11.07.2014 Psychedelic Man!

Back in the day, this was the standard phrase….I was never really sure if it was just gender generic in use like the dawn of mankind or not.       🙂

And appropriate to “back in the day” this is one from the archives that I posted on Facebook this morning for a local friend and thought I’d share it here too.

    Is that a fine layer of frost on it? Very delicate.

    Far Out!


  2. I was going to ask whether that was taken recently, but I see above that it was not. Where did you manage to view the Lotus? In a botanical garden? Managed aquatic habitat? Your backyard? When I see ‘lotus,’ I think of software from the ancient past … now extinct, but the predecessor of Excel … do you remember Lotus 1-2-3? So, tell me, is this shot reminiscent of compositions managed by ‘the other Steve,’ … or do his mirror yours? I cannot tell … but the result is awfully nice, for sure. D


    • Yes, I do remember Lotus 1-2-3….but when I think of Lotus as anything besides the flower, this is what comes to mind:

      A very nice lady who lives about 2 miles from here, has a lotus pond in her front yard and allows any and all to visit it. I have also captured images of a few bullfrogs there.

    • As to your other question, I am sure both Steve and I compose our images based on our own sensibilities and, while we are all influenced by every image we see to some extent, neither of us are considering the other Steve’s work as we go about our image making.

  3. I really like this photo. Absolutely gorgeous.


  4. Tye-died it is, and the epitome of that style as conveyed by nature. The frosting is a bit of extra sugar on top to sweeten the image.

    There’s a couple of phrases I haven’t heard for awhile. And it fits the great photo.

    It is just FAB, Steve. True flower power.

    When I first glanced at the image — before I’d really gotten “lotus” in my mind — I saw it as a plate of Linzer cookies. I’ve never experienced a plant as a reminder of the Christmas baking season before. 🙂


    • As much as I enjoy this image, I think I like that one better…especially if it was sitting here in front of me on the desk.
      It is said that sometimes it is better not to tell someone what a piece of art is intended to represent and let the viewer form their own opinion. I am not sure this is an example of that. 🙂
