DP136-2013 Posted May 16; processed ditto
I thought I'd follow up yesterday's shot of a sublime experience (hand feeding wild birds) with something on the ridiculous side. This is the sculpture representing the sense of taste in the Five Senses portion of the Lena Meijer Children's Garden. I used the eyeball from this garden as my opening shot when I joined the DailyPhotos community. This outrageous over-sized tongue with its Clara Bow lips (or as Jean-Yves suggests, Mick Jagger lips) makes me laugh. I hope you at least get a chuckle from it.

I was very cheered yesterday by the overwhelming response to my shot of the titmouse feeding from my sister's hand. Thanks to all who took the time to comment. The shot shot to the number 2 spot in my Popular Photos ranking. I wish each of you could, someday, have the same thrill we enjoyed. At least now you know one place to come to in order to do just that. - arctangent's Photos
I'm hoping to use this gallery to challenge myself to learn something every day about seeing the world, photographing it, expressing myself through photos, and enjoying the works of other photographers. It will test my self-discipline. I won't even pretend that I'll take a picture every single day, but I will try to process one each day. Critiques are welcomed, and even encouraged. If you make a suggestion for altering one of my posts, to this or any other gallery, and I can act on it (short of retaking the shot), I'll try to respond and post the altered versions in a new 'Take Your Pick' gallery here: http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Photography/Take-Your-Pick/27975689_qs5bJs
