Nasturtium, Bell, Raindrops, Burrs

After a rainy morning, yesterday afternoon I went photographing in the nearby community garden. Every month I snap a couple hundred shots in that garden, for next year's (2014) neighborhood calendar, and I submit about ten.

I want to post all the good leftover pix here, but looking at other blogs, I notice that less often really is more. (Though too much "less" is not enough.) So I try to limit myself.

After I'd whittled down my choices and posted them here, I realized that, without meaning to, I'd chosen representations of fire, air, water, and earth.

Gorgeous images, Fresca!

I love the brilliant colors of the nasturtium, the high-graphic quality of the bell, the round beads of sky-reflecting water and the prickly texture of the burrs. Easy to see why the burrs inspired the invention of Velcro.

CROW: Oh! I didn't know that about burrs and velcro. Totally makes sense. Such a smart design.

Love the chime perspective.

I think a choice selection is better than a barrage.

Fresca said...

"A choice selection" yes!

I love these snaps, Fresca, all of them but the nasturtium's my fave.

Thanks, Poodle! With the light coming through the tattered nasturtium, this catch pleased me too.
