found in the backyard, growing like a clumped flower. i can seriously say, “i do like some weeds.”

thank you to all who identified the flowers in my previous post

I think about photographs as being full, or empty. You picture something in a frame and it’s got lots of accounting going on in it. Stones and buildings and trees and air, but that’s not what fills up a frame. You fill up the frame with feelings, energy, discovery, and risk, and leave room enough for someone else to get in there.
— Joel Meyerowitz said that

    at first glance, I thought you found a pair of leather hiking shoes. but while the shamrocks are weeds, and appear to be spreading, you have to honor them at least for the day.

    a weed is only a plant in the wrong place. These look just right to me

    I like the idea, leg and feet as directional arrows that lead to the image

    That is a very cool shot. I love the curve of the tree root.

    You found a “pot of gold” of shamrocks for St. Paddy’s Day, Sherri.

    I once saw a weed defined as any plant growing where you didn’t want it

    it actually reminds me of a green spring hydrangea bulb of petals! rushing to the end of the story, instead of waiting for the tree to grow 🙂

    i love your composition of walkiing on the tree trunk to avoid stepping i=on the shamrocks… perfect for St Patty’s day Sherri… i love weeds as much as i do the cultivated flowers…
    it’s not the camera that makes the picture… it’s the eye behind the lens….peter:)

    A find that is so apropos for the holiday!! I’ve never seen a clump of clover weeds so large.

    methinks I would like some of those in my tiny garden. Oh and I really love what Meyerowitz had to say.
