I love to see daylilies growing alongside highways. They seem to have attitude, a sense of “I’ll grow anywhere!”. These particular flowers were not found growing along a roadside, but beside my long-neglected pond. They have a similar attitude here and bring a bit of color and beauty to what is otherwise a green mess of weeds surrounding a mosquito breeding ground. Perhaps the sight of them will encourage me to rehab the pond and plant new things to accompany the daylilies. Who knows, maybe I’ll even get more fish. Until there are new koi, this will be the only bit of orange among the rocks.

I bought my first SLR camera (a Yashica TL-ELECTRO) when I was 17 and imagined I would become a great photographer. My love of photography, unfortunately, was thwarted by a photo-journalism class (the first "C" in college, but not the last!) as well as several packages of accidentally exposed photo paper and the high cost of film on a student budget. An unexpected gift of a Canon Rebel xSI four years ago reawakened those old, dormant dreams. A bit wiser now, I knew that photog instructor was full of bs even if technically he was pretty good. I began snapping away and haven't looked back. Mostly, I shoot nature photography because flowers and rocks don't talk back at you when you pose them.
