“Life is not so much about beginnings and endings as it is about going on and on and on. It is about muddling through the middle.” ~ Anna Quindlen
Are you in a place of a new beginning, muddling through the middle, or at the end of something good, something bad, or something you’ve already muddled through?
Please check out my Thursday post on Monochromia. I posted a photograph of another Star Magnolia, but from a completely different perspective.

This photo was taken Monday morning after the rain clouds cleared. The sun was warm and gorgeous, can you feel it? To see a more high-key photograph of this subject, a yellow daisy, visit Monochromia. Which do you like better?

Last week on Monochromia I posted a photograph of a pond with geese swimming in the rain. You can view the post HERE. The photographs of the poppy flowers and buds above were taken the same evening after the rain shower passed.
I have always been mesmerized by the Poppy. The detail of its creation; the incredible bud from which the flower blooms, the intricate detail of the center of the bloom, the delicate, flowing petals, and the passionate color. Unique and beautiful.
Today is Thursday so you get two posts for one, so to speak! Be sure to visit Monochromia for my Thursday black and white photography post.
Last week I posted a photograph of a wilted flower on Monochromia. Sue was curious what the photograph looked like in color. Last week I was preparing for my daughter’s first communion and the celebration and had family in from out of town thus preventing me from getting extra time to create a second post. With that being said, I thought I would post the lily in color in addition to posting a color version of the image I posted on Monochromia today. Which do you like best? Do you find the black and white versions more appealing, or the color versions? When you visit Monochromia, you will also find fabulous quotes that accompany the images. I would love to hear your thoughts as to which version of each image is best accompanied by each quote.

I am excited to announce that both photographs above were selected for the Philadelphia Sketch Club Annual Juried Flower Exhibit. If you live in the Philadelphia area, I encourage to stop by the exhibit – so many beautiful paintings, photographs, sketches and more.
Please note, today is Thursday, which means I posted on Monochromia today. If you enjoy street photography and faces, be sure and check out my post.
