Lunchtime Photo

For the past week or so I’ve been playing around with long exposures of our orchid tree when the wind is blowing. I wanted to let the breeze paint a sort of abstract image, but I wasn’t especially taken with the results, even after letting the camera operate on autopilot for a while and getting a couple hundred shots. This is the best of the bunch, I think. You’ll have to decide for yourself if you like it.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
