Charming to make delicacy with rough materials and bold composition. It makes me feel a big resolved contradiction happened.
Thank you for returning Ruth for a while.

Thank you, Lois. I like your take on this photograph. I must say that I returned Ruth only reluctantly, but I’m happy you are enjoying her company.

Excellent composition, Linda. This will make a great poster for your living room!

Thank you, Ken. Too bad it doesn’t go with my sofa.

Begonia confetti! Party time! Ken’s right, such a well thought out composition. I like the spacing of the three rectangles, and the fact that at least one petal goes off the edge on every side.

Yeah, I can’t say why I don’t mind the petals being cut off all over the place. I can’t agree that it was a well-thought-out composition, though. Al least not if “well thought out” means I spent time thinking about it. I just knew immediately what I wanted to do and was afraid that was because it copies many of my other compositions. Still, I’m not apologizing. I like it, too. (Are we all our own biggest fans? After all, we’re the ones who saw our compositions—and liked them—even before we clicked the shutter.) This was the first shot I took of this plant that day. At least I stuck around to see if I could do anything else with it. This is my favorite of the four, though.

(I like “begonia confetti.”)

Maybe well thought out means your eye is so practiced that it knows a great composition when it sees one, and I for one do not feel there’s repetition in your compositions. Yeah, I guess it’s a good thing we’re our own biggest fans, otherwise maybe nothing would get posted!

You flatter me, Lynn, but I’ll take it. And yes what you say about biggest fans and posting.

A very attractive composition, Linda. The contrasts in colour, texture and shapes work so well together.

Thank you, Andy. This plant was impossible to ignore any longer. (I’d walked past it several times before.) The cloudiness of the day actually helped, I think, in the color contrasts. I usually prefer full-out sun, but the intermittently overcast sky was on my side this time.

The light can be kinder when the sky is a little overcast

It’s good to be learning that.
