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?
There is a group on Instagram that has daily theme inspirations: @9Vaga_dailytheme9. This week color was the theme with each day being a different color. Wednesday was yellow and Thursday was green. The images above are a few that I posted on my Instagram page: @robyngrahamphotography. I hope you enjoy the images. I had fun playing with light and shadow.
And, if you are on Instagram, please follow me…I post images almost every day…Much more frequently than I get to blog!
A small speckled visitor
Wearing a crimson cape
Brighter than a cherry
Smaller than a grape
A polka-dotted someone
Walking on my wall
A black-hooded lady
In a scarlet shawl.

Oh ladybug, I wish you joy
As you complete your garden chores.
I’d like to put aside my work
And join you in the out-of-doors!
The Ladybug wears no disguises.
She is just what she advertises.
A speckled spectacle of spring,
A fashion statement on the wing….
A miniature orange kite.
A tiny dot-to-dot delight.
~J. Patrick Lewis, “The Little Buggers”

“There is an innocence in admiration; it is found in those to whom it has never yet occurred that they, too, might be admired some day.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

You guessed it! The Gerber Daisy represents innocence in the Victorian language of flowers. To see the monochromatic edition of this flower, visit my Thursday post on Monochromia. I would love to hear which you prefer – color or black and white. I look forward to your thoughts!
