Reblooming   Leave a comment

It’s 100, at 2:30.  This is not promising for outdoor activities in the next few days — at least for me.

I did get out long enough to spend some time with the peach daylily which is just starting its second round of bloom.  It is the one that the ground squirrels attacked, ending its first round prematurely.  Maybe it’s trying to make up for lost time.

I did a little experimenting, picturing the same flower with and without water droplets, in sun and in shade, and with the Canon PowerShot and the iPhone.  Here are some results.

First, the iPhone.

And with the Canon:

Very interesting, I thought.  The colors are much brighter in the iPhone shots — almost garish.  I like the softer tone of the Canon shots better.  But the thing is — the iPhone shots are closer to the actual color of the flower!

I wish I knew a bit more about photography.  Someday I’ll take a class, and maybe at least learn how to get rid of that hose in the background.

The house is full of napping dogs, Andrew’s as well as mine.  Maybe I should take a hint from them . . .
