Daffodil Disagreement

April 17, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Spring has sprung, so prepare to see more flower photos on this blog.

Sorry. Gotta do it.

It gets old sometimes, I know. The key for me is to try to capture flowers in a new way. I'll work on that.

Anyway, this time it's daffodils.

I've had luck shooting daffodils. The only photo I've ever had published was of a daffodil. It's called "Daffodils 2.1". The "2" comes from the fact that it was the second shot I took of that flower that day. The ".1" revision number relates to the edit that I did to the photo, removing some distracting petals from one edge of the frame (at the suggestion of my friend Joe, who likes to remind me about that). Anyway, Shutterbug magazine liked the image enough to publish it in their August 2013 issue.

I didn't win anything. Just a "Good job Sweetie!" from my wife, which is more than enough.

Since then I've shot a lot of other flowers. But I've always liked daffodils. So when some popped up nearby recently, I grabbed this shot:

I call this "Daffodil Disagreement", because at first glance it almost looks like the flower in the foreground and the one in the background just had an argument, and now they're facing away from each other (with the foreground flower looking a little sad).

I might be reading too much in to it - daffodils almost never have arguments.

Anyway, this one probably won't be published anywhere (except on this web site). But I thought it was good enough to share.
