Hello friends of TL.

Its been a long day at work today. I am looking forward for the weekend. My son just got his driving license, so I got him to send me to work - only for a couple of days. Today, he was helping out his aunt - sending my niece to school. I handed over my car, so my husband had to send me to work instead. So my dearest son had to pick me up after work. Well...

About an hour before I got to get off work, dearest son called - letting me know that he can't start the car. Flat battery. Why? Upon returning home after sending off his cousin early that morning, he forgot to switch off the front lights - until it was time to pick me up.Hmmmmm

Today's just yesterday's tomorrow
I'm still here, warped & twisted

I shot this while waiting for my husband to pick me up. The stamen of this particular flower is curled up or slightly twisted? Hope it fits the theme.

Updated : it is actually the bark of the tree in the background which looks almost like a rock.
Thanks Vaibhav, Vandana, Teresat, Dot & Kevin

Hi Sharina,

really enjoyed looking at this image. Love the colors contrast.


Salamat Malam, Sharina.
I bet you used the hair curly set to get this twisted, right ? haha
Wonder how your son got his driving license as he dont know to switch off the light, after using.!?!
Maybe better to give him a bike, instead of your CarKeys, haha
I'm sure you forgive him, Sharina. Afterall he is not your husband, right ?
Hang a note on the keys "Switch off the lights and stopp the engine, close the doors and dont loose the keyes"
Best wishes from Jan

Hello Sharina!
Very beautiful flower, I think it would had been better if the focus was on the stamen, but it is great like this too!

Have a nice day!

Hello Sharina,
Beautiful shot and colors,just nice!
Well done.


Hello Sharina,

Excellent macro shot of this wonderful yellow flower! It's a great contribution for the theme!
Congratualtions and TFS,

on sunday

Hi Sharina,

That tree bark really works wonderful as a BG and those stamen fit the theme perfectly, of course the bright sunny yellow makes it very attractive.
Sons and drivers licenses - uhm, be careful with handing over your car. My son managed to get his first speeding ticket when using my car, well he learned his lesson and now is the responsable dad of that girl you saw in the picture you visited....


A nice addition to the theme! Maybe a bit more focus on the twist itself would've been even better, but nice job, nevertheless! :)
