to feed thy soul




my fisheye adaptor ended up, last week, somehow, in several alarming pieces, and i suspect, somehow, that i didn't reassemble it - tsk - properly.
so, the swell of this horizon is undeniably assymetrical, but i don't mind too much: the listing rows of hyacinths* still suggest, as i hoped they would, a sweet-scented tray of purple delicacies proffered, tilted, for approval and admiration.
you'd almost think, wouldn't you, that there were hills in this part of holland?

*perhaps i should have gathered a birthday bunch: a friend - er, acquaintance - is celebrating his 29th today; my best wishes to him!

  1. I think I like the way this looks a lot! I think it helps that the yellow and red stick out so much. It's a super cool shot!

  3. Hmm... it was a year ago that we spent the afternoon looking for the perfect "28" for your "friend - er, aquaintance".

  5. I like the asymmetrical perspective and blurred edges. This is one area the Netherlands has over the US... endless fields with rows of flowers. I would have a 'field' day (pun intended) photographing this subject.

    I'm glad you didn't pass this one by, Lynn. Lovely.

  10. At the beginning I was put a bit off by the blurred edges of the shot. But then looking again, I think they complement the haze seen in the far horizon. Is like the world ends behind this fence made of yellow and red flowers.

  11. First thought, "OOh, gorgeous".
    Second thought, for heaven's sake, don't re-reassemble your lens: the asymmetric view works so well.

  12. I agree with all your 'commentors': this is a great photo; again colours & simplicity.
