Lovely, lovely photographs. I think the last one is my favourite.

Thanks for your comment on my blog the other day :)

Marvelous photos, Lucy! Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic photos again! I had to look up the word 'umbellifers' and must say that most of these look very unlike the lowly parsley!

Some look very pregnant.

exclamation!

Beautiful. Oh, to see through your eyes. Or at least your viewfinder!

OOOOoooooOOOOOhhhh!
Such a lovely collection of wonderful images.

There is so much beauty in this world. It just takes someone with vision to slow us down to where we can see it.

Thank you.

It sounds like "Any unbelievers?" in a foreign accent.

Lucy said...

Damn, Richard! Just when I thought I might have got the earworm for the Umbrella Man song out at last, you go and put it back with a new twist! Now the idea of someone walking the neighbourhood asking if there are 'any unbelievers' that need to be fixed is no longer merely nonsensical but downright sinister. (Anyway, it's lovely to hear from you all the same.)
Thanks all,(and Welcome Suse!) for such kind comments; really it's all down to a reasonable camera and nature to look at, especially the same bits of nature again and again, so one gets past boredom with repetition and starts looking at detail and subtle changes. I don't know what the different umbelliferous plants are, those big purplish ones do look very bulbous and gravid!
(Annie, oh to draw like you!)

Lucy, you could make magic with a pinhole camera if it's all you had. You're a natural talent, seeing incredible beauty in things most of us walk past every day.

Wonderful, as always.

Lucy said...

Thank you both, you're not so bad yourselves!
