This is the third developed flower from the tangle of about nine Passiflora edulis (Passion Fruit) vines germinated and planted last December. I am hoping some of the flowers get pollinated and develop into fruit.

I really like this pic I got around 1am this morning. Nice asphalt texture, sort of like an ocean.

Nice shot ! Very impressive. The lighting and texture give it an almost surreal feel.

Nihil, I am trumped. Wish I had a view like the first one I could take.

I bet they don't do a lot of business at that place in the third pic.

Fresh from this afternoon: pretty weeds, a pic that sort of looks like the ocean floor to me, a stargate,
one of my favorite oak trees and a mysterious sign.

The blurring of the grass tassels in pretty weeds along with rich color lends an oneiric quality to the pic.
It's as if the foreground flowers are the focus of what opens out to an impressionist painting.

Well, I'm always thinking they do a certain kind of business they don't want the outside world to know about. Drawing so much attention in such a way undermines such an intent however.

Pretty weeds is a great shot.

I was tripping on these pod things in the backyard the other day and…



It wasn't until I'd been shooting them for a minute or two that I noticed they vomit out pretty flowers.



I'm not very observant.
