― Dave Cullen, Columbine
How sad a world that this word means more than just the name of a beautiful flower
I know what you mean and appreciate your dark in this photo! There is also light too to show the beauty of the flower!

Powerful shot! Never even knew what a Columbine flower looked like, but it certainly made me remember that tragic day, and also made me think of all the other senseless shootings that have followed...

Indeed! But I am glad a flower was named in their honour

thank you so much for the lovely comments and favs - I am trying to catch up with commenting and posting - ahaha not doing real well with either - keep getting extracted - ooops I mean distracted - oh dear LOL
January 12th, 2015  
@annied That's okay Annie... just don't sleep tonight and you will be all caught up by morning ;-)
OR have a glass of wine and don't bother about catching up :D
January 12th, 2015  
@bella_ss or don't sleep have lots of wine and then laugh at the comments you wrote the next morning hahahahaha
January 12th, 2015  
@bella_ss I mean the comments I wrote - oh I need something LOL
January 12th, 2015  
@annied hahaha, knew what you meant... I like that one even better... we would all get some laughs!!

Excellent low key image sad to be reminded of the event in Colorado.
January 12th, 2015  
got extracted too! I fortunately proofread my review of an uninterruptible power supply. I was mentioning that I previously had the same brand for about ten years before it bit the dust, but my actual text was before I bit the dust, so glad I caught it. :)

It is very sad Annie but we musn't allow treasured things to be tainted by unrelated events, so I like this image for its own sake.
January 12th, 2015  
Fav and love the dark tones with the use of light. And we should all remember and salute the good that comes out of evil events or we fall victim to despair.
January 12th, 2015  
mysteriously beautiful.
January 12th, 2015
