Bowed Daisy

Uploaded: June 11, 2020


Wandering the yard below the rockwall this afternoon, I saw this broken daisy. Old/broken, but not giving up on living. Just as I clicked, something above it moved, and light showed on it.....

What an interesting take on a flower image. It really works with the short focal length. #11810052

Nice one Bob. I like everything about it. Even the shadows in the background somehow add to the composition. #11810144

I could've sworn I answered this already....Thank you all, the background is dirt mounds and patches of weeds, in the "undeveloped" portion of the yard below the rock wall.... #11810628
