Shakespeare, Gandhi, and Twain

We needed some flower pots yesterday so, of course, we headed to Maas Nursery in Seabrook. I liked these pots a lot but we ended up going with something more traditional! :-)

Nice job on controlling the exposure considering it was mostly backlit. Another one of your different perspective or subject series that I find interesting.

Has that camera grown attached to your hip yet? I cannot see to carry mine around like you do. As a result I do miss some of these more unusual shots. Kudos to you for taking the extra step of always having a camera with you.

Some how the plants in the pots don't match my preconceived idea of their hair. Maybe three or four pots of Twain with different plants would look OK in your garden?

May be it's just me...the first thing I saw was a nice picture of three Pot Heads.:-)

Thanks for your comments Doug, Wayne and David!

Doug - Since I'm always looking for shots to post on the blog and / or to satisfy the Bay Area Photo Club monthly assignments, I pretty much try to have my camera with me and my eyes open all the time. It's a "labor of love" though! :-)

Wayne - The selection of pots for "my" garden isn't really up to me! :-)

David - I think I like your title for this photo better than mine! :-)
