Wordless Wednesday: Fall Daisies
Here’s my contribution for this week’s Wordless Wednesday – fall daisies (also called brown eyed susans).
A variation of this is also the new header for my blog this month.

The Black- eyed Susans are beautiful choice for a blog header. Yellow shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness and shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future.
It really does do that – thanks for pointing that out!
Daisies (and tulips) are my favourite flowers. Great shot!
I used to have favorites, but now I think I’m liking them all. That stand of daisies was incredible and I took quite a while photographing every angel I could think of. I’m sure a week later they looked spent (ratty).
Lovely — I love the golden color!
That is a great shot. Note cards would be nice, too. :)
Thanks Patti. I gave notecards for Christmas presents last year. I might do calendars this year instead. If I do, I’ll send you one.
Nice! Thanks, Nancy. :)
Both versions are striking. Anna S may have a point that your photos are marketable as prints — not sure how that would work for you given the time involved and a pro in the family.
My husband’s been encouraging me to exhibit at the art fairs with him. He thinks I might even sell better than he does because my pictures have a broader appeal. The time commitment though does have me leery. I’m still thinking about it, although he’s right that my work is better than most others who are there.
I am thrilled that your husband has mentioned that you show your work. I assume that means he would help with the printing, mounting. But I understand that it still would mean more time for you editing, sorting, etc. Whatever you decide it is wonderful that he has honored your accomplishments with the suggestion. Would you have to go through a jury? I was thinking of Jen’s Northeast Kingdom Photography Esty shop site .
Thanks for the lovely note Kitty. Yes, he has offered to help me get them printed, mounted, set up at the art fairs, use his credit card machine, etc. I would have to be juried, but I don’t think that will be a problem to get in.
The bigger problem is that photography is not selling at the art fairs or galleries. Both have been dropping photographers for that reason and my husband is looking at going back to his painting which seems to have a better market. As we’ve talked further about it, the investment of time and effort for the art fair circuit just doesn’t seem worth it for me.
Having said that, I am giving thought to marketing on-line through my blog instead. I could do it this year if I spend the next few weeks doing only that. Needless to say, I’m not sure I feel like rushing it that much.
Thanks for your support! I do appreciate it. It’s been giving me something to think about.
What a great compliment from the queen of taking pretty pictures herself! Thank you!
I call them BLACK-eyed susans! ;)
I hadn’t heard that before, but when I looked it up on the Internet, they are variations of the same type of flower. Some of the common names I use are probably local variations too (I’m from the Midwest, not the mid-Atlantic).
On the other hand, it doesn’t matter what their name is – they’re just pretty.
I agree! “A rose by any other name, is just as sweet…” ;)
THIS WAS YOUR GRANDMA’S FAVORITE FLOWER. THEY GROW WILD IN SOME FARM AREAS…VERY PRETTY…THANK YOU
I didn’t know that – thanks for telling me! I’m glad you liked it.
Oh my, you must have an awesome camera! I would totally hang this picture on my wall!
Maybe Santa should bring you this for Christmas :) Seriously though, when you first started following my blog and shared how the photographs just brightened your day, I realized that I needed to be more diligent in sharing the beauty and laughter as my creative gift to the world. I do appreciate your commenting on that to me.
My hubby wants me to exhibit at the Richmond Art Fair with him. I’m not sure I want to take time to do it, but I’m giving it some thought. Registration starts next month.
