Daffy days

My lovely daughter brought these home for me the other day. A women was selling them for American Cancer Society. I love photographing flowers, when the sun hits the petals and they appear translucent, yet cast shadows. This is a recipe for very dramatic floral photos. I know the best shot photos are never in direct sunlight, but I love drama. Note the snow out the window in sharp contrast with the springy daffodils. It pays to find the humor in the Great Lakes region.


  1. Lovely, and the contrast is beautiful! I don't know when this tradition began, but a long time ago I decided it wasn't officially spring until I saw a daffodil!
