Cosmos Buds

Sometimes it’s a thin line between green and yellow.


I saw Walt Disney’s animated movie Fantasia in 1956.  I was very young and did not like it at all.  It was boring and the thing with the mops and buckets went on forever.  I’ve never watched the movie since then but I have seen short clips here and there over the years.  It may be an altered memory but these next three photos bring the movie to mind for some reason, especially the third one.  Cripes, I can’t remember what I had for lunch but a plant can bring back memories from over sixty years ago.




This is the same cosmos as the first photo, just a slightly different angle and a little less darkening.  The slight change in angle seems to have made a considerable amount of difference in the background.


Thanks for taking the time to visit this blog.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Sigma 105mm macro lens.

  1. Loved ‘Fantasia,’ but I was an adult when I first saw it. The pairing of art to music is truly a work of art. ‘Allegro non Troppo’ is an Italian take on the same theme, more humorous and irreverent, but a classic, too.

    • Fantasia was and is lost on me because I do not have a single musical bone in my body. One of my favorite nonfiction authors is Oliver Sacks who wrote “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat”. He also wrote “Musicophilia” about mental disorders associated with how people hear and feel music. I just cannot understand how music can bring some people to tears from the sadness they hear in the notes or the overwhelming joy they hear. It must be pretty fantastic to be able to hear something that moves one that way. I guess the closest I can come to that is the joy is see in what I think is a superb painting or photo.
