Stamina of Flowers


stamina 2m

The stamina of flowers,

So delicate in the light,

Enduring the wind’s urgent whispers.

      Glad you enjoyed this one George. Did you like the wordplay ? Stamina is the plural for stamen. 😀

      • You ARE kidding me. Stamina cannot be the plural. I’ll be back to find you out… 😉

        The plural for stamen, either stamens or stamina . From the Latin: the warp in an upright loom, from stāre to stand. Don’t you love those Latin roots ( Bonus wordplay). 😀

  2. Oh, Joseph, the processing in the top two and the last one is gorgeous. I really really like them.
    And thanks for the etymology lesson. 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed the post. If you look closely you will see that the last one shares a texture used in the Flying post, the embossed glyphs.

      Thanks. Actually, had to check the translation. 🙂 My Latin is even worse now than it was in my youth. 😀

      • I know… how these things slip when we don;t use them. I try to persuade my students to look up the roots of anatomical names, it just makes things easier if you know the shape reflects the meaning of the Latin word. But I enjoyed your pun. Thanks. Tony

        I won’t repeat one of the few Latin quotations I remember from my early school daze. 😀

      Thanks very much. I’ve been experimenting with different combinations of layers & effects. The translucent glow became very pronounced with this blend.

  6. These are lovely. You can almost feel how soft they are…like velveteen. Each one a beautiful little masterpiece.

      Thanks very much. I am sometimes surprised on the full range of results from the textured layers. There is a random element, that can take the process in unexpected directions or exceed the expected outcome. 🙂
