It’s a challenge to stay one step ahead of Marcia and make pictures before she cuts the old blooms off. It has been so dry and hot that the blooms don’t last long. I try to look each day.
It is also a challenge to find scenes that work for monochrome images. Actually it is a challenge to make any images this time of the year where I’m living.
Another challenge for me is that my knees and back compete more painfully each year for attention while I’m trying to concentrate on making images.
