Weekend Snapshot: Number 47


I was so pleased to begin to have enough fresh produce out of my garden to fill up a bowl that I did just that on Saturday and photographed it.
I also took some shots of my sunflowers. I spotted my first one around Tuesday and then the multi colored variety bloomed later in the week. Saturday I took the shots of each type in bloom.The one above is a variety I've never grown before and I like it but I think the old standard one below will always be my favorite.
The next shot could be titled the hummingbird I missed. If I'd been 1/16th of a second faster, I would have caught a shot of a hummingbird that was feeding on the lantana.

Just beautiful studies, it is art. Photography is indeed art, and the great thing is how everyone sees the beauty and art in stuff some of us walk past a hundred times a day.

You must be sensory, your personality must function strongly on the sensory, (visual, hearing etc), and then you capture that so beautifully...

I would have walked right past those webs, I would have been chasing the light and tones and feeling of the woods. And yet we both create art, each our own art.

People are incredible.

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting and Pam I love what you said about how people are incredible. I think that too when I see how differently we all create. It would be fun to have several people walk together with their cameras and see what each came up with at the same place.
