On a personal note before information about the image:
Yesterday despite the wet grass, I went out and weeded some. There is so much to do, but I let our 7 hens out to eat the grass in their penned in areas. The only rooster we have flew over his fence and joined me in the garden.
The rooster really likes people. Nothing satisfies him more than to sit in a swing on your lap. So after I worked a while I sat down on with the cat and rooster. I finally left them to go inside and get a few gardening books and a coke. When I came outside, the rooster and cat were waiting for me on the porch. (The swing is in the yard.)
Anyway, when my husband came home from a visit to the church, I had the neighbor's dog, the rooster, and the cat all sitting with me on the porch. We were all pretty content. I was reading gardening tips and I don't know what the animals were thinking.
NOW ABOUT THE IMAGE
YES, SOMETIMES BE DARING!
A co-worker gave me freedom to come over anytime to photograph the flowers in her yard. And I will be eternally grateful for her kindness to me.
Anyway, my co-worker had a next door neighbor who had rows and rows of peonies in bloom.
Though the neighbor knew me just by acquaintance, one day I just couldn't take it any longer. I walked up to her door and asked her if I could pick some peonies and turn them into still life images. I was even daring enough to ask if there was something she would like me to photograph with the peonies. She brought out her grandmother's Bible. She allowed me to take the Bible home and some peonies. I carefully photographed the Bible and because I had lots of peonies, I had lots of fun photographing the flowers in various vases.
When I returned the Bible, the neighbor received a 5 x 7 image the Bible and peonies.
Though the image above is not the one with the Bible, it is of some of the peonies from that neighbor. (I will post the Bible and peonies image at a later date.)
Challenge for the day:
Check with friends. They might be thrilled if you photographed their flowers. Just be careful and don't disturb anything! Be sure NOT to pick anything. And be sure to give the kind friend copies of what you did.
