starry starry night . . .

DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 28 May 2011 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

As I was developing this photo of weed-flowers that carpeted a patch of lawn behind my house, I began seeing their resemblance to stars and humming Don McLean's popular song, "Starry Starry Night." :-)

Cool effect - and if you're going to put a song in my head, at least it's one that I like!

It's a lovely photo but I always found the song disturbing, van Gogh was a very sick man.
