365-167 Here or there or anywhere?

Like usual, I didn’t plan any kind of picture today. Occasionally there are days when I go to a specific location that I think would be a good place for photos but most days I just see what happens. A lot of times when I do have a predetermined photo in mind I end up with my favorite shot being totally different from what I planned or imagined. Some days I’ll take a casual shot, such as todays photos of my neighbors flowers, just for fun but believing that I’ll do some “real” photography later on.  Later on often doesn’t come. I get distracted or the weather goes sour or something and I end up not taking anymore photos that day. Then at the end of the day I upload my photos and realize, “hey, those aren’t too bad!”. I don’t like to overdo flower photos but I kind of like these. I shot todays 365 picture using my Super-Takumar 50mm lens, wide open. The others were with my DA 55-300. I used an orton effect on the pink flowers and the rose is just a rose. Pentax K20D.

    The middle flower has a beautiful and romantic summer haze to it. Excellent
