Unusual Form

Unusual, this week’s photo challenge of The Daily Post ~~

I call this Shamrock my “butterfly” plant, as you can see from its shape,  quite unique for me.

From dusk to early morn, its deep purple petals close to sleep away the night, just like how many flowers do. Its tiny lilac flowers make this plant even more special.

Then one afternoon, perhaps due to the close angle shot I took– my Shamrock “butterfly” plant gave me a picture of an unusual form. See it?

Once Upon a Moonlit Night

Tonite, I caught sight of the passing MOON seemingly growing on my “Silver” plant at the backyard…

The Passing Moon

Peeking through the leaves of my plant…

The same passing moon, edited version

O moon, you cast your glow brighter, as the hours go deeper into the night…

A more subdued edited version of the passing moon...

’til only you oh moon reign supreme over the hushed, slumbering earth…

The Pavement: 3 Perfect Shots

Afternoon Scene #8 - I took this photo of a pavement inside a mall...

Same pavement, another shot…

Afternoon Scene #9
Afternoon Scene #10 - Interesting play of light and shadow on the pavement.

Overall, I wanted to capture a sense of motion when I took these shots one after the other. One pavement, three perfect shots, I hope.

Photo Collage: My Yellow Hibiscus

Yellow Hibiscus in My Garden

In my tiny garden stands a small bush abloom with yellow hibiscus warming up to the first rays of the morning sun…

Such refreshing sight greeting me each day lends a cozier ambience to my simple sacred space…

Through the Looking Glass…

It took me so long to come up with a response to this photography assignment: “incorporating glass into an image to add a layer of complexity.” Thus it was a blessing I and my family got to dine in a restaurant with this fascinating view of the outside…

Through a glass panel - The sharp lines and striking view of the buildings beyond, plus the soft twirls of the clouds in the sky, were made clearer by using more contrast and color saturation.
Through a glass panel 2 - same view but at a slightly different angle...
Through a glass panel 3 - I included more of the street below...
Through a glass panel 4 - stronger colors...

I never thought taking pictures through a looking glass can be interesting; now I’m hooked, thanks to The Daily Post’s Photography 101 course. Cheers!
