This is my very humble attempt at an Ansel Adams look in one of the most beautiful national parks in the world.  This is for Day 2 of the B&W Challenge issued by Su and, finally, an entry in Six Word Saturday.  🙂

Although this might not be what you think of when you think of flowers, thistles are flowering plants.  Providing nectar for some insects and butterflies, they also furnish food for one of my favorite birds, the goldfinch. I love the purple topknot that looks like a funky little hat.

I have no idea what this is (input invited), but I love the delicate little waxy flowers and the graceful curves of the stem.  And doesn’t this quote from Shakespeare make you want to lie down on the bank he describes?

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine. 
~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

A flower blossoms for its own joy.

It was a toss-up this week as to whether I would go with a Wordless Wednesday post or wait for the photo challenge.  Not that I don’t love seeing all your entries, but it takes a lot of time to view and (as I always try to do) comment.  That’s why last week, with extra work days for me, had to be a Wordless Wednesday post.  But today it’s back to the Photo Challenge, whose theme today is “Rounded.”

I love these rounded edges I found while wandering in the Bighorn Mountains this August.

As always, but especially during the photo challenge, I appreciate the time many of you take to comment as well as to hit “like.”  I know it takes time, which is short supply all too often!

There aren’t just flowers in the park, there are also the natives.  On the morning of all the flowers, there was a plethora of rabbits as well.  This one was eating, but you can bet his/her little eye is well-fixed on me.  🙂

Welcome to another Wednesday, the first one of October, if you can believe it (and even if you can’t.)  If I could find a time machine, I’d slow time down a bit, but all my local sources seem to be sold out.

Today’ Photo Challenge theme is “Pedestrian”, which gives several possibilities for interpretation.  My laptop is moving at less than the speed of a pedestrian of the human kind, unfortunately, but I can’t send you a photo of it happening, so I’ll have to look elsewhere for inspiration.

I spend much time as a pedestrian of the walking kind and there are many shots you can’t get unless you’re taking your time.  Walking around Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles at night allowed me to take this anything but pedestrian photo of the city.
