After patiently awaiting the opening of some special cactus blossoms, I was rewarded this evening with the first one.
This image, although titled "The Blessing", is not named that because I`m blessed with these blooms, but for what it stands for in shape & imagery, as in "the blessing of the loaves & fishes" or "The Sermon On The Mount" or the exhortations of Crazy Horse, or any person of commanding presence speaking the truth.
When viewing linked shots you`ll also see the humor in other titles, as in, "Noodles, Mushrooms & Popcorn", inspired by a memory of being stoned at a "Love-In" & no matter how many people were there, we never seemed to run out of these basic food stuffs. We just didn`t have, loaves & fishes, but it seemed like the same kind of gathering.
Uh! ... Carrying on,.. in the header a recent sunset & over on Planet Earth, some of more week-end street shots.
I`ll take some daytime shots of the cactus bloom tomorrow, to get a better natural look at this beauty.
The purple-ish ones were taken with an LED flashlight.(It was handy, a gift from my "girls")
Enjoy the arrival of your spring & remember those whose spring has been delayed by paralyzing blizzards & extreme weather conditions.
See you tomorrow.
