Photo Challenge: Basically two colors

Here is my entry for Cee’s fun foto challenge! Thanks for hosting this interesting photo topic.

Finding pictures with just 2 colors was harder than expected. But in scrolling through and identifying those pics, I can see how vivid the content turns out when there’s less colors vying for attention. I’m definitely going to stay mindful to this when taking pictures from now on.

Flower of the Day: March 25, 2019.

These bright flowers remind me of crinkled tissue paper.

My picture here does not show the extent of their graceful blooms. I wish I took the picture from a distance to show how they look like they’re floating against the blue sky. But taking flower pictures with kids is major distraction: my attention is split telling the kids to stop ninja chopping each other and to stay on the sidewalk.

But I did notice that its stems and unbloomed buds had fuzz all along it, as well as lots of leaves. I wonder if those factors give the thin stems its stability.

Something to google…first I need to learn what kind of flower this is. If you know, please share.  🙂

Hope everyone has a great start to a new week!

Photo Challenge: An Unusual Perspective / Megalodon shark.

Please beware: the shark image below is scary!!

A Megalodon shark hanging in the San Diego Natural History Museum lobby. Largest extinct type of shark to have existed even before dinosaurs.

Kids were terrified (me a little startled) to look directly at this shark’s enormous face with its sharp teeth and menacing stare. Although they avoided looking at it, they insisted that I take a picture of it. Every time they were in line of vision with the shark, I had to cover their eyes or they accused me of being a mean mom.

While I was writing this post, kids saw a glimpse of this shark and immediately they cried.
