The Dandy Lion
I’m still here. Just swept up in the chaos of May. I think that May is our busiest month. Busier than December which is a very close second. On Saturday we have two baseball games and two parties in the afternoon that start at the same time!
I’m still taking pictures but my editing time is limited. I have a huge backlog of photos that I hope I can get to before they are old news. The Picture Inspiration prompt for the past week was “In the Distance” so I got down in clouds of pollen to shoot these dandelions. The top photo was my submission. Sweeping landscapes are difficult to achieve here where trees and rolling hills are prominent so my “In the Distance” photo was a stretch.
Until I started to focus on my photography last year I thought of dandelions as nothing but trouble. Now the challenge is in capturing a unique image. There are so many photos of dandelions shared on Flickr, there’s even a dandelion group. The top two shots are taken with my Canon and the bottom with my iPad. We have a front yard full of dandelions. My well-manicured neighbors are not amused.
