My iTunes: No Air by Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown

Short post tonight...almost non-existent....except for the photo. I have a long night ahead of me and a big day tomorrow. I have cleaning to do and I am on a roll....so I will get back to it.

Isn't this shot lovely though? I love flowers from the back...let's face it...the petals get ALL the glory....

Enjoy it!

This one is great. Nice job of getting down there to give us such a rare perspective.

I guess I finally will have to pull out my backlit dogwood petals picture.

"Lovely" is the perfect word to describe. I love the color of the sky as the backdrop and how the light comes through some of the petals.

It *is* lovely. To abandon the inside center color of the daisy is bold and daring. And in this case, well worth the risk. There is plenty of color here to keep the interest high. And that angle is fast becoming one of my favorite approaches for flowers.

I feel honored that you took a break from your cleaning to leave a comment on my blog. I'm curious what the "big day tomorrow" is all about.

I really like everything about this picture. the white against the blue the backlighting and the under and back shot. Good stuff as always Anna.
Hope you get all that work done. Rest well.

Very nice shot! I've seen many flower shots but this must be my fav!!

kenju said...

I like this one too, Anna, and you're right, the petals get all the glory. The backs of flowers have their charms, too. Miss you.

christy said...

Very true, those petals are glorious :) Hope your cleaning went well!

Anna said...

I love this shot!!!! The sky behind the flower is just so summer-ish. I got a new cell number... I'll call you soon. I want to hear about the trip!

Jan said...

I love this photo, thanks. I like flower back shots, too. They're not done often enough.

Britt said...

I've always had a hard time picking favorites... movies, music, anything... and your photos are no exception. But this might just be in the top handful :) Its Lovely!

Beverly said...

That is lovely.

Cris said...

This is beautiful Anna, good to see blue skies when all is gray here down the Equator. Oh, this would make a nice project: Looking up! :-)

Heidi said...

Oh, this is nice. Rick Lee did a post similar to this not too long ago, too... I love them both!

Like an umbrella of the cartoons, with the animated insects protecting them from the sun. I think your shot is lovely and unusual.

JAM said...

I actually gasped when this one came into view as I scrolled down.

This is an amazing photo.

The Chinese government is known to have put in place technology that monitors online chat rooms for controversial topics but the far-reaching measures have not stopped all nefarious cyber activity.

As well as criminal hackers, many activists are turning to the web to make protests more visible.

The website of Menginu, a firm at the centre of a tainted milk scandal, was vandalised and its homepage image replaced with text that read "Do you have a conscience?".

It was thus that he spoke of the object of my visit. His earnest desire to see me, and of the solace he expected me to afford him. He entered, at some length, into what he conceived to be the nature of his malady. It was, he said, and one for which he despaired to find a remedy--a mere nervous affection, he immediately added, which would undoubtedly soon pass off.
