Circle Trail Magenta

You never know what little beauties you will see while walking along Circle Trail. This is why I always have at least my G10 with me.

SILLY TUESDAY is tomorrow. Hopefully Caroline will be home and back in charge.

They came first for the Communists, and I didn't
speak up because I wasn't
a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because
I wasn't a Jew...
Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

German theologian and pastor (1892-1984)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I love your composition with the flowers in various stages of "reveal." And a good choice for DoF with a "lush" background. Well done!

3 Aug 2009 8:18pm

@Steven: Thank you. As I mentioned, I always have at least my G10 with me; as we were walking along, there it was. The really added bonus (that I actually didn't notice) was the pollen on the petals.
