"Shake it Off", song-ography edition . . .


. . . "can't stop, won't stop moving"

- Shake it Off, Taylor Swift






There was a little mayhem and chaos on my front porch this weekend as I tried to photograph
tulips and poppies. The wind, it just wouldn't stop moving. . .



[KK taped edge]


. . . and the flowers and I couldn't keep up with all the grooving.
(Okay, so I'm really stretching this weeks song)

It probably started out in the thirties early Saturday morning, but because I had a bloom
on the poppy I went to the front porch in search of some light, and all I got was wind.

Now, I'm a pretty patient person, so I stuck it out for a little while, and then since I
just couldn't "shake it" I packed it in and came inside...with the plant.

That's when something magical happened, or at least for me. There were two buds that
were already split open, just enough to see the color and suddenly the pods popped off
and the flowers started to open like I was watching time lapse photography!

Literally, right before my eyes these flowers opened up, and it was magical! 
I've never seen a flower open up that fast before, have you?

I would love for you to pop over here, to Focusing on Life, where I'm sharing
some thoughts on our new monthly theme (link won't be live til 3 am PST). And then why not
consider adding photos of the theme to our flickr group. You just may be 
featured one Saturday morning on the blog!

Happy Tuesday,
love, Kim

Even if it means stretching the song a little it is moving,moving!

So great you got to see a flower open. :) The flowers are beautiful. I love being able to see all the detail in close up images, so much I don't notice until I look closer...

Poppies are SO gorgeous and I've seen some pretty quick blooms in my garden and I always get excited!

So pretty and you are so lucky to have seen them bloom!

That's amazing to see them open up before your eyes. I love poppies……they look like crepe paper.

Carola Bartz said...

I've never seen a flower opening up that fast - lucky you!! I like the first photo, it is mysterious - you could use it as a texture!
Great post to the song!

Interesting; flowers and birds have that movement thing in common. Birds are hard to catch being still too.

Kim Cunningham said...

The first is so cool and looks like art to me. How fun that you got to experience the time lapse in real life. I've tried to catch that in the moment but have never succeeded.

Stephanie said...
