POTD: Latent Potential #2

POTD: Latent Potential #2Latent Potential #2 Bozeman, Montana 2013

Back in December I posted a photo called Latent Potential. I called it that because the subject was seed pods, which contain the possibility of new growth. I thought at the time that photos of various dried or drying plants gone to seed would also make a good series of images. Other than collecting some additional plants to photograph, I only just got around to actually photographing any yesterday. So you might say the series itself has had a lot of latent potential the last few months.

I don’t know what kind of flowers these puff-balls are from. Some relative of the common dandelion with very long stems I suppose. I do know these are very tough subjects to work with–they keep wanting to go about their business of dispersing their seeds at inopportune times while I’m trying to collect or photograph them.

  1. Very beautiful photo!
    I appreciate all that you went through to get the photo, and I appreciate all the plant went through to try to reproduce. Its progeny will probably show up in many unexpected places, thanks to you.

    1. Thanks Carol. I just hipe one of the unexpected places those progeny show up wasn’t inside my studio–that would suggest I’ve been very delinquent with my cleaning and dusting!
