Two plants of Mountain Pasqueflower (Pulsatilla montana (Hoppe) Rchb.) at Piani di Barra, an ancient Ostrogothic settlement on Monte Barro, at Lake Como. The first one, really tiny, had just begun to bloom.

I love the second one a lot (the first shot is also nice). The Monte Barro info is also very interesting, thanks for sharing.

As I seem to have given up photographing anything in favour of watching dance videos of fast, floating young women (must be the bounce in the shoes), here's a shot from a year or two ago. It probably has nothing at all to do with shoes, but you never can tell.

I don't know about shoes, but it does have that old Rob C magic.

Oh, if oldies are allowed, here's one with everything wrong from capture to processing and whatnot. But it is crackin' good street, even if I say so myself, since it lacks a street but has a railroad in it.

And there is a young woman in it, possibly listening to music. Before you'll know it, she'll be floating too. Notice particularly, Rob, her interest in older men...

That interest on older men. Yes, it must be painful for older men. But hey, not for experienced older men. They've been there before. Sadly.

Not street, but excellent road. Railroad.

:-)

P.S.

I'd been worrying a bit about you; wondered if you'd picked up my own malaise too.

Thank you, Eric, but you touch upon the problem: the magic, I think she's flown. At least, she doesn't call me to arms anymore. I blame house viewers, estate agents and plumbers. Mine (plumber) did show on Tuesday, fitted the tank, but Tuesday night I discovered a leak at the connection between hot water outlet and the pipe to the various taps. So another visit whenever I can get him, and prior to that, all the blasted sacrificial sheets down on the carpets again. But at least a nice hot shower enjoyed!

My scream against Brexit and the machinations behind the/our uncharacteristically mute Boris Trump.

The acutely focussed observer will notice the newly silent one has had a change of image, eschewing the madcap hairstyle for the English version of the crew, in his quiet makeover to stand as a respectable, certainly sober representative-of-the-mainstream prime ministerial candidate since the collapse of the incumbent fair maid who has just traded her soul for a chimera. Proud days, ye Brits!

I think a photo of wild turkeys is an appropriate response to Rob's post.  :D  So here's one, taken today on my first park walk of 2019 (after a thoroughly dreary winter that left me uninterested in traipsing through slush & mud). This is about as close as I've ever been to these park residents without them freaking out. They had their eyes on me for sure, but didn't seem much bothered by the company. Note the iridescence of their breast feathers and the near-electric reds & blues of their heads & necks. Taken with Miyazaki-san's MS Optical 73mm f/1.5 lens at ~f/2.8 (no aperture detents). [Edit: I've added a crop from an alternate pic.]

Dave, iridescent breasts have always been things I've found totally fascinating - with or without feathers. I suppose a nice, clean boa would help in some cases, in the sense that less can sometimes be more.

The things that come to mind as I stand, straddling the electric heater in vain attempt to rediscover central heating as she used to be. It's that tease-time of year where the sun makes one sweat but the shade causes shivers. The wind, however, is freezing, sunshine or otherwise. That said, Chuck Berry coming over the Internet does as much for the central heating quest as the radiator.

Anyway, they tell me the coming day or next will bring rain, at which time I may venture out again with the camera. i've been telling myself pretty much that all winter through.

Rob, I just saw an episode of "Rail away" on Palma and thought they have a bloody cool old train there! Considering there is always something happening at even a minor trainstation like in my town, I figure you owe us some bloody cool "road" photography.

Energy, Oscar... it's a long way to go. Glasgow's Transport Museum provided a great tram interior for a hairdressing (I think) shoot that I did. I shudder to think of all the stuff I sold to clients or destroyed back in '81 when we were leaving. Burning bridges had nothing on this. It all went, including my Vogues. I guess I really did want a new life rather badly.

Something about the 20s and 30s that can't be beaten by modernity; it was a time and a sense of classic design. Oh to have been a photographer then, knowing how much was about to be lost.

Your remarks remind me of the film Midnight in Paris.
