Gardening Gone Wild is hosting their last photo contest for this year. I must say, I’ve learned a lot about photo composition by participating and had a lot of fun at the same time.
I was trying to capture the milkweed fuzz the other day, because it is so pretty especially when it is shining in the sun (be sure to catch those shots for my Wordless Wednesday posting), when I spotted this milkweed pod, just opened, the seeds straining to be set free. I thought it would be a more humorous look at the subject:
The End of the Line
All right, no shoving! Everybody out! It’s the end of the line for you!
Addendum: You don’t get it? When I think of the end of the line, I think of commuter trains during rush hour, stuffed full of people, much like this pod is stuffed full of seeds. When the doors open, the people spill out, free from the crowded compartments.
