two flowers. Yes, I could count ‘em. The first fell off. It just broke off its stem and fell to the driveway below. The second survived to bloom more than two weeks. That’s nice. It sat a bit beneath another container. The stem was so long the blossom crowded against the container above. Got the picture? You could congratulate me for staging a spectacular image of this flower. Thank you in advance. However, it was a serendipitous shot. The shadow from the container above darkened the background while the low morning sun from the east provided the rim lighting. And, with everything else digital these days, I shot multiples of this flower. This was the shot that you see. In the days of “slides” I would have surely missed this one. As with everything else lately, I was redundant in order to capture the moment. I shoot till I’m satisfied except that sometimes I don’t know what I’ve got till I edit. It makes me an amateur. But sometimes even a blind squirrel gets a nut.
