From a photo shoot this morning.
You are growing figs in Mt. AIry? what is that?!!
Betsy, that's a honeydew melon hanging on the structure built for the tomato there. What you see is about 5 inches wide, already (seems like it just was about an inch wide). I'll try to post an update as it grows.
Nice photos. Love the red shirted person behind the purple flower and the light blue window shutters.
Wow, a honeydew. I once grew a cantelope (sort of by mistake, it grew in my compost), but then an animal ate it the next day.
Thanks for the comment. The red-shirted guy is my eleven-year son, who is now in Greece with his grandparents! In shooting the butterfly plants, I was frustrated with the why my lens handles direct sun light on the right edge of the floral part. I should experiment with a polarizing filter again to try to soften that wash out.
Our front yard is just full of zuchini plants that took over everything and didn't produce any fruit. I think it was due to a mold from all the rain.
I'll report back how the honeydue comes out.
That's one sedulous-looking fire hydrant.
Your photos make me imagine a photographer that enjoys his place and the things around him.
Thanks for the comment.
Wow, "sedulous" -- had to look that one up, "showing dedication and diligence." The older houses in our hood, of which ours is one, are from the 1870s. Maybe the fire hydrant is from then too, when people to crafting of fire hydrants seriously :)
Re: enjoying the things around me... I must say I don't have to go far to find stuff that I want to photograph.
Your photos look great! :)
