. . . of 2014.
That’s right; I am looking back to more than a year ago and putting up photos that have been aging in digital storage. Don’t worry, I opened them and let them breathe before serving them.
Oh, again don’t worry . . . no opinions or commentary with this piece.
This next one is of a pot in front of our garage.
Both of those shots were taken in very bright sunlight. It, the sun, adds an unflattering harshness to the shots.
Contrast those shots with these next shots which were taken indoors (a bouquet we had purchased at the local supermarket).
Those were taken in natural light from a nearby window. The above are, of course, macros. The flowers themselves were quite photogenic even from a more respectable distance.
But, yes, I like the macros as well, specifically for the interesting anthers.
August 15th of last year had me out there in the harsh and unforgiving sun. I’ve already used a few of the photos from that shoot . . . recognize these two?
It’s some of the photos I converted into B&W and used as submissions to Monochrome Madness.
These next ones are related to the above . . .
This one is not related, but I like the shot . . . somewhat.
I also shot what are arguably some of my most favorite flowers.
I’ll repeat myself and say me liking these flowers stems from the various stages of the flowering process . . .
Another flower presenting an interesting bud before flowering is this one . . .
Recognize it? How about now?
That’s right; Black-Eyed Susans.
These next shots are remnants of the Clematis flowers . . .
Last year, as they did this year, the daisies went gangbusters.
I saved the Cone flowers for last. They were hurt again this year, and it looks like I only have one decent flower to show for it, and I hope to get it before it dies.
Cone flowers make excellent macro subjects . . .
As usual, one can click on the individual photos for a larger version, OR . . . you can go to the SmugMug Gallery HERE to see the photos up to full resolution. Really, at the very least, pick the flower you like most and click on it for the larger version.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Astute persons might have noticed these doodles, and correctly surmised they hold some significance for me, and perhaps for humanity at large.
If you click on the doodle, and nothing happens, this is the link it’s supposed to go to: https://disperser.wordpress.com/2011/12/26/palm-vx-and-i/.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
