Beautimous

22 06 2008

On the way home from the Alexandria Red Cross Waterfront Festival last Sunday afternoon, my sister Debbie and I drove past this incredible bank of orange daylilies on Russell Road in Alexandria. I only had two little point-n-shoot digital cameras with me, so you’ll have to bear with me on the amateurish collage effect! I was so taken by this mass of umpteen flowers all in a colorful profusion of orange and green that I just had to turn around to record it. If you live in the Old Towne or Del Ray areas, be sure to check it out! I think it spans the front of at least two to three homes (hidden behind the large trees). If you click on the photo, you’ll see a little bit more of the image.

I should drag out my Fuji Panoramic G617 film camera and try to get a REAL panoramic shot of it. It’s the perfect subject for that camera and I haven’t used it in years.
