  1. The muted tones of brown suit well the drooping head. Sometimes the cares of the world feel so great that heads and hearts feel so heavy. Yet I notice that in the two left corners, there is a touch of green, a symbol of hope and renewal of the spring that will eventually come. Nice shot (and I notice you took it with your old camera)!

    • Thanks so much Mike! I took it last weekend, this weekend I’m home with a nasty stomach flu, so the picture kind of symbolize how I feel.. But your philosophical interpretation is so much better!! πŸ™‚

  3. That is such an interesting picture. My eyes just keep going slowly around and around … and is it a small dried flowerhead? You have quite an eye for simplicity.

    • Thanks so much! It’s not a flower, before it becomes like this it has small, flat “capsules”. I don’t know the name, but I will try to do what you do: Take pictures in different stages and show the change!

  6. No matter. Even the droopy seed head looks good. The muted tans and browns are earthy. This macro is GOOD. (Get better soon. Lot of water and orange juice.)
