The Smoke Returns


Through My Lens

We’ve been fortunate that for several weeks all of the wildfires in the area were under control. That ended last night when a wild-fire about 70 miles away “blew up.”  A massive cloud of smoke blew in our direction and by 9:00 last night we were enveloped in smoke.  This morning the smoke wasn’t quite as thick and I was able to capture a very colorful sunrise with my iPhone.  The sun was actually a red ball, but its hard to capture that with an iPhone.

Innocence of Admiration


“There is an innocence in admiration; it is found in those to whom it has never yet occurred that they, too, might be admired some day.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

You guessed it!  The Gerber Daisy represents innocence in the Victorian language of flowers.  To see this flower in color, visit my blog at Robyn Graham Photography. I would love to hear which you prefer – color or black and white.  Do you find the Gerber Daisy worthy of admiration in the absence of color?

Have a fabulous weekend!
