REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Can't believe I chose a dandelion!

It's Creative Exhange time again, and I've chosen that hated dandelion.....its seed head, no less!  I can honestly say that I've never concentrated on photographing a dandelion in seed before, but I've seen so many pretty images that others have taken.   So I decided to try it, too.  Not once, but twice.

Hi Evelyn,

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm your newest follower and I love what you did with Kim's stained linen. I haven't had a chance to play around with mine yet.

Evelyn, I have seen a lot of these recently, but I can honestly say that I've not seen one I like as much as the second one here. It is just beautiful!!!
You chose an amazing texture for it. I love the way it is so wonderfully soft, and yet there is still so much detail in it! Beautifully done!!

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

Have a wonderful day!

lisa.

I don't know how you made it look so beautiful! Both are lovely images....I like the second a bit more.

SImple and beautiful. Photography really helps us to look at the "ordinary" things in a new light.

Weeds are flowers too! ;)

I think you did a fantastic job on both.

They're really beautiful when you look closely - marvels of Nature. Nice photography!

I know but they are beautiful even I don't want them to my yard:) You have captured it beautifully.
We have sunny day today...jee, very windy but sunny and I'm SO good mood again:)
I hope you have sunny also after all the rains.

Fluffy fluff....these 2 shots are stunning macros. How can you help but shoot the dandelions this year... they are everywhere and are actually pretty. I have been shooting them, too. They remind me of my childhood. Your photos are awesome.

Your lovely photo has elevated the lowly dandelion!! I think you did a wonderful job shooting this, and I love the ethereal quality of the plant that your photo captured. Great shot. Denise B.
