color, colour

color

 

Mere colour, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.
— Oscar Wilde said that

 

 

image notes: this is a macro shot with a lensbaby macro lens. for those who may not be familiar with a lensbaby, you’ll notice there are sweet spot(s) of focus; which, as you stare at it, tend to dance in and out of view. that’s exactly the intent of the lensbaby result.

First, Oscar wrote my favourite play. Second I always wanted a Lensbaby/
That is a beautiful shot.

Lovely picture Sherri. I have never tried a lensbaby but then I have not seen many pictures taken with one that are as good as this

A unique take on the dandelion puffball!! I love the exposed “pad” and its dimples.
