LEADING THE MARCHING BAND


TODAY'S PHOTO -
Once again cropped, yesterday's photo of an orchid at the American Orchid Society.

I couldn't resist sharing with you one more look at yesterday's orchid. This time I cropped right into the center of the flower in the foreground.

Do you too see the leader of a marching band? He's shown from his waist up, arms in the air. Note the TALL hat with a full long brim that's casting maroon shadows on his yellow face. 3 buttons adorn the yellow shirt, exposed slightly above his magenta vest.

The point today is "Have Fun!" Along with this, find some things, visual or otherwise, where you can look more closly and come up with a whole new perspective on what you've been "seeing."

READER COMMENTS ON THE LAST ISSUE - Issue 90
"Funny that Sam mentioned 5th Avenue. I just watched "Easter Parade" last night. The final scene certainly depicts being lost in a "crowd of joy." There are times when it's soothing to be part of the multitude. Certainly these flowers work either way (en masse or individually). Though I swear they look like they have mouths. Snappy little mouths, at that."
Mary Gray

"I love the colors of the orchids!! They are so majestic."
Andee Losben

"Just arrived back from Hawaii yesterday where we saw orchids in the wild all over the place and visited orchid growers and gardens. I do not see this picture as "lost in a crowd", but more like more and more and endless more of incredibly beautiful flowers. Each one individually is so perfect and lovely, but in masses, even more perfect and lovely. I would call it something like 'masses and masses of nature's beauty and perfection'." Toby Blender
