these daisies were sort of begging to be shot from the side, as a bouquet. they were also begging to be snipped from their stems and placed in an interesting two dimensional pattern. they were also begging to be isolated in a close up, macro-style. but i have done all of those things before, which is part of the reward of STILL blog’s dailiness. i’ve seen a lot of daisies already after 5 1/2 years, and i’ve photographed them in the most obvious ways, and then a couple of less obvious ways, and today, it was a top-down shot of a vertical bouquet, which i’ve never tried before, and which has some interesting life and movement that i wouldn’t have noticed, if i hadn’t been forced to try Plan D.

god bless america and all that, but if all goes well, after a week packed with events, i hope to be home for the 4th, doing exactly nothing, and that the slow motion explosion of this carnation bouquet is all the fireworks i see.
