There is nothing in this photo that suggests its location. Its nature is also ambiguous. I think it could be some creature on the sea floor. It is, in fact, a dahlia from Endless Summer Flower Farm in Maine. I haven't had time to shoot a thing locally since I got back and I really need to get out on the street.
Late post, too. We were out last night taking my granddaughter to a screening of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 2, at the symphony hall with the orchestra playing the score. The kid loved it. Mrs. C and I hated it. It seemed, by turns, incoherent, obvious and tedious. Even the special effects weren't that great. Sort of a popular, contemporary Götterdämmerung that cops out with a happy ending. Then we had to get up at 6 to take Ellie to a dance recital. Okay, I'm an old grouch.
