Morning Song

Purple Rose of Sharon

This purple Rose of Sharon sings her morning song, facing the sunrise. She has only one day to sing as the tightly-rolled buds spin open like an old-fashioned umbrella, then close at dusk, never to open again.

It’s a little grainy for shooting at 800 ISO, trying to see how that works for a pile of solid black cats. Pretty well, but I forget to switch it back before I photograph other things some times.

My Lady’s Bonnet, 2011

Rose of Sharon

The white Rose of Sharon flowers always reminded me of an old-fashioned bonnet or frilly hat, here caught the morning after a rain with water droplets weighing down the petals.


Spent: 2011

A monochromatic display of seed pods from last year’s Rose of Sharon flowers stay sprung open like stiffly shaped stars, capturing the sun in an abstract pattern.
