I see it has been 5 days since my last post, all I can say is too much needs to be done and it can be tough to keep up.
Black-eyed Susan from Saturday morning. I like the bright petals contrasted with the dark center and the profuse blooming habit in ideal conditions. I chose this cluster growing in the shade, mostly because it was brutally hot in the sun all weekend. Temperature was closing in on 90° by 10:00AM. To me these flowers represent early summer like no other.
I also photographed these flowers with a Canon AE-1 that was marked As-is for $10 at a local thrift shop. It is in excellent condition and came with a partially used roll of film, good battery and seems to be fully functional in spite of being over 30 years old. Looking forward to the results with this one.
