weekly photo challenge: simple
a bruised wish also
stirs in the
with an etude
of a hundred seedlings
preparing to loosen
like stylish white
WOW! What a photo!!!

thank you so much! glad it worked with a normal lens (smile).
thank you, Gilly. one day, i’ll get a real macro lens (smile).
The photo is so stirringly stunning but the poem really amazing! Wonderful photographer and poet, multi-talented, I’m a bit jealous 😉

Great shot, loved it. 🙂
thank you, Nandini. good morning!
wow! what a fabulous shot. so well, the beauty in simplicity.
thank you – it was the only dandelion puff left on the curb! (smile) and most of its seeds had already flown!
Beautifully composed – lovely colors. Great photo.
thank you, Anne. and thanks for stopping by. your paintography and nature photos are very lovely!
GREAT shot – they look fluffy …
thank you! wow, is that a painting or a photograph on your post for the “simple” challenge? it looks like a Truffula Tree from the Lorax! unreal! thank you for sharing.
A really beautiful shot. I should say that I like the nature-photography direction you’re on lately… a nice contrast to you equally brilliant urban photos
thank you! i feel like it’s a nice departure, but not always easily accessible to get these shots! (smile)
Simply perfect! Thanks for the share 🙂
BTW it’s spelled “dent de lion” (french words for “lion’s tooth”)
cool – what’s lion’s toothy about it?
simply stunning capture
thank you, Jo!
I consistently enjoy your work. Nice job
thank you so much for the consistent follow!
thank you, Susan!!
