Splendor in the Grass

it gets no respect
ignored, walked over, stepped on
splendor in the grass


   I recently switched from medium-format and 35mm slides to digital, learning to use a six-color giclee printer with pigment ink. Morning walks around the Tulsa Bishop Tract Soccer Complex and on the adjoining bank of the Mingo Creek across from Hicks Park, with camera handy, produced a series of images. They show the little weed flowers that most everyone ignores, from about 1/8-inch diameter up to 1.5 inches.
