I’m all about FLAWED. I’ve got that down solid. But PERFECT? Sheesh, the pressure of this assignment!
When I am lucky enough to get a nice macro shot, I often discover that the PERFECT subject is FLAWED. This does not ruin the picture; to the contrary, a slight flaw often highlights perfection.
Less can be more. The moon reflects the sun.

Now could someone please explain to me why I get a pink haze when I use a flash in a dark environment?
Nevermind that I left the flash on when I took this photograph of the moon… or that I really need a significantly improved telephoto lens if I’m going to take pictures of the moon!
That’s what I’ve got this morning.
I’m off today on a 6 hour field trip with seventy-zillion 7th graders.
The Weekly Words Challenge is brought to us by the flawlessly perfect Tink of Pickled Beef.
hey nice pics, and you are SAINTLY for going on a field trip!!!!
Beautiful pics. God bless you on the field trip. You are a better person than me.
You have my sympathies! I would not survive a 6-hour field trip with that many kids.
It is the imperfections that make things interesting.
‘Flaws’ in nature might have to do with the nature of things.
Yeah, even I had a momentary freakout over that word. “Perfect?! Crap. What was I thinking?” Lol. But I think you used the words really well. 🙂
Good luck with the kids.
Very nice photos and interpretations as usual. 🙂 I like the iris especially, I seem to have trouble with those.
What kind of camera/lens do you have?
Oh geez louise, 70-something 7th-graders. You better hope there’s wine in the house when you get home!
Lovely shots and well presented. Ah yes, I remember the field trip days well. Better you than me. 😉
I dunno but I like the pink haze… it’s cool. 🙂 Great photos this week, wow may just be perfect!! Hee hee.
Field trips… yikes!
G-man: You asked about my camera: it’s a Cannon PowerShot A75, purchased 4 years ago. I’m hoping Santa brings me a new slim model that can live in my purse (and therefore go everywhere with me), since I can only dream of a nice big powerful lens.
AJ: the pink haze is okay in this photo (just weird!) but it is annoying on many occasions.
