Up a creek

it occurred to me today that many things that should be photogenic, don't seem very photogenic to me. they don't call me... they don't grab me. which led me to ponder what does grab me, and while i was thinking about this i saw the prayer flags over our front steps and they grabbed me! all i can say is that it's a complex thing, the reason that we feel compelled to take a photograph of something... a very complex thing...



this jewelweed grabbed me next...



and then, THEN i got to the reason i went outside with my camera in the first place-- this gorgeous lily on the creek bank. once a year, two buds only, this lone, wild lily.



those stamens. can a person ever get enough of gazing at stamens like this? the pollen!



and jazzed up in photoshop... i like this electric version...
