Some primroses

Lisa's Creative Exchange always inspires me; her ultra-macro flower shots are fabulous!   Those who participate in her weekly challenge continue to post images taken with their hearts as well as their cameras.

I'm also linking up with Mellow Yellow Monday, where everything is the color of sunshine!

I was high bidder on a 'gardener's collection' at a benefit auction last weekend; four potted primroses were included in the basket of seeds, bulbs, starter pots, plant food, and tools.   This yellow primrose became the subject of a 'reflection' photo series this morning.  A shiny tray from the Dollar Tree has been added to my photography 'tools.' The pattern in the reflection is the design on the tray.     (Textures: Kim Klassen, Visualogist on Flickr)

How beautiful, Evelyn! I love that vibrant yellow - such a contrast to your snow covered boots! Wonderful processing!

Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous Evelyn!
That yellow is just spectacular, and I love the work you did on it. Truly beautiful!
Congratulations on being the high bidder. It sounds like a wonderful collection.

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

I've never seen such a lavish primrose before!


The seekers of yellow, they say,
Will have a most terrible day
Should they not behold
Cream, amber or gold
To burnish life’s dull shades of grey.

Oh, you win things.
And not just any old thing by the looks of it.
You tamed the bright yellow nicely with your texture ( is that what it is?)

Lovely Evelyn and it's clever how you 'doubled your money' with the reflective tray. :)
