Red Flowers in a Puddle

I thought we'd start the week off with an abstract. Since we have rain and snow again this morning, here are giant red metal flower sculptures known as the Magnolia Gateway reflected in a puddle in the Magnolia neighborhood. "Metal artists, Jean Whitesavage & Nick Lyle, of Whitesavage & Lyle fabricated the steel magnolia blossoms and madrona buds" in 2002. Why madrona and magnolia? Check here.

Eye-catching, Kim. I love red and gray together. It's still cold today (see my photo) and there were a few flakes coming down on Saturday...

I love this sliver of clarity...and then the realization that nothing is truly clear, nor what it seems to be. Wonderful thought-provoking shot.

I would never have known those reflected giant red metal flower sculptures!

Good eye! It's a dramatic photo.

We can engage in a conversation about photo equipment and "how to's" if you wish, Kim. I'd be happy to share what little I know...just send me an e-mail at yanson2@aol.com...

Thanks for coming by The Villages DP!

It's lovely Kim. Sorry you're having snow this late in the season. That's a BUMMER. Well at least you have these bright metal ones for the time being. !!!

Beautiful shot! Snow again? I don't see any over here on Capitol Hill, but maybe I just got up too late. ;-)

Very neat. Love the pop of red. How many more places do I have to look to see things. My neck is getting tired. LOL MB
