Dahlias!

From the Puget Sound Dahlia Society garden in Seattle’s Volunteer Park. Courtesy of a closed conservatory, which led me to wandering, camera in hand — and a beautiful Sunday evening.








(updated: suggested not reccing this — not that many would lol — as it lacks substance entirely. But on second thought — a few flowers in the sun might not be a bad thing.)

Thanks to my friend M. without whom I’d never have found these, on this lovely end of summer day.

    …on an old camera, with an unsteady hand in iffy light 🙂 I actually ran home to get the camera, but when I got back a half hour later, the perfect light was gone…shot ’em anyway.

    Hope a few folks smiled.  Have a good evening…

    …of land vegetation yet.  But here’s a preview of sea “vegetation.”  I have no idea of it’s real identification.

    You have my photo skills beat hands down.  If this isn’t your best, I can’t wait to see what that would be.  🙂

    I think they’re beautiful.

    beauty in the world.

    A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:

    Its loveliness increases; it will never

    Pass into nothingness; but still will keep

    A bower quiet for us, and a sleep

    Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

    Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing

    A flowery band to bind us to the earth,

    Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth

    Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,

    Of all the unhealthy and o’er-darkened ways

    Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,

    Some shape of beauty moves away the pall

    From our dark spirits.

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  1. Love the pictures ( you know my Nikon D40 is only 6 megapixels as well, I like it because my hands are small and I can shoot one handed if I wanted )and I loved Volunteer park.

    I might be taking a trip to Vancouver for a weekend in October. Haven’t been in years and S is interested so……
