Lens-Artists Challenge #46 – Delicate

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever]
[Right-click on photos may allow you to open in a new tab or window.]
[Photos this week are hosted on another WordPress site.]

The challenge this week is led by Ann-Christine/Leya.

Water seems delicate.  Fluid, flowing.  Though we try to control it, direct it, capture it to do our bidding, we know it is a force to be reckoned with that will do what water naturally does.

I think the nature of economics is a lot like the nature of water, but that is another story.

There was water on iris petals last Friday at the Denver Botanic Gardens, where the previous pictured fountain resides also.

There were many fine blooms, and buds promised more iris to come for several weeks.

Speaking of delicate, is not the Eiffel Tower that?  It looks both imposing and graceful.  As I stood in the very top observation deck some years ago, and wondered what I was doing at the top of a hundred year-old erector set (toy construction kit), I hoped it was not too delicate!

Enjoy.

    I like your reflections on water being delicate, John. I had never thought about it that way! The Eiffel Tower though is delicate in construction.

  3. Tina Schell says:

    I feel the same way about the Tower John! Why it still stands is a mystery LOL

  4. I like your choices, the Eiffel Tower wouldn’t have immediately come to my mind but made sense once I thought about it.

  5. Wow awesome photos! Love the focus on those flowers.
