Composition in Green

I was walking around the backyard this morning, looking for spiders and their webs. The composition of the three or four sunlit greens was a pleasant surprise.

I didn’t expect to find such an artistic design, and one with a spider in its web.

Water Reflections

Water, its reflections and shadows always amaze me.

Could be I’m easily entertained, or that I look at things differently … more from of an artistic standpoint?

The bending of the surface tension creates contorted line reflections

and line shadows.

A slight breeze animates the hodgepodge of lines and sky reflections.

These pictures were taken of my small, overgrown water garden.

No Name Mushrooms

Buffy and I went for a morning walk through the woods at Stone Face.  The late October day was cloudy. No water ran in the creek. No flowers bloomed.

These mushrooms practically lined part of a fallen dead tree.

White shelf mushrooms also grew on the same log.

I thought this configuration had an artistic appearance.

One of these shelf mushrooms had gills on the underside, and the other had pores.  I didn’t find either of these in any of  my six mushroom books.

It didn’t matter to me. I enjoyed them anyway. Besides, they don’t know what they are either.

I come from an artistic family and look at things from an artistic standpoint.

Dragonflies in the Evening

  I find myself making evening rounds of the backyard, photographing dragonflies.

 They don’t know what they are, so why should I worry over knowing what they are?

I come from an artistic family, and I find myself enjoying the lights and darks, the contrast and colors,

plus the overall design.

The abdomen on this one looks like it didn’t emerge correctly.

I concentrated on having two dragonflies in the same picture.

This picture has contrast and an abstract design too.

Now I wonder what I’ll find tomorrow night?

Me and My Shadow

If the daddy long legs only knew the artistic design it created…
