I Heart Pollen !

    Newer Older

    Okay - not really. But I am very lucky to not have these Atlanta allergies that 99.9% of people have. :) My little loft is covered in yellow dust though because I've left my doors and windows open 24 hours a day for the past few weeks.

      awesome pollen shot! might as well use what you've got around. I sadly do get affected by the allergies, but at least benadryl works well! I agree.... we need the rain. Maybe time for a rain dance.

      Wow I was thinking about trying to do a series with the pollen, but this trumps anything I could possibly think of. Brilliant! ...and the contrast is great.

      I just came across it on wsbtv.com pollen art slide show. So I could imagine them using it on air. Did you put it up there?

      I'm one of the lucky ones who doesn't have the pollen allergies in Atlanta. Sadly, the rain on Sunday didn't wash quite enough of it away!

      Hi Brooke,

      This is a great photo! I hope it is ok if I use it in my latest blog post on how researchers have discovered that allergy sufferers have a lower risk of brain cancer (I was sure to cite you and link back to your photo). It’ll be up on November 14th.

      My blog is called Real Research, Real Simple and explains research in fun, everyday language. Here's the link if you'd like to check it out (I write the blog for Sunnybrook Research Hospital in Toronto, Canada):
