My flower pictures are in. I cut my 60 or so shots down to about 20 for everyone’s consideration. These pictures are from a season of growing in my yard. There are blooms pictured here starting from early May and running through August. I’m trying to narrow down to my favorite 8 for a collage frame I bought. If it makes any difference for your consideration, the frame includes space for 4 horizontal shots and 4 verticals. A couple pictures in the gallery are not really anything I’m considering for my collage, but I thought you might like to see them. The one titled “puddle” was just me having a little fun after a rain shower. I was struck by a lot of pretty sights in my yard one August afternoon after it suddenly poured buckets then stopped. I took lots of shots of wet stuff in my yard (some included in this gallery) and then saw my reflection framed in a puddle, so I tried to capture it. The one titled “survivors” was something I just took the other day when I noticed a couple of little snapdragons still holding on in one of my containers after my other annuals had already died away. And a question for everyone, beyond which of these pictures are your favorites, in the one titled “columbine” are my fingers a distraction? I love this delicate flower but I could not get a nice shot of this bloom without holding it up.
Anyway, all comments and criticisms welcome! Please help me pick the ones that will go in my frame!
And thanks, shrew, for letting me use your site to get this help!
Okay folks, help our gal Karmardav choose from all the great photos.
