A Call to Cull

Ah, back again. I needed to take pause to pay respect to the events of yesterday’s funeral after the violence against the police resulting in their deaths and injuries. Hope lies in its midst, as a community of heart assembles to support one another in caring, healing and recovering.

My computer is full and since I cannot afford a new one, some images have got to go. It is enjoyable to revisit  much of what I have forgotten, sometimes making me pause in reflection, sometimes making me groan with “What was I thinking?” or just plain laughing out loud. I like this  one from April of last year, so am keeping it for now.

  3. Much darker than normal, when I played with the exposure I liked what the darkness brought out.It is a detail in a larger plant.My eye was taken by the contrasts in the points and edges of the leaves.

  4. I’d be keeping this one, too. Lovely, those irridescent purple edges of the blossom! mmmm.

    • It was those edges that hooked me. I darkened the exposure and cropped the photo during processing.
