Once again, it’s time to let some recent photos see the light of day and be appreciated by someone other than just me. All of these are moments in the northeastern United States, taken from a pickup, a kayak, a boat, and on foot. Enjoy!
The little lake where I went kayaking near Worcester had some lilies so of course I had to try and get close enough for a photo. Five minutes and a lot of little paddles later, I got this shot.
The translucence of the petals on this flower (some kind of day lily, Peg?) just slay me. It’s so delicate. I had one of these in my yard in West Seattle years ago, and it produced three flowers over the spring, and I loved each one of them as long as they lasted.
The combination of clouds, bridge, and hurricane gates was too much to resist for this photographer!
I never expected to see a hibiscus in Vermont, but I sure did. Someone filled the front gardens of a condo building with them. I hope they last the winter…
Many times in the South, I have spotted Chicken of the Woods mushrooms, but this one was definitely calling my name in Connecticut. I looked up from my reading outside to see it lit up by sunlight like it was a photo shoot. And so it was.
Ah, the clouds in the northeast this trip have been just so photogenic. I really appreciate that, clouds. And let’s give a nod to architects who provide such wonderfully reflective buildings.
You might be thinking, wait, the title is Seven Orphans. The seventh one? The cover photo! The backroad I was on had such a perfect curve that I had to pull over just to get that shot. I never know how the cover photo will display on different browsers, so here it is as the original cropping.
Everything is beautiful, all that matters is to be able to interpret.
