Writing with Light

Stand Tall

Sorry about the post title…I was trying to come up something a little bit more unique and witty but unfortunately I was having one of those creative-title-creating-uninspired mental blocks.  Fortunately though I was feeling a little bit more inspired when I saw this lily as the sun was setting the other day. The top petals were a bit wilted but the base of the lily was standing straight up and the light from the setting sun was shining right through.

Flower, lily

  10. That makes a great abstract, Edith. You’re not the only one struggling with titles for images (I’ve given up on that mostly) and for Posts. It can be really difficult sometimes.

  23. Apart from being a strong image generally, this is also an image that benefits from the accident of being viewed on a computer screen rather than as a print. Because of the vertical orientation on a horizontal screen, I could only see the top third of the image at first. I had no idea what this was. Scrolling down, it took me to nearly the bottom of the image to identify the subject. It was a fun little mystery that revealed itself in a few moments, but had me guessing wildly during those moments. Much fun and well done, Edith.

  31. Great image! For me photography is all about capturing the things that we don’t normally see, or take for granted, and this shot does just that. It doesn’t need the whole flower to be effective! 🙂
