The Soul of a Crocus

Soul of a Crocus

Photography amazes me. This photo is untouched except for a bit of cropping and the framing. How do cameras DO what they DO? How can a bunch of pixels capture the very essence of a crocus?  And why does a photograph like this make me wonder about the very existence of the entire universe…

    I can’t answer your questions, but it amazes me again and again as well 🙂

    Sugar frosted saffron; I, too, am in awe at what my digital SLR gives.
    I had no idea when we bought it just how much pleasure it would give. Fun.

    This photo is truly amazing. Is this the center of the crocus? I can’t see that part of the flower if I get up right next to it. Absolutely beautiful.

    Beautiful. I so agree with what you had written. Photography amazes me also, and I see what I haven’t seen before. I love what you had written: “…very essence of a crocus… “the very existence of the entire universe…”

    Amazing richness of color and intensity of the crocus. It’s what we need after this winter, for sure.

    nicole, UHDD ~ technology and art seem to co-exist in this matter quite well.

    gandalf ~ my offspring – the scientist one – claims they are stigmas. I know nothing more than that. I guess I could have looked it up, but…

    montucky ~ thanks, m.

    rick ~ some of us are born to wonder, I guess.

    susan ~ thank you for your kind compliment. I’m glad you can visit frequently.

    jpt ~ a true compliment from you. yes, they do look coral-ish

    jeana ~ thanks. I love to see you visit.

    anna ~ deep words sometimes escape on my blog. shrug. 🙂

    quinn ~ thanks, we are definitely raring for spring to come nd stay put for more than a day.
