While photographing the Mission San Francisco De Asis at Rancho De Taos, consumed with the magnificence and power of the structure, I paused to catch my breath; often caught up in the excitement of the moment, one forgets to breathe. I turned and there was this brilliant red hollyhock.  Here was this flower appearing to grow next to the bare shoulder and neck of a woman, and suddenly the structure was soft and quite feminine.

Region's iPhone Photo of The Day (iPPOD) is still going srtong and will continue through November 11th 2012. It was to be a one year project, but I am getting such fine response to it I may continue beyond that point.

You can see the iPPOD on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn or on the Projects page on this site. Twitter Follow me on Twitter FaceBook LinkedIn Profile LinkedIn
