PHOTOPAGE 393

   

   

 

 Early June 2009

It's been a rainy few weeks, which is fine for photography - an overcast sky reduces contrast and softens colors. Of some interest. . .look at the Teasel 'cup' (393.8) - this distinctive plant forms cup-like structures where the leaves meet the stalk and hold water

Above, the Black Locust image has been color inverted and toned in sepia which emphasizes design elements to me.

The structure of the Cow Parsnip flower array referred to as an umbel with its spreading spokes - the word umbel derives from umbra or shadow and relates as well to our umbrella which, in turn, suits our current wet Spring.
