Curves

By mrswoolybill
Rose bay willow herb by the Garden Pond in Wallington's East Wood.
I roped Bill in to help, he held the left hand stalk in position. As I was lining up the shot a couple of ladies stopped and asked what I had spotted. I explained what we were doing, they gave me a look of withering scorn. 'We thought you had seen something interesting like a red squirrel'.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Some people have no artistic appreciation.

I very nearly put up a shot of a single stem this morning (maybe tomorrow)

You cannot please everybody all the time! Good clear image of the flower, with a lean to the right, whereas the background, to the left? Political statement?

Obviously no taste, unlike us EPZers! I appreciate your beautiful capture, even if 'ladies' didn't, Moira 😃👍🏻

You should have told them you were sure a twenty pound note blew in the undergrowth....then watched from a distance as you left them to it Wink
