My best photo so far?

 
This little beauty was lurking at the bottom of a wall, unseen by the hundreds who walk past each day.  Sometimes you have to look hard to find true beauty, but when you find it...

Beautiful picture! I'd have to agree it's your best so far!

It reminds me of the phrase "bloom where you're planted".

Is this a true photo you took, or found online.

If you took it, congratulations on showing your innermost squishiness. I love it.

Ooops. That's me up there making that comment.

Too nice for words! Well, other than those...

And thanks for sharing the "where" and the "why".

ShadowRun300 - Thanks!

Beau's Mom/Lotta Joy - Yes, of course I took it - and yes, I am happy to reveal my inner squishiness :-)

Abby - Thanks! Letting my inner squishiness show...

I love the way the flower looks as if it's floating far above all the greenery below. The background blurs away while the flower is so sharp and beautiful.

Stunning photo!

That is gorgeous. What kind of flower is that? Amazing how plants can pop up just about anywhere.

Great photo. I dunno I think it's easy to find true beauty, it surrounds us, it's more a case of taking the time to see it. ;)

Rock Chef said...

Terri - Glad you like it!

Riot Kitty - I don't know what it is, to be honest! Given that I am taking quite a lot of plant/flower photos, maybe I should start to learn about them!

LL Cool Joe - You are right! Glad I took the time to see this!

Beautiful picture. You are really getting good with that camera. And you are spot on: Beauty is all around us - we just have to look for it.
