Hey guys. Quick (and late) post today. This is some kind of yellow flower that I found in the Washington Park Arboretum here in Seattle awhile ago. Not much else to say about it really. So, I’ll stop there.

No time to write up a post today, but here’s some pretty blue flowers to look at!

Hey everyone! As promised several weeks ago (just over a month ago now, actually), here is the “other one”, the version of this picture without ripples.
To recap the story, I took this one (and the other one) in the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle. I was there to see if I could find any cool flowers to take pictures of, and I snagged these two as I was walking by. At the time (and even at the other time, later that night when I was looking through the pictures) I didn’t really think much of them, decided they weren’t really that interesting. But a few months later they caught my eye. Well, actually, the other one did, the one with the ripples. But that caused me to look more closely at this one too. I still think it’s a bit boring, but it’s got some elements that I like: I love the color, and I love the detail in the reflection of the tree. But I’m still not convinced about the picture as a whole. But, I promised I’d post it, so post it I did. You’re welcome.

Welcome back everyone! I’ll be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about this picture. It was taken in the Washington Park Arboretum, just south of the University of Washington in Seattle. I went there one day this summer to take some flower pictures, and I snapped this one too while I was there. At first, I shrugged and decided it wasn’t really worth posting. But then this weekend I was going through some older pictures, and this one caught my eye. It kind of grew on me a bit. I think there are definitely some cool things about it. But, as a whole… I just don’t know. I keep going back and forth.
Thoughts? I also have one without the ripples, with just nice smooth glassy water. Maybe I’ll post that one too in a couple weeks, just so you can see the difference. That one’s the same way: it’s kind of interesting, but it’s still just dot dot dot I don’t know, ya know?
