This morning I ran into my neighbor on my way home from drawing outdoors.
"I saw one of your drawings online," he said. A picture I drew was on a local website awhile ago.
"Oh yeah? I drew something this morning. What to see?" I pulled out this drawing to show him.
"Uh hum," he said, looking at the sheet of paper. "What kind of flower is that?"
"I'm not sure," I said. "It's dead. Those are dried up leaves and a dried up stalk, and those little round things...it's all dried up. I don't know what the flowers looked like."
"Uh hum," said my neighbor, "I went on vacation and took photos of live flowers. They're beautiful. I put them in a slideshow on Flickr."
I gave him my email so he could send me a link to the show.
update: I checked out his photos, and they are very nice.
