Let me know which is your favorite and why.
In the Lens section is my entry for this week’s Wordless Wednesday. Even in this wordless challenge, I am compelled to celebrate with images and words. My Ode to Narcissus is my 200th post. It’s a milestone and so I say: happy blogging to me.
To honor this occasion I selected four photographs of the dreamy narcissus. For me it rises high above the daffodil, and stays there to lift my spirit. In Greek myth Narcissus was entranced with his own reflection, and upon his death was turned into a narcissus.
For me this multi-colored spring child mirrors all that the season will become: reawakening and renewal and transformation. Those perky flowers bring retrieval of color to spark our visual landscape.
The Back Story: When I discovered Wordless Wednesday, the notion that my blog, which focuses on lens and pens, would occasionally go wordless was not necessarily a conflict. For me, photography has always been about its visual language. So here I am with my ninth submission (first was on 19 February 2013), and (yes), still creating words.
Note: As always I welcome comments about this post or any part of my blog.
