Head over Heels


It was just another day


'Till you looked my way.


Now all I want to do, is stay close to you.


I'm falling head over heels; love the way this feels.


My wild rose bush will continue to bloom all the way through the first few frosts.
Although the bees have almost disappeared for the year, this one decided to collect every last bit of joy it could.

    Vos photos sont sincèrement magnifiques... Tout comme cette petite abeille j'en savoure le nectar !

  7. Hi there:) I'm so sorry I haven't been a "regular". I've been getting lost on hikes in really great spots. I needed to get out of the house and things have been crazy:)

    Your pics are dead on gorgeous. I don't know why but that pink of the petal is really connecting with me. I'm thinking it's a past childhood memory with my great aunt who had many flowers with this particular color.....and flowers are pretty....but this color speaks to me in a different way......plus the perfect dead on shot of the bee is excellent. This is a shot to frame and sell. Really. Shots 1 and 2 are my favorites.

    1. Hey Chris, please don't apologize :) I appreciate your visits and comments but I also love going to your blog to see everything you find and photograph on your travels! This is the only rose I own, the only one that will agree to grow in my garden, it's my lucky rose and I just love it. Thank you about the flying bee shots. I'm new to photography and am happy to keep learning more and more each day.

    2. I don't think I ever stop learning about photography. The best part is that you now have a journal of shots. I will sometimes look back at my old work and think.....what was I trying to communicate in this picture? I have found that photography absorbs the negative energy of the busy life we live.....and it has been wonderfully....dare I say it...spiritual?

      I love the detail you capture in a lot of your flowers. They are some of the most difficult when it comes to creating a "mood" for a picture. You have taken flowers that would just look like flowers and personified them and given your shots character. That's art. So thank you for making me look at things differently.

  9. Oh Rosemary...
    You are so talented! Great shot of the bee flying to the flower :)
    And I never knew bees roll on the pollen!
    This bee is really 'rolling' all out for it.
    Thanks for this education, really!! (^-^)
