When I look in the mirror, I kind of identify more with the second picture.

How about you?

love them both….but I have to agree, I identify more with the sunflower.

    I’m sure sunflowers have much more fun

Great images, love the colours and the softness of the Roses. Would love to have a bad hair day, but it decided to leave a long time ago :>)

The second, sadly.

    Oh good! Join the fun club for the non-perfect!

Haha! Love the contrast between the two flowers. Thanks for the giggle.

    I keep trying to get good pictures of sunflowers . I’ll keep trying!

      Irene · 10 September 2019 at 20:23

      Helen, both are truly wonderful. If this is you trying, I can’t wait to see what you do when you get the result you want. You accomplished something that is not easy by capturing a creative shot of a sunflower that is not perfect and making it look interesting. Great job.

        Thanks for your kind words. I enjoy the challenge of trying. Maybe my next sunflower will have even worse hair!

          Irene · 10 September 2019 at 20:43

          You are too funny! I hope your next sunflower has bad hair too.
