Day 306 - Bad Petal Day

Left my picture too late once again. I headed out to the backyard and looked for some possibilities. We haven't quite finished cleaning out the gardens in the back so these poor guys are still standing. I admire their strength to stand even if they've been beaten by the wind and the frost. My mind wondered as it sometimes does and I found myself thinking, "We have bad hair days. I wonder if flowers have bad petal days?"

We could learn from these flowers - there is beauty even in their decay. Yet we don't accept signs of aging in ourselves and try to cover it up.

This is such a classic autumnal photo. Love the wind-swept feeling of the petals too!

This is one of the most interesting flower photos I've ever seen, and the title couldn't be better! Nice job!

This is a lovely shot. The colors and diagonal lines are really nice and you used depth of field to great effect...
