Day 535 - Against all odds

ISO 200, 105mm, f/6.3, 1/60 sec

Calla lillies are probably my favorite flower. I love the simplicity of the blossom and the gentle curves.

Years ago, my father-in-law planted this in our garden. When I moved in with Karen, I dug it up and brought it with me.

This plant is a survivor and so forgiving. I'm a terrible gardener. I never water, never feed and never ever weed. It's a target for slugs and yet, when I looked out the window this evening, it had two perfect blossoms.


  1. I absolutely love your blog. I found it from another members page. Your images are beautiful! I'm still learning so I find your photography very inspiring! I checked out a lot of your post and I liked every single one! :-)

  2. Oh! The subtlety of the light - magic!!

  3. I've always loved callas, too! That is one lovely capture. I think there's something really enduring about those plants that we take with us. I have some plants here that we've collected from various family members' homes that we loved. Now that many of them have passed away, the plants have greater value to me.
