Dandelions

Weekly Photo Theme – Dandelions

It was my turn to select the weekly theme and I returned to a subject that was at the beginning of my photographic journey… dandelions! Long time readers will remember a few posts about dandelions. I hope this one will show some growth in my photography skills. Dandelions are a convenient subject as my yard is usually quite full of them this time of year. Although I have been exploring and capturing a few dandelion portraits the past few days I was able to get the three ‘keepers’ for this week one beautiful night after work. I did have to crawl on my stomach in the yard to get the good angle. lol

  1. I love the sparkle in “Glisten” – bling will get me every time! I’ve given up the battle and choose to call each dandelion that appears in my yard a spot of sunshine.

    • Thanks Karma! I get better pictures that way. Trying to use the flip out screen just doesn’t work. I need to use the ground for support. 🙂
