Every now and then I ask you on my Facebook page and in my newsletter for you to suggest one word to me, and then I create a blog post about my interpretation of that word just for you. It makes sense that each blog post will be a combination of photographs I've taken and my thoughts/interpretation on the subject.
I've decided to call this series of blog posts "One Word". And I'll do these as long as you keep giving me your one word. I still have a few more words on my list, but I'll be photographing more as the weather gets warmer. Which means I'll need more words! You really help get me motivated to go out and photograph!

One Word — Whimsical
Glowing Pink Daisy
This image had sat on my hard drive for almost three years until I found it last week. It had gone unedited all this time. While I don't like to keep every image I photograph, I sometimes get lazy and don't delete the ones that weren't selected to be edited the first time around. In this case, I'm glad it was still there!
Daisies have a playful, whimsical quality about them. They are never taken seriously. (In other words, you don't see them at funerals.) When I think of daisies, I think of carefree, happy, playful, and...whimsical!
Thanks Jule, for the word "whimsical"!
What's your word?
I'd love if you'd add your word in a comment below! (Or email me or message me through Facebook.) I'll choose from my photo archives or create a new artistic photograph just for you, based on my interpretation of the word you suggest. My narrative might be long or short. :) But it will be just for you!
For you photographers out there, here's the photo information:
Nikon D700; Lensbaby Composer Pro with Soft Focus Optic; lighting - shade; processed in Lightroom with various personal adjustments plus a preset from 2 Lil Owls.
Glowing Pink Daisy can be yours! Available in a variety of sizes and formats (prints or gallery wrapped canvases).
