“Birthday Blossoms”

“Birthday Blossoms”

“All your father ever dreamed of for you was to do something you loved in life. He didn’t care about fancy qualifications or fancy clothes or cars, just that you were both happy and fulfilled. He was so excited about your dreams for a career.”
― Hazel Gaynor

For Andrea, on her Birthday

One of the many joys of photography is the ability to create a gift that can be shared over the miles. In this case, a small bouquet for my youngest daughter who is away at College for her birthday.

Though I will see her this weekend, I wanted to create something for her today. One dilemma I faced today was the arrival of an ice storm in may region which severely limited my ability to get out for new flowers. So, I recycled my previous bouquet, found a suitable stem of Gerbera Daisies, and made this image. A birthday gift, over the miles. With all my love.

“Yellow Gerberia”

“Yellow Gerberia”

“Yellow is a very favorable vibration for mental or intellectual activity, as it promotes a clear state of mind. Yellow heightens your awareness and alleviates depression, sadness, or any kind of despondency.”
― Tae Yun Kim

This bright yellow Gerberia daisy is one of hundreds given out this past weekend at a huge wedding ceremony. Our town mayor got married on Saturday in a very large and public ceremony to which the entire town was invited. It was a hot day and he even thought to have water available for the guests as they stood in the bright sunshine, watching the ceremony.

For me, it became another photo subject. Imagine that!

My wife brought it home after viewing the ceremony and it sat on our kitchen table beckoning me. So, I ‘borrowed’ it for a few minutes, made a few quick images and put it back on the table.

The bright yellow colour is what first drew me to it. Then I noticed all the details in the petals, especially as I processed the image. It’s like a yellow cup, surrounded by petals and almost without blemish. Like the quote says, it’s a happy colour.
