    I told you I still had to give myself this year's dandelion fix - photos of this ever so common flower that is happily called a weed, and that fascinates me to no end by its bright, yellow colour (I like them better when they are still yellow).

    So yesterday, I took my little digital camera and walked as far as into our garden (ta-daaa! sportive, eh?) to give me Part 1 of the Fix. You may share it with me (or leave it, if you don't like dandelions, or flowers in general). Get ready for a lot of YELLOW now:

    And a perspective that I could only manage with the new, little digital camera:

    Now I still have to go out and get a whole FIELD of dandelions...!

    Well, I feared it would be too yellow a theme... it's just that I tested my little digital Canon out on these once more, fiddling and meddling with the manual settings... not that I always know well what I am doing there..........

    Ah, another idea is springing to mind: I wonder how they would look in a black border. Could anyone put a border around the square one with the direct on-view of the dandelion for me? Or around any other that you think could need a border?

    These are great, the third is my favorite. Dandelions make great subjects, the very first photograph I ever took was of a dandelion :)

    LaFoto very colourful, I would have never thought of taking pictures of one. If they ever appear on my lawn I kill them. Which leads me to a question. How do you get Weed Killer off a computer monitor? Just a Habit!

    The fact I sprayed my monitor was a testimony to how real they really looked on screen. You have captured them well.
