I’ve been feeling a bit depressed this week, probably a combination of factors, and not a feeling I am familiar with. I need to leave it behind, but maybe the photo for this week will reflect some of that in it.
As befitting the week, I only shot photos on one day, so I didn’t have much of a variety to choose from, there were two I favoured, so I chose one and hope that someone other than myself would like it, although it is the more “depressing” of the two, I preferred it overall, I will post the other image in a later post.

Michael- I really like this photo showing the petal in the wind. It’s not depressing to me, it’s a clever shot. But when you might be feeling depressed, then suddenly things around you seem depressing. I wish you better days ahead. Maybe if you have good photo day, it can be uplifting. I have days like these too!
Thanks Martina, I am hoping that after tomorrow things will be better 🙂
At least you’ve posted only one. Next week anyone who regularly views my photos will be inundated with lily pictures 🙂
For all that you shot only one day, you got a pretty good one.
Thanks Nik, well, At least one good one is better than none 🙂
Given the world events, I think this image is most appropriate, and symbolic. In fact, I was tempted to post a similar image at one point….
May your heart be lighter this coming week:-)
Thanks Eremophila, I like the wish, I hope it comes to pass. I hadn’t thought of it in terms of world events, but I can see the parallels 🙂
I like it Mike. Windswept but still hanging in there. Brighter days are on the way!
Thanks Sheila, I like that, still hanging in there 🙂 makes me feel a little better already
I think it’s a good shot. Adversity can provide fertile ground for art.
Thanks Mike, sometimes the mood you’re in taints the outlook of a photograph, seen in a different mood, this may look different to me .
Without lows the highs wouldn’t seem so high… Never live in mediocrity. This image would be great in B/W 🙂
Thanks Simon, that is so true… and I agree, it would look great in BW, I have others I will experiment with
Lovely shot Michael. There is a bit of motion on the petals and as others commented this will looks great with monochrome conversion.
Thanks Sasi, I really have to look back at the other photos from that day for a nice monochrome or you guys won’t let me live it down 🙂
