My blogging friend Lois at On Pets and Prisoners has invited me to participate in the 7-Day Nature Photography Challenge. (Please stop by Lois’ blog and say hi 😉 The mission is to post a nature photograph for 7 days and to nominate a fellow blogger each day.
I would like to invite Suyash Chopra to participate this challenge. Suyash is another photographer that I admire. I know Suyash is quite busy, but I hope he will take time to do this (I can babysit if that helps. 😉
“Let’s go out to shoot some photos,” I said to my husband this morning. He was surprised because I haven’t been willing to go out for a couple of months.
“Where?” he asked.
“Some place has flowers. I need to send flowers to a friend.”
I rolled my eyes. “No, it’s for nature photography challenge. Do flowers in the flower shop count?”
“You mean outdoor? You must be kidding. Have you seen any flower in our neighborhood?”
“But, if it is time for Cee’s tulips to leave, we must have something, don’t you think?”
My husband didn’t think so, but we drove to Quarry Hill Park anyway. To my surprise, NO flowers, not even a tiny wild one. I guess I had to settle for new leaves.
Then we saw some mandarin ducks. “Maybe you can hang my message on duck’s neck?” I said to my husband. He ignored me. (His fault, Lois.)
On our way home, I saw one house, two blocks away from our house, has some flowers. But I thought I would check my neighbor’s garden first. My neighbor told me their flowers hadn’t come out yet. But he took me to his neighbor’s house, pointing at a bush and said, “This will have beautiful purple flowers soon.”
I took a photo to make him feel good.
I walked (it is a nice day, by the way) back to that house two blocks away, and rang the doorbell. The lady lives there gave me the permission to take a photo of her flower. Yeah. Mission accomplished!
Thanks for visiting my blog.
