Photo Monday – Sleeping Nature

I had absolutely no inspiration for photography this weekend. No clue where I wanted to go, what I wanted to see. Nothing. I ended up in Prospect Park (again) because E wanted me to watch her skate. After her class, I wandered around the LeFrak Center where she takes her classes. The landscape was grey and bare. I went up to the roof to look for something (there are plants up there).  Almost all the plants were yellow and brown.  The green ones were too far for my camera (would have been fine with the macro or telephoto lens but I had the wide angle zoom). And then I got closer and the texture of these sleeping plants was fascinating! Even the greys, browns, and yellows became interesting. Bonus: I got more intimate landscape practice in.

(Not a plant but once I got going, everything got more interesting.)

I have to go back with the macro.

    I love these! I usually think of brown plants as boring or even ugly, but in these they are beautiful! I particularly like the third photo.

    • Thank you! From far, it really just looks like a sea of yellow-brown. No matter how often I get close and see the details, I’m always surprised by all the hidden texture and beauty. That third one you liked looks like flowers but I think it’s just the leftover base of flowers that are long gone. They still look romantic (in real life, they’re so tiny!)

I love reading your comments! I will try to respond to every single one.
