ActiveRain Wallpaper: Nandina domestica 'firepower'

 

Dick Greenberg is sponsoring a November contest titled AR Contest - Show us Your Wallpaper as an effort to encourage members of ActiveRain to share their personal selection of wallpaper for one of their devices or sites. He is hoping to find some good stories.

When I was young, photography was one of my hobbies and those were the days of long hours in the darkroom developing black and white photographs. We purchased government surplus film and supplies and rolled our own canisters of 35 mm film.

As I approached my time to retire from real estate, Dolores suggested that I return to photography as a hobby that would keep me busy during our retirement years. She did not want me interfering with her golf games or her time for traveling or playing cards with her friends.

Before getting a new camera, my daily habit was to take a morning walk through our home community, Kentlands in Gaithersburg, Maryland. When I began to carry a camera, some of the most available subjects were the flowers and plants that I passed during my walks which quickly became photowalks. 

We have also spent more time visiting public gardens such as Longwood Gardens and Brookside Gardens. After taking over 100,000 photographs of flowers and plants, that has become my niche in photography.

I enjoy the changing colors of the season and selected this photograph of Nandina leaves for the cover of my ActiveRain site. If you wish to see more of my photographs, follow my Facebook timeline or visit my Facebook photo albums. I also post photographs on Pinterest and Flickr.
