May is the month when the poppy brings a vibrant splash of colour to the garden. Often, overnight, the furry green protective shell of the bud explodes, exposing the tissue-like petals of the new flower. Backlit by the afternoon sun, the petals produce a palette of shades ranging from yellow to deep red.
Regardless of the inauspicious beginning the site has blossomed and has given me much pleasure. WordPress statistics tell me that today’s post is No. 1378. Every post has included at least one (unrepeated) photo/image and sometimes more. There have also been more than 97,000 ‘views’ recorded. (I have yet to become involved with the social media in any of its guises!)
I would like to thank all of the visitors to this site and hope that my enjoyment in the creative process has been shared.
The first picture is a (colour exaggerated) photograph of light reflecting from the ripples produced by the wake of a swimmer in a swimming pool.
The second picture is the same image rotated ninety degrees anticlockwise – but,interestingly, it seems to take on the appearance of a grazing animal! There is a moral here – something about appreciating that on many occasions there is more than one point of view!
