A few posts ago I introduced you to the lone crocus that had already emerged in my yard. It's not alone any more! When I went out to get a closer look at my early spring blooms, I couldn't help seeing them as people! Crocuses are just so perky, they looked active.
If you were just flipping through a stack of my photos and you came upon these, would they spark your imagination? Would you instinctively know how they sparked mine? I don't think you could read my mind.
You don't need my story, especially if these pictures are a visual metaphor for you. But if these are "just a pretty/dull sequence" of floral photos to you, maybe I can tweak the way you see them with a few lines of text. Ready to see if you see what I see?
TOP: I see these as A trio of vocalists with their backup singers. The Supremes backed by a Gospel choir. The Andrews Sisters accompanied by USO singers. The "3 Tenors" with an operatic choir. Carol, Marsha, and Jan Brady entertaining the geriatric crowd, backed by Alice, Mike Brady, and the boys. Mama Mia's 3 aging divas performing while the village folk all chime in. Can you see it? They're swaying; harmonizing at a climactic part of the song...
RIGHT: The Featured Trio. Crooners. Soulfully singing their hearts out. Blending their voices. Howling at the moon.
BOTTOM: The chorus. Rock concert audience. Partiers: "Happy Birthday to You...". Revelers: "To auld acquaintance be forgot.." The Osmonds. Crowding around, up on tiptoe, trying to see, singing out to be heard, mouths wide open, uvulas quavering, holding that last note...
Isn't it fun personifying flowers? Here's one more:
BUDDING DAFFODILS ON PARADE
"They're on the way..."
"WHY WOULD I DO THIS?"
It's just another way to make your scrapbooks, digital storybooks, garden journals, vacation photojournals, greeting cards, calendars, coasters, etc. FUN. Gardeners take pride in their gardens; homeowners take pride in their property; nature photographers delight in the details of their subjects. Sometimes the photos evoke a reaction that has us personifying nature--for instance, describing plants like people. SO USE THAT!
