Friday Flowers

This is a Chandelier plant, but it is rather unique. Do you see the face?

No? Here are some hints:

There are the two orange eyes at the top with a curl of orange hair in the middle. The mostly-not-yet-bloomed, off white buds are the hair. Do you see the nose and the mouth?

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #54: Detail

Or perhaps in this case, I should say Distorted Detail. This is an outrageously distorted detailed reflection from the same black BMW car I posted yesterday. You can clearly see the door handle front and (almost) center, and down in the lower left, you can see the seam of the back passenger door. But after that, the fun begins.

Above the door handle, you can’t even see the black of the car, as the curvature reflects the bright blue sky and the Norman styled church tower. Then below that, there’s green grass, and in the handle itself is a distorted me with red hair (that part is true to life) and my arms akimbo. Then there’s a quarter oval of blue sky again with perhaps a few white clouds reflected (the optics of curvatures working again). Then below another curve of the door there’s my hands, phone camera, my shirt and pants, and more green grass. And if you look in the lower right corner you will see a distorted sign, and the dogs – Teddy the labradoodle, and if you follow the line of the leash, just a peek of the face of my grey miniature schnauzer, Zoë.

This photo was just too fun to pass up, and it seemed to fit better into P. A. Moed’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Detail than anywhere else.

Enjoy!

CFFC: 5+ Items

These are my additions to Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: 5+ Items.

The 5 future petals of the White Angels’s-trumpet (or Angel’s tears). The 5th future petal is a little tricky to find, as it overlaps the leaf on the right, and they are both green.

“Are you mental? You told me to apply for this job because you thought it would be a good fit for my skill set. You thought the match would be so perfect that I would be a shoe in for the open position. In what shoeniverse did you think this would work?”

Ok, I’ve laid the idioms on pretty thick, but it was all just too tempting…………. Especially if you like shoes.
