Tag Archives: black eyed Susan vine

What a difference a week makes! Even though today is a bit chillier than I’d like, the sky is blue and the sun is shining bright. Much better than last saturday, where we were getting soaked at an art fair!

As much as I like displaying my work and chatting it up with the public, I’d much rather be out shooting, and my new macro lens is becoming a familiar friend.

“Runaround Sue” (Black-eyed Susan Vine ‘Sunny Lemon Star’) Nikon D300, 105mm macro, F/10, 1/400s, -1.0EV, ISO 400

With photos like this, how can I resist?

Black Eyed Susan Vine neverdisappoints!

“Sunny Lemon Star” (Thunbergia alata ‘Sunny Lemon Star’, aka Yellow Black Eyed Susan Vine) Nikon D300, 65mm, F/4, 1/320s, -0.7EV, ISO 400

I was up and out early this morning because our weather pattern has been so very unpredictable. Just in the time I’ve been up, we’ve experienced clouds, rain, sun, wind, more rain, then blue skies and more sun! Welcome to New England weather! 🙂

“Rise & Shine” (Thunbergia alata ‘Sunny Lemon Star’, aka Yellow Black Eyed Susan Vine) Nikon D300, 70mm, F/2.8, 1/640s, ISO 400

Black-eyed Susan Vine is one of my favorite annuals to have around. They make great topiaries, grow quickly, bloom all season long and are virtually maintenance free! What could be better than that?

“Primary Colors” (Thunbergia alata ‘Sunny Lemon Star’, aka Yellow Black Eyed Susan Vine) Nikon D300, 90mm (70mm w/1.4x teleconverter), F/6.3, 1/50s, -1.0EV, ISO 1000

 
I’m begining to think it’s actually true – all I ever really needed to know in life, I learned in kindergarten!

Red, yellow and blue…so simple yet sooooo right.

Hands down, this photograph would not be nearly as interesting without the pop of those supporting background colors. Lucky break!

Sigh.

Makes me wanna sit cross-legged on the floor with my stash of Crayolas and color outside the lines… 😀
