"I am a flower of the open field and a lily of the steep valleys." - Song of Song 2:1

Yesterday was a long day and while the wife and kiddo settled in to read and snuggle time, I crept out to the front of the house to do a little shooting to unwind. My day started at 4:30AM and as someone who avoids caffeine and sugar I knew it was going to be a long one. I shot this grouping of flowers in our front yard earlier on in the week but wasn't happy with it yet. I think the fatigue actually helped me because I didn't try to overthink or arrange the shot. Initially, I was going to do more photoshop on this one to correct where our resident bunnies have been at work but I decided to leave it alone as we do the bunnies. Somehow the flowers, slightly rough around the edges and worn by their environment, reminded me of me at that moment and they seemed perfect in their imperfection.

May you all have a wonderful weekend.

Magnolia Blossom - Yep, feeling rather crappy today with the head cold. I saw this beautiful magnolia flower out my window in the backyard and decided I wasn't going to let a cold stop me so chills and all I set up a quick backdrop and got to work. On another day, the focus and composition would be better but I don't care. My son told me last night to stay in the present and positive and I would feel better faster. I did this for him because deep down I know he's right. #flower #floral #spring #garden

Today's experiment was with some witch-hazel (cultivar Jelena) from my front yard. I'm particularly happy with the more abstract nature of the result. It has a bit of a sinister look to it. I am still trying to find a proper glass vessel that is freezer safe. I used a wide mouth canning jar and it still ended up broken and in pieces.

In 2013, these guys had a bigger crowd than the Trump inauguration. It's true. Yep, that's Rammstein with Till holding some other dude like a dog. Please look it up. Just had to interject a little perspective. That is all. #trump #inauguration #truestory
