shapes of spring
the new photo friday theme is “springtime”
it went live just when new march snow was falling on the fresh petals of the orange crocus. so i thought: "that's the photo to take". only that it didn’t really want to work out.
later, the sun came out, so i tried again, and then realized i am probably too focused on that crocus, that it might be a better approach to work towards a collage of small spring garden details. and while going through the photos later on the screen, i noticed that one of the crocus-photos, when cropped, came out just right. now i am glad about how it all turned out, especially the small moments, like the snow-covered leaf of the christmas rose. and in counterpart to it, the withered red rose, which miraculously still kept its shape and a touch of red.
& the green rolled-up leaf at the left bottom? that's a tulip-to-be.
the collage in changing pattern and with extra photos is online in the photo blog: shapes of spring
