Photo Friday: Manual time-lapse

I love flowers. Especially in my backyard where I can watch them unfurl and unfold changing the landscape right before my eyes.  For the past few weeks, I watched the coneflowers progress.

Here’s what I saw.

Wow!  What a change.  I’m not sure which stage I like best.  Perhaps it’s like raising children.  Each stage seems the most beautiful, until the next stage reveals new glories. Whadaya think?

What’s in your lens this week?  For more splendid photos, please visit Pierced Wondering by clicking on the box below. She has lots of colorful flowers to look at, but it’s the black and whites that I found most striking this week.  Gorgeous and haunting cemetery scenes. That reminds me to take some photos of an old cemetery nearby.  Maybe for next week.

      Mother Nature is amazing. I love how almost everything has an ugly or bitter or tough stage, too. That’s just the wa life is.

  3. Great series of shots. It’s interesting seeing the progress in each picture.

      It was the first time I looked so closely at the green, pre- flower stage.

  4. Love the aperture on these – I think the 2nd might be my fav but they’re all really pretty.

      Thank you Hannah. I like the close up, too. And the one with the tiny mite.

  5. I love coneflowers and that color is exquisite. I miss having a garden, even though I literally have a brown thumb Thanks for sharing. LOL

      Thanks Dina. Love-one and I have such different ideas on gardening. He’s very careful, studying and planning. I say, just throw the seeds in. Life wants to live.” Over the years he’s come to appreciate my efficiency, if not my wisdom.

    Absolutely beautiful! I think my favorite is the second one…and it reminds me that I want to take some photos of the devil trumpets we have (their growing seed pods) as well as one of our hibiscus – it starts the day one color and shifts to almost a completely different color as the day goes on.

    Thank you for joining us at Photo Friday!

      I love all the photos and photographers highlighted on your site, Jen. I’m more of a word perso, but photography helps me think in different angles.
