Weeds and Wildflowers
As the sun was setting tonight I looked across the street to the empty field and decided I had to walk over with my camera. Ok, Camera’s. I took three. And I spent the next 20 minutes or so taking pictures of weeds and wildflowers. I am going to go back tomorrow night with Scott so I don’t have to try and do a self portrait. Because serioulsy, that is awkward. This was the best I got, mostly because my face isn’t actually in it. But, the newly blonde hair is, so there’s that.
I think this flower/weed is called Bishop’s lace, but I’m not exactly sure. I think it is among my very favorite flowers ever. It is beautiful.
This top pic was from my iphone, posted on instagram (my username is pinksuedeshoe if you use it, come find me!)
And this one was from my Instax camera. Didn’t turn out well… flash and sunsets don’t go together very well. Now I know.
I think the sun on this one makes it look like it is glowing from the inside, or like it’s going to catch on fire or something. So so pretty.
These are those giant dandelion weeds, each bloom is about 4 inches across. And full of wishes.
I took this picture over my mom’s fence this afternoon, but I thought I’d add it in here too.
I also love thistle blossoms. They are about the worst plant on earth, but so so pretty.
Anyway, it was really fun to hang out in a deserted field (the same one this house is in, a strip mall project that ran out of money or something) and shoot photos for a while. And it really made me wish I knew more about our camera. Sigh.
OK, that’s probably enough pictures of weeds for the rest of the year, but I think they are just so pretty. I hope to spend many more sunsets just looking at the beauty around me. Even if it is in a deserted stripmall project.
