Between the recent triple digit heat and near drought conditions, plants have had it kind of rough this month of July, 2012.
This photo, like yesterday’s photo, has less contrast, softer colors, less intense light, than the photos I usually prefer. It has a soft, almost painterly quality. I quite like it, though not so much as my bright and sunny photos. What is your opinion?
Just because they are dried out doesn’t mean these leaves have no beauty. The early morning sun can reveal beauty in many otherwise unnoticeable things.
This is a lovely composition. And I, too, like the soft edges and the blurred background.
Why, thank you 🙂 I was unable to figure out what your name was, but I did visit your blog I loved seeing your painting process for the Georgia O’Keefe-style huge flower. Marvelous!
