Not as showy as Texas bluebonnets, but still beloved signposts of spring.  Both of these flowers naturalize like crazy, and can be found in great drifts and patches in shady places, especially in locations that don't get mowed.    DP113-2014  Posted April 23; processed April 22    There are two common six-petaled blue-violet spring bulbs that I see each year.  One has curly petals, faces upward, and has a bold white center.  The other is nodding - the blossoms face downward, or at best sideways.  They have smooth shiny petals of a bluer shade.  I'm 100% sure the latter are a member of the Scilla genus that bears the common name 'Siberian Squill'.  I'm not even sure the former belong to the Scilla genus, though I tend to think so.    Taken April 21 (Ann Arbor)  (Title:  Face Up - Face Down.  Both Scillas?)    Thanks to all who gave my simple daffodil shot such a warm reception yesterday.

April 23, 2014 The colors and light on this maple branch caught my eye.  These gorgeous trees add so much beauty to a yard and garden.  Thank you for your very kind comments on yesterdays maple seed, always appreciated.     One day closer to the weekend and more prom photo booth events. I am very grateful that I am staying busy but will be equally grateful when prom season is over.  Getting home in the early morning hours two  nights in a row makes for a rough weekend and Monday.  I remember a day when being out late all weekend never phased me. My how things change ;-)  Jeanne
April 23 2014 Beer  Cell phone shot  Update:  I thought it was a good beer.  This from the company website: "Bitch Creek perfectly balances big malt sweetness and robust hop flavor for a full bodied, satisfying mahogany ale. Like the stream for which it is named, our Bitch Creek ESB is full of character... not for the timid."
Thank you so much for your many wonderful comments on my poppy  shot yesterday, You really made my day!    For this Tulip picture I used PSE to create a slight watercolor effect which also added a bit of contrast as well. I just loved the single orange among all those pinkish purples
22.04.14 - Quiet Reflection  It was a very different day filming yesterday, entirely inside a tent, capturing the more relaxed moments away from the front. It was quite a bright day and despite laying dark towels on the outside of the tent I still had to close the camera down a bit to get the lamplight look. The actor here is Reece Ackerman who plays Robert Crowder.  Huge thanks again for the wonderful comments on my "trench shot" yesterday. This is a fantastic project to be part of and we can't wait until Autumn when we can show it to everyone. To clarify my role, I am one of three producers and the stills photographer. My images are used for a wide range of publicity purposes, and will also form part of a larger exhibition that will run alongside the finished film where possible.
