Another View

I found this twisted red hibiscus flower, crinkled on the edges, it never fully developed. I took another view of it and it looked totally different. see below.

If you have 2 minutes view my post from last year

Those flowers are so pretty! We have two on our deck but they are orange. I like your post from last year too. You really have a good eye to capture these cool shots! Have a fun filled weekend!

Twisted it may be but still very lovely.

Yes I saw your blog yesterday, and I love the new layout. Your blog gets better every day.

I had two minutes so I read your old post, too. You're so right, things do look different depending on the angle...

From my point of view this hibiscus really is twisted, yet interesting and no matter of the perspective the color of this flower remains beautiful.
I read your post from the last year. That is a touching story. Indeed, sometimes, all it takes is to look at thing from another point of view.
By the way, there is no any perspective of view that I can accept a new follower on my blog because of the erotic content of his/her blog. I was shocked when I noticed it yesterday. There is no any sense in that because it is obvious that my blog doesn't have anything to do with such contents. I tried as much as I could to remove this follower from my follower list but I simply couldn’t find the way.:-( I would be thankful if you happen to know how to do that. Thank you in advance and have a wonderful weekend!:-)

Love the different flower views, and I think you've changed your template, as well. It's reversed. Everything it changed today. That's because of your old post in July, which I just read. It was just before we met. Wow!! You are like me, I know some of the grocery store cashier's life story. I worry about them when they don't show up for work or are looking sad. And I ask them why are they looking sad. Frankly, I don't think a man would EVER do that. Your story is so sweet and touching. BUT, we do the best we can, try to help people the most we can, and try not to think about all the unfair comparisons in the world. Everyone has things in a defferent degree, life isn't fair, that's it. It's only for a little while. I didn't know what that word meant, now I do, cool, I've learned something good!

Isn't "Finding Another View" Phun. ;^0 Sorry I just couldn't resist. I really like your take on the two different angles though. Nice shots.

Karen said...

I love hibiscus, and your images are beautiful. I especially like the first one. The color is so rich, and the angle really emphasizes it's twisted shape.

Sunny said...

It's still a beautiful flower :)
Hope you have a lovely weekend.

I did take the time to read your previous post. It brought tears to my eyes. I've found myself becoming much more aware of what's going on in the lives of people around me. People that I don't know but sense a need in their lives. You've made me think, once again, about how fortunate I am.

Best,
Bonnie

My mom loves hibiscus. I believe it is in the mallow family. They grow wild here as well and those that do are quite lovely. WE don't have any in our yard though. Great color!

Krista said...

It is so beautiful. I love photographing "irregular" subjects like this one. it make me feel better and not like such an oddball, myself. :o)

I'm glad you took another look and a different perspective ...

SquirrelQueen said...

It may be twisted but it is still very beautiful. I like the imperfections in flowers, it gives them character.

MedaM said...

Dear Sandra thanks to your instructions I managed to delete unwanted follower. Thank you very, very much.:-))
Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

I do love the Hibiscus. They come in the most amazing colors.

Carole said...

The flowers are beautiful....not perfect but neither are any of us... great analogy. I really like last year's post as well. A lot to think about for sure.

Hi, I read your other post ---making us realize that sometimes our thoughts about people and things are WAY off-base... We don't always know all of the details --but we certainly jump to conclusions, don't we??? Interesting post...

The little flowers look like someone has taken a curling iron to them... ha .. They really are pretty.
Hugs,
Betsy
