No Parking Allowed

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 10 September 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

...the sign said. With the engine still running and Mike in the car, does that constitute that I am 'parked'? ... These azaleas were so full and beautiful but in the low light, showed little contrast.
The image has been 'posterized'.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

With the motor running and driver present that is not parking! :-) A fine shot of the beautiful flowers which contrast so well with the grave stones.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

With Mike in the car and the engine still running the car would be "standing", not parked. :-) A beautiful capture of these stunning azaleas!! They make great standouts in this compo!

@Steven: Ah, "standing;" that sounds good. ;D

Jeff from Pembroke Dock, United Kingdom

@Jeff: Why does that not surprise me? It truly was beautiful but we'd need a crane to lift it! ;D

And beautifully posterized, at that. It deserves a frame and a prominent display.
