Those closeups of the beautiful flowers have stood the test of time... amazing that you took those pictures back in 1979. I wonder who lives there now, and if the garden is still as lovely?
I've said it before but your close ups are like lovely paintings. Any of those could grace a wall.
Hadn't thought about it but you are right. It does seem actors go to NY then get a series that is filmed in Ca. I see them mention that very fact on talk shows.What ever works.
you can always see your "artist" even in the photo's you took back then! But you have always taken great photo's of flowers and birds and of course your cactus garden...
great post Naomi... xoxoxoxox
Flowers make me swoon. They really do perk up life. And now we can crop close in on our flower photos in Adobe photo shop.
And guess what? I think of you when I'm in the flower section of the grocery shop!
I forgot to change the link to Liam's birthday photos to public but just did so here it is: https://www.facebook.com/colleen.redman.56/media_set?set=a.10152264846031642.1073741862.713101641&type=1 There is one of him having a meltdown!
What a wonderful post, dear Naomi!
I love always seeing your macro pictures of flowers! Ron Rifkin's garden is really incredibly stunning! I agree with you, to got in close on plants and flowers we can see all the details like these amazing little fuzzy hairs of the flowers.
Love the pictures and I remember well the post you did on your 75th Birthday in 2006.
I am looking forward to see more of your gorgeous, stunning pictures of flowers and plants!
Wishing you a lovely weekend!
So sorry on that link, Naomi. Try this one: https://www.facebook.com/colleen.redman.56/media_set?set=a.10152264846031642.1073741862.713101641&type=3
If this one doesn't work I'm lost on how to make the album public, which you're supposed to be able to do.
I hope you know how much I love your flower posts!! You have an artist's eye for the right angle. I see snapdragons, asters, and the last one is foxglove, one of my favorites.
I am sorry I have not been able to call. I will have heart surgery in the middle of Nov. and maybe when I recover from that, I will not be so short of breath and able to talk more.
I hope you are feeling better!!
Flowers everywhere thank you.
Beautiful! I especially like the white flower, it reminds me of wrinkled skin, or the wrinkles in handmade Paper. I recognize Ron! I don't think I ever saw Pictures of him when he was young, but I've seen him in so many shows. He's an awesome actor!
Just so you know, you have some strange graphics that at are saying something about "Imageshack" in them, with just blank black boxes. It may just be my computer but I'm not sure.
I love all your close up shots of the flowers. It's hard to think of them as being 35 years old as they look timeless.
I'm not a great fan of the phone, but still I do know it's a wonderful way for loved ones to stay connected. Even if my mother sometimes takes that "Connection" a bit too far!
Such gorgeous flowers and your friends are like gorgeous flowers, too.
So nice that you can keep in touch on the phone.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful photographs.
I can't believe those pictures are still so beautiful! Amazing.
What beautiful flowers, Naomi. You do have an eye. I've always loved the tight shots on the flowers -- they reveal so very much.
I remember Ron Rifkin -- haven't see him do anything in quite some time but always found him to be a most credible and convincing actor, one who "takes you along." Sounds like he and Iva are also very good friends.
I've always liked Ron Rifkin as an actor...he always has seemed like a very genuine person to me.
I liked Lee Grant, too...she was quite unique...in her own special way.
Love your flowers pics. I have a Pentax (as well as Canon digital) - but the Pentax were great cameras. My ex swore by them and he was a very good photographer...much better than I am! I'm a "point and shoot"....I'm still referring to taking photos! :)
I hope you're feeling fine, Naomi and are taking good care of yourself. Hugs from Down Under. :)
Stunning photos of those beautiful flowers an I love seeing the photos of your friends over the years; how gracefully they have aged. Could be something to do with living a creative life.
