#256 Sweet Daisy


You wouldn’t believe that I don’t even like flowers. But when it comes to shooting, I shoot what I can see. I imagine it would be hard to shoot what I can’t see.

  1. Love the flower photograph. I cannot believe that you don’t like flowers! Is there are reason, fascinated to know? I dislike carnations intensely but otherwise I love flowers. Such a great picture. Glad you decided to take the picture even though you don’t like them. They obviously like you ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Carnations! These are the worst! You see, there was this tradition in former Eastern Bloc countries to present a single carnation on Mother’s Day, so carnations are in general very unpopular where I live because people associate them with the former political regime.

      My dislike for flowers partly originates from my “rebelling without cause” against conventions and things mainstream; and partly from what happens when you get cut flowers. They are pretty the first day but then you watch the flowers wilting, which I don’t like to do.

      I do like cacti though, as long as this counts as flower ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping and commenting!

      1. Thanks Mara for replying. Fascinating and yes you are right why cut a living thing and then watch it die and that’s what is happening if you really think about it! Also in our discussion I have learnt something about your part of the world. I knew there was a good reason to dislike carnations! I appreciate your sharing.


        1. Thank you for indulging me! You’re too kind to call my comment informative rather than boring to death ๐Ÿ˜‰ Of course, the teacher in me is very flattered by this…
