12.05.2013 The honour of your click is humbly requested.

I rarely visit Google+.  Andrew got me interested a while back and I frequented the social site for a while but, for some unknown reason, it just doesn’t appeal to me in the same way as Facebook.  And there is only so much time in the day.  But while spending time there this past summer, I had the good fortune to make the acquaintance of Ebenezer Baldwin Bowles and Crow’s Cottage  Some of you may have already seen/read the collaborations of Ebenezer and Andrew and Eb and I did one before.

A short while back I posted some images of lotuses and Ebenezer took a liking to one in particular.  I provided him with that image and some mumblings of my own which he has spiffed up quite nicely and turned into a very nice post regarding the history of the Sacred Lotus.  Please click the image to see the article.Crow's-Cottage-LotusI hope you enjoy Ebenezer’s work as much as I.  And thanks for taking a look.

    The collaboration works extremely well, Steve and your lotus is a fine centrepiece for the article. The subtle tones are very attractive. Thanks for the links, too!


  2. Just Rod says:

    Beautiful photograph. I enjoyed the collaborative piece. Who knew there was so much history to the Lotus?


    • Thanks, Rod. There is a lot of history with the lotus. The first I knew about was some Tantric art with the lotus as a centerpiece. But left to my own devices none of the wonderful history in the piece would have been added without Ebenezer’s diligence.


  3. I am most impressed with this article but also depressed on this very cold, bleak, overcast, windy, drab and dull day. Do you get the idea that I am very upset about the “northerly blast” that I am quite sure Rod sent here from Winnipeg?

    A excellent read that is wonderfully written with an unusual photo of the lotus. The subtle coloring is outstanding. Love this one too.

    Now I am off to Cabella’s for new thermal johns and cover-alls since i think i got mine mixed up with my husbands’s outdoor sporting wear that went to Goodwill.I go outdoors several times a day and well one has to dress to stay warm and not get chilled…..


    • I am glad that you are going to bundle up, Yvonne. Take care so as not to get seriously ill from the unusual cold hitting your part of the country. I heard that the air is from the
      Arctic, so it must have past right through Rod’s home town on the way there.
      Thanks for reading and enjoying the post.

    Nicely done all around. The photo still is the best part – absolutely fantastic colour and details.


  5. It’s grand to work together on fun things. I grow more and more weary of politics and social discord — necessary evils I suppose but wearisome all the same. Flora and fauna when engaged by the naturalist with a camera or a notebook become the most wonderful of pursuits. Thanks, Stephen, for your wonderful pursuits — and for the shout-out regarding Crow’s Cottage. I appreciate it very very much.


    • I return the thanks for both the collaborative post and the recognition the image receives from that collaboration. It is fun to see these things come to fruition. The Crow’s Cottage mention is the least I can do.


  6. Those are two excellent collaborations.

    We’d never seen a frosted lotus
    Till you brought one to our notice.

    Beautiful shot, Mr. Steve. Although I like the wide open space of landscape photography, where the majesty of God’s creation cannot help but be noticed, so, too can you appreciate the workings of the Universe in macro photography. Being able to see such fine detail of the Sacred Lotus is a special gift. Very nice collaboration!
    Happy Sunday to you.


  8. Very cool shot Steve. Outstanding. No wonder it’s grabbed attention.

    I love the photo, and the idea. I confess i am only able to skim through – as much as I love botanical history, it’s just too much right now, alas. Life has gotten very busy lately. But I did want to leave word here that I applaud the effort!


    • Yes, there is quite a bit of information that Eb has accumulated for this piece for which I am very grateful. I appreciate you taking a moment to look and leaving a comment, Lynn. Best wishes for a great 2014.
