26 fridays/week 13/from a different vantage

foxgloves make me happy for the the way they seem filled with fairytales, for their wildness and their audacious beauty.

and picking them offends fairies

Sara Kelly - I love the perspective in the first one, an audacious shot for audacious beauty. You are a lyricist in both word and image. I love imagining you on your back taking this photo, thinking about your aperture, worrying about the grey sky, which turns out to be one of the best parts of the image, loving the foxgloves. These images and your words just scream you all over, and it’s such a lovely day I see.

pamela joye - and these do indeed feel right out of your little fairytale land of life that you lead. the soft open focal length just adds a beautiful dreaminess to these. and the first one looking up – i feel like thumbalina.

Ginger - I looooove foxgloves! They remind me of the pacific northwest, the magical place I once lived. I love your new site and the softness in these images. Did you know that they are used to make heart medicine (if I remember correctly) and they are toxic?

Lili - thank you Ginger, i would love to visit the pacific northwest… the images i have seen from there do look magical, but i didn’t know they had foxgloves there! yes i knew both those things about foxgloves i used to have a horse and i remember having to keep the foxgloves out of the field! i thought of you whilst i was thinking what to write for this post… i have a beautiful book called “a first book of wild flowers” that is dated 1914. it is completely divine in the way it speaks of each flower – on the page about foxgloves it says ‘…But you will always find it seeking the companionship of ferns…” and i thought of your fern. just such a beautiful way to think of flowers! xo
