    Re: Salon theme #202 - Flowers

    I have been very busy of late and, to be perfectly honest, have not been in the mood to photograph, other than (out of necessity) pics for our inn's FB page.
    I will try to be better, but here are a couple of my older favorites.

    Backlit Hibiscus



    Kalanchoe
    The individual flowers are only about 1/2 inch across.
    We haven't been able to get it to bloom since, at least no like this. (only a few individual blossoms)
    It got very gangly and almost died and I am trying to resurrect it.
    My grandson, Ian (not our own FTU Ian), calls me "Tata", so I am...

    Ian's Tata

    Do Not Meddle In The Affairs Of Dragons...
    For you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

    Re: Salon theme #202 - Flowers

    The 202 Salon is now over. Many different takes on the theme and each a "winner" in the salon, thanks to everyone for the entries and I note the number of views generated for salons seem to remain relatively good although the participation doesn't reflect that.

    OK... my favourites!

    Gillian's entry was intriguing with the juxtaposition of the torn down abandoned lower level of the building and the bright, well tended flowers and shades of the upper floor. I'm left wondering on the location of that photo as it doesn't fit my impressions of Norway with a gated entry and open to the elements windows... perhaps Central or South America...

    Andym, Barrie, Kurt and Ian's Tata all had excellent portraits of individual flowers. Rudolf's post processing to select the colour of the blossom over a black & white background was well done.

    While my wife really likes Rob's fluffy Dandelion seed pod and I can't fault the picture, the darn things are the bain of gardeners everywhere...

    For first place I have a tie between DeeVee's second photo of "Wildflowers in the Desert" and hschnee's "Little Frosty Flower'. Can't break the tie with flower identification so I'll award the honour of running the next salon to Hal (hschnee) based simply on the fact that DeeVee just finished running Salon #201. Congratulations Hal and take it away...

    Congratulation to Hal and thank you for mentioning my photo.
    You are right, the photo is not from Norway. It is from the town Vukovar in northern Croatia. It was badly damaged during the war on Balkan. The wall has a lot of bullet holes.

    Thank you, Stef! I'm glad you liked the frosty flower picture. I found it by the side of the road one cold morning when I was driving by the farms near my house looking for interesting winter photo opportunities.

    I'll think of a new Salon by the end of the day.
