A Backyard Find
The Bird of Paradise plants and the Daylillies seem to have a symbiotic relationship along the back wall of the backyard.

Images From My Yard
Another image found in my backyard. This Bird of Paradise plant is one of three in my yard and it stands close to twenty feet tall. I really dig the color, shapes and lines created by the leaves.
One of the photographic exercises I task myself with from time to time is to find objects in my own backyard to make images from. This is the roofline of my next door neighbor’s house, as seen from my backyard. I like the diagonal lines created by the vents, the wood trim and the roof tiles, as well as the recurring pattern of the tiles, and how it all plays against the deep, blue sky.
When I first started post processing this I was thinking “Italian Flag”, and while it has all the right colors, they were not proportioned right. Then as I looked at the image, more and more, it hit me, “angry bird!”.
