Mar 182012

This is the eleventh week of our 365 Photo Challenge.

Not a varied week subject-wise, but my favorite picture this year so far is included in this batch. I’d been playing with the white balance settings on my camera and saw a dandelion gone to seed in the grass. I decided to take a blind shot (not looking through the view finder or at the display) and took a few shots of it. I’d forgotten to change the white balance which was radically different now that I was in a shady location, so I was kinda bummed to find several nearly black images when I downloaded my camera.

Luckily, I was able to boost the exposure in iPhoto and played around a bit with the saturation levels as well and the result was the dandelion below. Serendipity plays a HUGE role sometimes. Being in the right place at the right time, having the lighting just right, being in the right mood yourself even — all will affect what you see and capture. So go ahead… take those wild shots, experiment! You may just surprise yourself.

What you see below are links to my flickr set for the photos I’m posting for this challenge. Click on any photo below to go to flickr and then you can navigate through the set with the “Previous” and “Next” arrows at the top.
