Interesting curly leaf?
Ray: Fern frond doing its "thinking of waking up now" pantomime.

You have green butter in Bangkok. Maybe if you use it sooner when it is still yellow ...

Great picture.
Ray: Green butter, from the milk of the water buffalo when it is eating lush new-growth grass. Thai prefer their butter green, as it compliments the rotted-landcrab flavoured ice-cream served for dessert at this time of year.

Since this is a meditation, Ray, I could sit here as a painter and start making a color palette of all the greens I see. If you made a thin border of each color, adding on to the one you already have, they'd probably run off the page. smile

It doesn't matter what your subject is, you are the macro master (one of them)!
Ray: Monochrome in green! Thanks, Ginnie.
After the weeks i've had this is perfect, a likey for me Ray.
Ray: Glad you like it, Scarlet.

Beautiful composition of these soothing greens. (:o)
Ray: I like the colours, for their soothing influence, Ros, but the spiral reminds me that I haven't opened a soothing bottle of dry red in ages. [grin]
I am with Louis here. A rolled piece of butter was my first impression. Where is the knife?
Great capture Ray!
Ray: Thai don't use table knives, Richard...they grow their "pinky" fingernail really long, and then use that to curl the butter...that is why it is green! [grin]

Great idea and composition. Could use a bit more DOF, but I like it as is.
Ray: DOF???

Dry Old Fungus.

Drooping Orange Flowers.

Day Old Fish.

Dags Of Fleece.

Yeh...you could be right...I'll see if my local camera shop has some in stock!

And...thank you for the suggestion, Martin.
intresting! What a green!
Ray: Fresh young fern fronds are a spectacular colour, Kavita. Thanks for your kind comment.

Such a vivid colour Ray.
Ray: Ha Ha! No need to boost the palette with the PP tool for this one, Bernie.
Nice composition.
Ray: Thanks Chichi

This is an outstanding picture, these are the ones I like very much, Ray, where did you find it, yard or in the house??
BTW can I ship you some crates of DOF, I have some to share with you.....Martn thought you needed some....grin
Ray: Found this one in a pot in front of an aprtment building where the Boy goes for Taekwondo school.
Thanks for the kind offer re DOF. For the moment I have decided to struggle on with the little I have in my kit, but if I run low....

IT's a rather luscious fern isn't it? How delightful, fresh and springlike too.
Ray: Luscious is a great descriptive word for young fern fronds, Ellie.
Certainly a best of ! Bravo and a likey !
Ray: You are very generous, Zebigleb.
