Server Update:

This weekend, I went through a server update.  I can say, it is finally finished.  I would say that it was hard work, but, since I have a shared hosting plan with a friend, he took care of it.  We now have new hamsters under the hood.  Thanks for your patients.

Wild Flowers

I was telling the story of meeting a bear on Goforth Creek to my brother.  I was describing the area and he mentioned that he thought that was where a woman and small child had been attacked a year or two ago.  Good thing that bear just walked on by.  Can’t imagine what it would have been like if it had gotten between me and the children.  Anyways, this was a flower that we found on the edge of a field about a mile back into the woods along the creek.  I have no idea what the flower is, but it was like little trumpets.

For the past three years, I have tried my hand at gardening.  Some people would call it a small farm since it is a half acre.  One of the tricks that I have heard from some of the other gardeners is that you can plant garlic around the garden to keep deer out.  It did not work for me.  I resorted to a couple farm dogs in the area fenced for the garden.  However, it is pretty neat to see the garlic sprout, grow this long stalk and ball like flower on top.  I just happened to catch this one with a visitor.

If you click on the photo, you can see the additional visitors along the base of the individual little flowers.  They are the little black dots.

I think builders compete with each other to construct and decorate their buildings.  That includes the landscaping and sometimes they come up with some interesting stuff.  This was just a random flower bed in Midtown Atlanta.  I’m sure it has some significance since it was designed around a large statue looking thing.  I thought the flowers were more picturesque than the statue though.

The Pink Flowers

A short post today.  Being sick is not so much fun and tends to hamper the photographic adventures.  However, I had a lot of fun this summer playing with depth of field.  This was one of those shots from my adventures in “Finding the Small Things”.  Just looking around the house, you never know what you will find.
