Picture Spring: The prompts are getting harder! The idea today was to discover a "shape of delight" or "surprise of spring" in ordinary, mundane objects. The instructor's example, and several of the photos in the gallery involve fruits and vegetables because if you cut a cross section, a flowery shape is often revealed. I love the organic nature of those photos, but I found a few shapes in other things. This is a silicone barbecue basting mop that's trying to be a flower.
Here are a few more photos from today. (1) A bird! I've never noticed a bird shape in the Big Green Egg before today. (2) A white dahlia, or perhaps a dandelion seed head. (3) More buds. Couldn't resist! The background is just the neighbour's house, out of focus. (4) Spruce trunk, taken for no particular reason. (Hoping to see a shape, I guess.) (5) A view that I enjoy from a pedway on my way into work. I liked how the flags were hanging down so nicely this morning. Love the calmness of it.
