Beauty and fragility, both together: our wisteria  has bloomed like I’ve never seen before this year. It’s been simply amazing! Our property is covered with these vines, some of them very old, others just youngsters…it’s known to grow a foot a day in the heat of the summer. We had a thunderstorm a few nights ago and the next day, I stumbled upon some crushed blooms out in the side yard where my flat boat is parked. I was taking the kitchen scraps out to the compost when I found this on top of my visqueen-covered outboard motor cover.

You never know where, or when, a photograph will appear! Just try not to pass up your opportunities. I promise that if you come back later, whatever it was that struck you, will be gone. No kidding, it’s a guaranteed fact.

  1. Agree, a few weeks ago I saw a wind mill not in operation. It looked like one blade was not there anymore, but the rotor was in a normal stand-still. One blade was positioned at 10 o’clock. Physically that was not possible, one blade cannot stuck there at a 10 o’clock position without a reason.
    What happened?
    Nothing really happened, from the perspective when I spotted this the sky had the same color as the blade, so simply I was not able to see it!
    It would have been a great picture, but no camera with me… Silly me…

    I really like this picture, with both the wilted bloom and what looks like two seeds starting to germinate. It really says a lot.

    Yup, I agree, don’t pass up the pictures.

    That is a striking image. Evokes a very odd feeling for me! Great work.

  4. Mason says:

    I agree with Eric. The shot is remarkable. I wasn’t able to figure it out not after I read your caption although I felt some pinch of sadness on the tone of the pix… After reading it, I was even more mesmerized. Yes, camera should be handy, at all times.
