As everyone who has ever spent any considerable time behind a camera lens can surely attest to, even though we all quite regularly find ourselves taking pictures that we are very happy with, it is a much less frequent occasion when we snap that shot that actually makes even we who shot it, perk up and take notice when we see it later on the big screen as we develop and work on the day’s results. In all the time that I’ve been taking pictures, I can honestly say that my list of favorite shots can still be counted on the fingers of my two hands. Perhaps that just means I’m a lousy photographer, or maybe it means I’m too critical of my own work. Whatever it means, as of today, the number of shots in that list, just went up by one. To celebrate, I thought I would give the picture a posting all it’s own. I don’t even know what kind of flower it is, and since it was growing on the boulevard, I don’t really know who it might belong to. Anyway, it’s a beautiful little flower, and for better or worse, here is my picture of it.
