I took this at Konza Prairie which is a tall grass research station here in Kansas this past Saturday so could qualify at a stretch for #Travel Thursday curated by +Laura Mitchum It's the dried version of the flowers of a Compass Plant which gets it's name from the fact that it's leaves generally are found in a north/south orientation. Hope you enjoy!
No theme picture for today at the moment so I have this instead. This is Gayfeather in the fall. When it is in full bloom it has purple flowers. The other name for this is Blazing Star. Hope you enjoy.
I don't have a theme photo today so thought I would share this. It is what our sunflowers look like now. They are past their prime but still interesting in their own way and now are in their prime for providing for the birds. The one in the front looks like it has already. Hope you enjoy.
With all the new themes I still don't have a photo to share for that. Thought I would share this and hope that someone could tell me what it is. It was shot in a field east of Topeka. I think it originally might have had some flowers but this was taken in the fall as it was starting to dry. Hope someone can help. Hope you enjoy and can help. Have a grea day.
I don't have anything on my computer at the moment for a theme today so thought I would share something kind of fun. Took this the first time we had a bit of snow. It's snow on the remnants of an Echinatia flower or "Cone" flower. Hope you enjoy.
For Rural Saturday curated by +Mario Cerroni is this bit of #Americana that I photographed a while back. It was past it's prime even then and I think it has deteriorated even more since then which is sad. These old Mail Pouch signs along the Pennsylvania turnpike are such pieces of history. I'll be driving along that way in about a week so I'll check out what state it's in now. Hope you enjoy the photo.
Morning everyone! This is for Sepia Saturday curated by +Renee Stewart Jackson . This is the old coaling tower in Thurmond, West Virginia that I saw this summer. Very interesting building with lots of character. Hope you enjoy this version of it. Hope you have a great day as well! We are only supposed to be at around 90 F today! We won't know what to do with ourselves with it that cool! :-)
This is in my Past Their Prime album. It's a shot of a branch of dried Sedum blooms sticking though the snow. I loved their coppery color against the sparkly snow. Still pretty even though past it's prime. I guess I am doing an un-official 365 as I can't seem to stop taking a photo a day. :-) I was hoping for a lovely sunset but as usual for us lately, it's cloudless and won't be very exciting. Ah well. Hope you enjoy the shot.
