If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll recognize these flowers,they grow in my yard. Pure luck allowed me to catch the insect in mid-flight on his way to have intimate relations with the flower. (That's what they do, right? The birds and the bees? Maybe I'm misremembering.)
Theoretically, triads are stronger photographically speaking than pairs. Odd numbers in general are thought to be better (more interesting) than even numbers. Your eye is supposed to search for the missing item to complete the image. I can't totally vouch for this, but it feels true.
In recent news, one of my photos was chosen to be put up today on Shutter Sisters. The one word project for September is 'play.' I submitted one photo (because I don't have that many that really capture play) and it was put up today. Here's the link if you want to see it. Check out the rest of their site as well, it's got some really beautiful posts and thoughts about all things photography. (Though, as you may have guessed, it is geared a bit towards the fairer sex. )
And by the way, Happy Birthday Evan!
