November 19, 2015 … flowers and seeds

Today, we flew to Queenstown.


Wind-blown poppy

This put an additional squeeze on photography time yesterday, so my options are limited.  I had to visit a fellow committee member in Eastbourne, so I saw some bright poppies near his house. They were being beaten about by the wind but I liked the bright colour and the hairy stems.


Arum lilies on a river bank

Next, I paused in Sladden park and liked the lilies and their reflection in the river which was sheltered from the wind above.


Seed heads

At home,I saw that more of those shimmering grasses had developed seed pods so I tried for an open air shot in the wind.

And in the immortal words of Mr Gump, that’s all I have to say about that.



About wysiwygpurple

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
