Thistles on Guard

My iTunes: Soundtrack to Gods and Generals

I believe these are thistles of some type. They were taken, like other pictures recently near the abandoned building in earlier posts. I am also attaching the color version of the black and white picture the other day. This will show the wildflowers a little better that were near the building.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Really nice composition of the Thistles. They look like sentenials reaching towards the sky.
I still prefer the b&w of the old building. It gives the shot more of a gritty abandoned feel.
Have a great weekend.

Beautiful! I love to take pictures of the thistles! And I love the color shot of the building...I think I see blue chicory wild flowers...they are my favorite!

These are wonderful! I love the top shot...the colors are coming off my screen!

Farmers see these thistles and think of evil.

Good thing we can take their picture without thinking that.

Wow, I like both of these. The color saturation of the thistle photo up top looks like slide film. I intentionally try to get this look sometimes with photoshop when I've taken a photo where I'd loved to have been using Kodachrome.
