Do you remember when you were a child and something captivated
your attention and you felt totally spellbound?
Last weekend, sitting on my balcony facing my flowers,
I was completely charmed by this colourful image
seen through the glass from which I was drinking.
I went inside to get my camera
and in passing
peeked through the glass at my garden herbs!
This one is lemon verbena.
The pink begonia clamoured for my attention
so I obliged.
Then I had the idea of picking up a small fluted glass dish
and so enjoyed
creating new kinds of abstract images.
First the yellow marigolds
Then some purple campanula next to the pink begonia
Pink begonias again. They're doing so well this year.
No special editing tricks, just a glass bowl and my balcony garden!
A captivating mosaic to bring them all together,
I hope that you will be as enchanted as I am
observing these colours and shapes
and taking it all in with the eagerness and enthusiasm
of a child who finds wonderment
