A quest for the ultimate, beautiful, meaningful picture


Magnolia in Spring–Far to Go to Reach Imogen Cunningham

Really irresistible, this spring: temperatures are much above normal since some time and all plants and flowers are just exploding! After a day of hard work in the garden, the magnolia tree looked gorgeous in the sunset. Even better is the purity of a single magnolia flower in close-up. But a snapshot like mine is far from the perfect photo Imogen Cunningham once made of a magnolia–I swhowed her photo a long time ago already.
Still, I’m not dissatisfied with this snapshot, the more so as it was taken with the ‘second camera’, the Panasonix Lumix TZ5, and without a tripod. Not bad at all, this little compact camera! But that’s something I said before, too 😉


Daffodils in spring

Ain’t they sweet? Two looking at each other, the third looking in a different direction. Menages à trois are always risky 😉 Daffodils have something human, with their big trumpets acting like faces or noses.
Yet even without such strange thoughts, they remain irresistible objects for photos, every spring again! The backlight made them even better. Enjoy your weekend, whether it be in spring as in our neck of the woods, or whatever is your season (this might be read in the southern hemisphere, after all).
