Dandelion: Sphere and Symmetry

    Newer Older

    Okay, it's the kid in me, perhaps. Dandelions at this stage, which I discovered is a "dandelion clock," enthrall me. Then again, maybe it's not the kid so much as the observer of God's beauty. The symmetry and intricate details make close observation worthwhile. (The kid in me then grabs one and blows with a *puff* to make a wish!)

      The symmetry in flowers (and flowering weeds, for that matter) fascinates me. I've not done many photos in black and white, but I'm wanting to learn to handle those better.
      As for the cropping, I actually trimmed very little off this... kind of like my granddad's regular barber visits, "Just a little off the sides." :-)
      Thank you for your comments.

      Sarra, I have neglected my Flickr account for far too long. Not only do I need to add photos and peruse the beautiful work of others, but I evidently need to respond to comments on mine. Your kind words on my photos, especially your compliment on my dandelion clock, really warm my heart and humble me. Thank you so much for taking the time to look and respond. I look forward to looking over your photos. Blessings.
