Forest Park In Spring - Defeated Daffodils

Early spring flowers in Forest Park after rain. They look like they are dejected, or sad, or possibly bowing in obeisance to a greater blossom.

There is a black and white version of this photo
here. I like the color just a bit better but I could go either way.

Thursday Arch Series (with a new idea!) and a new Arch photo on Gateway. And it's a travel day, too.

Nope color is the way to go on this one I think. Daffodils are pretty spunky. Bet they straightened right up when the sun came otu.. Love the background of this photo too.

Maybe they were just napping? They do have a way of rising and falling, they're definitely sun worshippers.

Have a good trip! You'll only see daffs in the shade in Paris, the others have already waned and dried. In Versailles, however... ;-)

Or bowing in awe of a great photographer? :<) But they should have stood straight up!
