“I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of golden daffodils
Beside the lake beneath the trees
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”

~ William Wordsworth, I Wander’d Lonely as a Cloud

For some reason I find it challenging to shoot daffodils. Sure, I can get an image of them the same as I can any other flower, but photography for me is just as much about feeling as it is creating a photo that looks nice. While I love the sunny cheerfulness of daffodils they just don’t seem to speak to me the way other flowers do.

Yesterday I pulled out my 60mm macro lens and found something sweet in simply getting closer.

I’m a writer, reader, photographer, and gardener. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
