The small purple bell-shaped flower of the Campanula is delicate and very pretty. ”Get Mee” is the American name given to the same plant that is known in Europe as the “Dalmation Bellflower.”

While photographing flowers will always be my first love, I decided to explore the world of abstracts after I saw a post on Ed Knepley’s Photography Improvement blog, calling for abstract exhibit entries.
Learning to ‘see’ things differently and pay attention to the world around is what every photographer does but it was still a challenge to find something abstract that had the contours, lines and colours that appealed to me. Although I still have lots to learn this was a fun experience and I will certainly keep trying.
I tried several themes, angles and locations but ultimately I chose this one:
You can view this photo along with several other beautiful abstract photographs in the gallery.
Other contenders I considered for the submission included these:

Saturday 8 March is International Women’s Day.
Women’s equality has made positive strides but inequalities across the globe are rampant. International Women’s Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing world attention on areas requiring further action. How will you be marking the day?
The first sunny morning this week so decided to take a stroll around the block with my camera. Been playing around with the ISO to reduce the noise so was happy to come across these pretty African daisies.

Our local park is coming alive with the sights and sounds of Spring. It is usually rather busy so it took me a while to get the path without people on it. A group of gentleman that had just completed their morning Tai Chi session however was such a lovely sight that I didn’t mind watching them walk down the blossom-lined avenue. A picture of friendship.
