Elephant Ear

We have hit a milestone! This is the 200th posting in a Flower a Day, without a single day missing your flower email in your inbox or feed (although I know a few have had my emails blocked…). I confess that I didn’t have any idea how long I would be able to keep finding ones to share, especially through the winter, or words to try to upbuild and cheer. Thanks especially to all who do more than just look at the photographs and read the posts, as the two are meant to work as a whole. A picture is worth a thousand words but I never worry about adding just a few more to brighten someone’s day if possible. In this case I have to thank a good friend who called to say she had an elephant ear begonia to photograph if I wanted. The dramatic effect of this photograph is due to photographing it at night in low light, with Steven holding my flashlight again to brighten the scene. We can bring our own light where there seems to be none. Thanks for sticking with me so far, friends. Hugs to all.

  1. Congratulations on this milestone, Ellie and thank you for sharing all those flowers-a-day. Today’s flower cluster is sweet and delicate, making it a PFD. Yay! As there is no sign of the elephant’s ear, I will assume this cluster serves as it’s earring, adorning the leaves from which the plant gets its name. They do a wonderful job and are properly served by the photographer’s capture and the assistant light holder. Thank you, Ellie.

    1. Thanks Janet! I’m glad to have had you along for the ride. The elephant’s ear, as is usual, was rather too high up to get into this frame, unfortunately. But it was definitely there, doing whatever elephant ears do when not being photographed. I’m also happy that this PFD works for you and I will pass on our compliments to my assistant. On to the next ones… 😀

  2. Oh well done Ellie, and thank you for all the wonderful photos which have brought so much joy into our lives at this very difficult time. I know at times it’s been a struggle for you, which makes each photo so much more special. x

    1. Thank you so much for those kind words, Prue. It’s not easy for so many. We are all in this together. I’m so glad to think that it might cheer others. It’s certainly a welcome distraction for me at times. XO
