“Yellow Chrysanthemums”

“Yellow Chrysanthemums”

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L.M. Montgomery

Sorry, a very short post today. It’s been a busy Thanksgiving weekend and I found myself with very little time to sit and write. Yet, I made a commitment to myself at the start of the year to do at least one post every day for the year. So, here it is…quickly assembled.

Yet, I want to do this photo justice, since I loved how it turned out, capturing the rich yellows and subtle greens in the blossoms. It also, deliberately, shows all aspects of flowers, since several of them are actually turned away for the camera.

I spent quite a bit of time setting up the shot so that the plant was fully represented. Once i had it, I just knew it was ‘right’.
