Wee Bit of Urban Paradise

Keeping to my goal of posting something each day, I share an outtake and humbly ask your understanding. I haven’t felt well most of today—and that is quite unusual for me, being someone blessed with hearty constitution. I suppose that my problem could be SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2)/COVID-19. But symptoms say otherwise. No fever or other markers manifest.

Please pardon my being brief on this fine Tuesday evening, therefore. The Featured Image comes from Leica Q2 on Aug. 5, 2022. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/5.6, ISO 100, 1/60 sec, 28mm; 6:11 p.m. PDT.

The photo is the alternative to the one used to remember mom’s passing five years ago. She favored purple, and bird of paradise opened a way to discuss where she might be today, if you believe in such things: Paradise, with her Lord. But the composition, no matter how edited, doesn’t work for me—much as the flowers delight. But maybe it works for you?
