A Little Artistic Green

Jude’s month of Life in Colour: Green is drawing to a close and I had some fun at the Botanical Garden this morning, being drawn to morning light on green – although by the time we left I was looking at green in dappled shade.

Last week I took a photograph of a fern that was pointed towards me. It didn’t turn out but I used that as a learning experience and tried again. I doubt that this will be my last try.

I really like these last two, taken as Jim was walking towards the exit.

As I am working with these photographs I am finding them very sensual. It seems like I have begun the healing process from the very difficult Covid year, spending time feeling depressed and lethargic, close to tears, but also finding joy in a search for gentleness and calm. My blogs will undoubtedly be reflecting this. I’d love to hear where you are in the coping process.

  1. Love these and see you have been much more determined to post pictures with the new WordPress set up than I have. I post some on my work blog, but my personal one, very rarely. So bravo for sticking with it!


    • I don’t do most of what it offers, and have two frustrations. When I want to have printing on the side of a photo I make smaller and position on the left, the printing on the right is a very large font – and I can’t find a way to change it. Also, If I want to just post a photo, the title doesn’t show up on top, but way at the bottom of the post. If that is my greatest frustration in life, I can live with it.


  2. Beautiful photos and lovely greens. I love capturing ferns and the beautiful shadows they often cast on the ground; it’s so much fun! Thanks for sharing and have a good day. Aiva πŸ™‚


  3. Nice that you had something to focus on. Ferns are beautiful but often difficult to photograph. I actually like your second photo of the lovely curved leaves. I’m sorry to hear that you have found the last year difficult, let’s hope things improve now, though I suspect we are going to be living with the scars of this pandemic for a very long time to come.


I'd love to hear your thoughts.
