  1. This is such a truly wonderful offering
    for Memorial Day my great friend 🙂 🙂
    Once again your artistic brilliance has
    treated everyone that frequents your
    Space 🙂 Have a superb Monday SIG

  2. I love the perspective on the angle of this photo. I almost could find myself really really small and trying to walk through the leaves of Lilly’s. Very cool!

  3. On an unrelated note: Tonight’s the night! (Last night and tomorrow night too):

    BFF and I just enjoyed a peek at the Planetary Triple of Venus (bottom), Jupiter (left) and Mercury (right) in the night sky just past sunset. We’re going to head out again in a few minutes when the sky is a tad darker.

    You should be able to view it tonight and tomorrow at sunset (if clouds don’t get in the way).

  4. The monochromatic look adds a somber feeling appropriate for Memorial Day. I have some Asiatic Lilies in bloom, and they are in-your-face-orange and red.

    • Many thanks, Patti! Originally I was thinking of using a bit more color… but I’m often drawn to less… and I was hoping it might be fitting here.
      I remember that my grandmother had some bright orange / red lilies, too (I’m not sure what kind they were, but I remember how incredibly vibrant they were)!

  5. What a perfect image for Memorial Day. The Lily a perfect symbol for serenity after this life, infused with your personal view and color palette.
    You did this on a smart phone?! Gah, the cat texts better than I do. You captured a perfect shot and then worked more magic on… a phone.

    Robert the art magician!

    • You spoil me (as always) with your incredibly generous comments, Ms. B… I thank you very much… you really are far too kind!
      Hahaha… I know that feeling! I still don’t know what half the stuff on my phone does (go figure the first thing I start playing around with is the camera). I suppose at some point I should probably try to figure out how to make an actual phone call!
      🙂

    • Thank you very, very much!
      I’m very happy to hear you liked the processing (I sometimes get a bit carried away with it)! I can’t take much credit for the rest of the set-up, though… it was all ready to go!

  6. Flowers for the Fallen – Great tribute Bob. “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.” May those who have lost loved ones in the service of their country find peace.

    • Hahaha… it does look like there could be some wonderful, funderful madness going on in there somewhere, doesn’t it?!
      I’m very happy to hear that, J.B. – thank you!
      🙂
