Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: One Single Flower

For Cee’s challenge this week I thought I would snap some photos on my walk today. There aren’t too many flowers out right now, but I thought it would be fun to search for some. What I didn’t count on was the wind. Each time I got the camera in macro mode and was ready to snap, the wind kicked up. I was able to get two photos that weren’t completely blurry, but nothing spectacular.

My other challenge today was Miles. He was in a mood. He wanted to chase all the leaves that the wind stirred up and not sit still for me to take photos. And when I told him to sit, he would bark his head off. Then I tried to take a photo of him barking, but he was so worked up, I couldn’t get a decent photo of him. Can you feel his anger?

Here is a photo of a flower I took in London this past weekend. Wind and Miles were not an issue.

    I have the same thing going when I want to take photos. First: Trompie sit, WAIT, sit! By the time I am ready to take the photo of a flower the wind blows it from side to side and then again it is Trompie’s turn to try his luck. Anyway I still enjoy taking him out and taking photos. I can see Miles isn’t happy at all with what you are doing! 🙂

      He wasn’t happy one bit. And to make it worse, I forgot to bring his red ball. Oh boy, that didn’t go over well. Trompie and Miles should go off together so we can take our photos.

  2. This post was so cute that it made me smile, although Miles does look a bit like a demon dog LOL. I love your flowers by the way, especially since ours are done for the year here :).

    I love the flower photos! And Miles is adorable, even if he is barking!

  4. Flowers that bloom tomorrow my favourite (and strangely, quite like the spray can flowers I featured today, though made of completely different materials!) Also loved the 2nd pic – simple flowers are so pretty 🙂

    Lovely and I know your frustration with the wind!

    Thats the Triffid!!!!!!!!! you may remember me mentioning when I visited Chatsworth last christmas they had placed a giant sculpture bang slap in the middle of the cascading water feature that spoilt me getting the picture I wanted well it was either that one or its double, I am hoping it was that one then if we make it back there this christmas I can get my photo 😀

    • TBM says:

      For your sake, I hope it’s the same one. I did hear that this flower won’t be in London permanently. Oh I really hope your picture isn’t spoiled again.

    Lovely photos, TBM 🙂
    I like the last one the best…that’s a very colorful art

    Love your flowers. I often have the same problem…just as I take out my camera and set it on macros, the wind starts blowing! I think Murphy lives in my shadow… That last shot is so interesting and different! What on earth is it made of? Clay, porcelain, steel?

  9. The photo of Miles is hilarious! Rocky does funny things with his ears, but as soon as I get the camera out, he’s done.

    I love the art flower!! How unique!! And of course I adore Miles and your other flower photos too. Thanks for playing along and having some fun!!

    I tried to take photos of MasterB playing in the wind today. Not very successful. Did you get to Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition at the Tate earlier this year?

  12. Bright, colorful, fun. Miles did look like he had the best time walking ….thanks for sharing all these.

    After angry bird.. anger dog 🙂

  14. Fluffy Tufts says:

    Wow! I LOVE the shot of the flower sculpture 🙂

  15. buddhafulkat says:

    Despite the wind and Miles you captured some beautiful shots. I love the flower sculpture!

    I like the plastic flower. I don’t want to brag, but my greek stray dog is the perfect companion taking photos. I say “wait” and he stands waiting by my side ’til I’m done. Unfortunately that doesn’t work with my Jacky, to much energy, I guess.

  17. Fergiemoto says:

    Lovely flower photos! You did well in the wind.
    Miles is adorable!
