Sunday Post: Attraction

Prickly Pear Cactus

It’s always fun to respond to Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post. Click on this link to see the many creative responses to his challenge to represent the idea of attraction.

We are attracted to many things. Google quotes about attraction and you will find the overwhelming majority refer to that mysterious magnetic relationship between two people. But aren’t we also attracted to our child’s giggle, our grandmother’s biscuits, our best friend’s laugh, our dog’s antics? What about the brilliant sunset or the crash of ocean waves or the piece of rich dark chocolate?

I am, of course, attracted to certain people, but nature captures my attention as well. I am attracted to flowers, especially yellow flowers, and I was rewarded with these beauties which I found today at the Desert Botanical Gardens, which is a Tourist Attraction.

    • I have a love-hate relationship with cactus, and not necessarily because they can be quite painful. Until very recently I have been unable to get a decent image (but that is changing). Their flowers can be incredibly beautiful.

      The prickly pear cactus provides the pulp for some delicious jellies.

  1. All the flowers are beautiful – as are the photos. My favorite is on the bottom. Can you identify the flowers?

  2. Welcome! Thank you for subscribing to follow my blog. I hope you are encouraged, inspired and enjoy the photos I take of life’s events as seen through the lens of my camera.
    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

I'd love to hear what you think.
