A Past-due Purple Post

via Daily Prompt: Purple

Violets (I think) in my backyard after a morning shower…

A continuation of an earlier post. Still exploring the limits of my iPhone using the camera+ app for macro lens simulation with no special attachment. Focusing precisely still a challenge with the smallish SE screen, but not bad for just a phone, I think.

Since it is a writing prompt

Roses are red. These Violets aren’t blue. Here they are anyway, first one, then two 😉

  1. Nice picture but honestly? I assume you depend on me somewhat for that…the content was dull. Want to read more about you and your thought provoking words. XOXO

  2. Dear Prof. Ward,

    Your photos are lovely. I guess ‘violets are blue’ fit in the verse better than ‘violets are purple.’ Of course Roger Miller rhymed the line with “So’s maple surple.” Aside from the silliness I was directed to your page and wonderful pictures by one of my followers since my blog site is entitled “Addicted to Purple.” rochellewisoff.com

  3. Roses are red,
    Some are ugly black,
    These flowers are purple,
    What am I writing here
    Like a silly turtle?

    Very nice photos, especially considering the type of device, although mistaking with DSLR would be a bit too much of flattery. What it makes even better and complete, the captured water drops with, on the first bigger image. A nice moment to capture.
