Vacant Lot Across The Street
Directly across the street from our home are two vacant lots.
We've been really surprised that with the housing boom of the past few years they've stayed vacant.
I've seen these flowers grow over there over the years and the other day after work I walked to the edge of the road with my camera and took this shot.
The ditch was full of water from a recent rain, so I couldn't get closer. I zoomed in on it as much as I could and made the shot.
I love the anti-shake technology these days. My favorite lens has it, and the evening I took this I was zoomed out to 200mm.
Anyway, I really liked the photo and the flower just looked amazingly beautiful to me.
It's a little over six feet tall, and there's a clump of them that grows together in one spot on one of the lots.
I looked this guy up, and it's a Canna Lily, a 'Yellow King Humbert' (Canna x generalis)
I have a couple of neat photos posted on my Least Significant Bits blog if y'all want to go check them out. One of them is a black and white photo that I'm really proud of.
