Illustration Friday: Seed -

"Seed, Plotting 'Neath a Full Moon at Midnight"
digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
I was documenting the flowering of a pair of dandelions a few weeks ago and found this photo of the full head of seed irresistible. Since it fits the theme, seed, at Illustration Friday this week my work seems to be done! Hmm, a little couch time is sounding pretty good right now ... could be I'm going to seed as well? Later dudes and dudettes! :)

What, no glass of scotch waiting for you? :))
This is a beautiful piece, Mick! I wonder why people hate dandelions so much. I guess they do pretty much take over lawns if given half a chance.

neat work on this week's theme...I remember these when I was a child...we would collect them and blow the seeds all over the place...

great work!

Thanks so much. Would I ruin it if I admitted that I was just playing around? Well, in the beginning anyway. :)

I actually went straight to bed after finishing this up, Sarah. Downtime, I loved it.

studio lolo:
LMAO @ "what? no glass of scotch?". Pack a bottle and head over to my place, we'll both have a belt!

Thanks! :D

I remember doing the same thing as a boy. It was like blowing out birthday candles, to see who could blast all the seed puffs away in one breath. :D

Oh, this is in some way so pure and delicate, beautiful.

I think this is very sensitive and beautiful. I can find some erotical aspects in the picture too. Or maybe I'm just odd. I like this much, this is great!

It's funny, I mentioned in another comment (to Elegia, I think) that I was going to send you the documentation of this dandelion from pretty yellow flower through to the white puffy seeds seen here. So you could make one of your gorgeous, short films. I was even going to send an mp3 of my own music for it too. Sadly, I waited too long and there's only two photo's. Oh well.

Let me see, we have one delicate, one sensitive and two beautifuls; thanks to both you and Susu for those. You know, I saw the erotic components of this as well. I suppose we'll both have to be considered odd. :)

This is genius and beautiful. I've been tired of writing in English (maybe cause that is the only language I hear and speak daily), but I wanted to write at least this. :))

Hope you could speak Finnish!
