Photo Prayer 2020-13 -- Ambushed By Daffodils

  Look at me! Look at me! cry the blossoms of the weeping cherry. I was on my way to watch morning prayer on the Internet when the flowers ambushed me with their glory. Look at me! Look at me! cry the daffodils. Even though the slow, gentle rain has bent their heads face downward, their bright petals hold my attention while the urgent tasks on my agenda go ignored. My community, my country, and the world are mobilized, each person doing their part. Look at me! Look at me! cry the hellebore and the forsythia. Yes, children, I will look.

What an image and message! Thank you so much, Danny! I love the way you desaturated and otherwise processed. The subtle pattern of brick in the background adds to other lovely features: the diagonal line of blossoms, the parallel, graceful stems. Lovely composition! Especially the water droplets and the way you tilted the photo so that the blossoms are on the bottom. Way to look!
