My computer just upgraded itself, resulting in a “new and improved” way to handle photos. Grrr! One good thing that came out of the struggle was discovering this shot. I can’t remember the circumstances, but as I look at it closely that seems to be a lilac. It has been maintained much more carefully than mine, reinforcing the idea of common plants with uncommon beauty. Here I join Anna (Flutter and Hum) for her Wednesday vignette. I have certainly benefitted from looking around for a little corner where everything comes together in an interesting way. It doesn’t even have to be garden-related (even hortheads occasionally look elsewhere for inspiration).
“….common plants with uncommon beauty” What a great quote, Rickii! I love it – it could be a book title, if you’re ready for book #2. 🙂 Great photo too – I love the play of shadows.
As I look back, shadows have played a big part in vignettes that attract me.
Don’t you just love technology!? But I’m glad your problems at least had a bright side and you found this interesting image. This is a great idea for a meme and I should try to join in sometimes.
I hope you will join in. It has been a good way to tap into the huge knowledge base accumulated by fellow bloggers.
Interesting photo. Are you going from iPhotos to Photos by any chance? I did last month and have lost some features I miss.
Yes! As far as I could tell, there was no choice but to make that switch.
What an interesting angle. The beauty of the bark and the flowers beneath the shrub caught my eye.
A happy accident…if only I knew how to reproduce that effect at will.
Always fun to discover a good shot along with a place to use it. Those shadows and reflected colors are a fascinating study.
There are some advantages to being forced into revbiewing past materials.
Beautiful photo! Though I too get angry when online stuff gets “improved”.
They can’t seem to help themselves, can they?
