This week’s Picture Challenge: Shine, reminded me of these pictures I took for two different reasons.
The first set I took after My daughter had given me a very small picture allowance so I wouldn’t spend too much time taking pictures.
Nothing Shines Brighter than the sun. I love how Nature finds a way to reflect such brilliance in places you least expect to find it.
The Second set I took after a moment of whimsical inspiration.
One day, as I was passing by a dying bouquet of flowers standing by my window, I happened to notice how beautiful the flowers looked even after they were passed their prime. The Sun was reflecting light on them from a tin can close by. After doing a double take where at first I had ignored them. I couldn’t resist capturing their striking beauty as their petals drooped gracefully and their color complemented perfectly the reflected light of the sun that illuminated them.
