The television won’t let us forget that our community is still recouperating from the devastation of the recent ice storm. We continue to count our blessings that our personal lives were only mildly “inconvenienced” rather totally uprooted like so many others.
Do you feel a “but” coming?
But, I’m tired of ice. I’m a little bored. I was certainly ready for fresh inspiration and subjects to photograph.
Yesterday afternoon while getting my bottled water and battery supply re-stocked, I stopped by a local florist thinking I would buy a small bouquet of fresh flowers to photograph. The florist only had “funeral type” arrangements in stock. When I described what I was looking for, they offered me their “mis-cuts” and left-overs. And, when I pulled out my wallet, they said “Put your money away. We would have thrown these away anyway.”
I certainly have found a great deal of pleasure from my un-expected gift. I hope you enjoy, as well.
