Gayla’s lillies

    Newer Older

    This photo hooked me on the way digital cameras fit my opportunist/documentary/hasty approach to picture taking. I think this was taken with an Olympus, but it does not really matter.

    This is the same wall that is in this recent picture.

    Today is a good day, Boggy, junku, and 52 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      This is gorgeous! The colors in the lilies and on the wall are amazing! I know exactly what you mean about digital. I want a better one, but my small point and shoot is in my purse most of the time, and I get the occasional surprise shot.

      Oh wow I nearly fell off my seat when I found this photo by looking through "Parkdale" tags... Davin didn't tell me

      My Parkdale includes your garden. Thanks for growing it!

      This works so well, especially when viewed in original size. I love the texture of weathered bricks, and the flowers set these off so well.

      Thanks, everyone! I’m so glad this picture has managed to get seen and enjoyed by a few people here.

      When I took this picture I was doing an exercise where I would pick a random spot from a distance, and then go to the spot and shoot until I couldn’t see anything else to shoot. The corner of Queen Street and Noble is not really one of the most photogenic corners, aside from Gayla’s garden.
