Tiger Lily Petals

Here is another photograph in the floral abstract series of images I’ve recently taken.  I love the way the petals seem to have a flowing motion, like the dress of a dancer as she spins.

Peach Flower Petals

A few weeks ago my husband bought me flowers for my birthday, and as always I had to photograph them.  They make perfect little models for my macro lens.  And, although I’ve taken so many flower photographs in the past, I’m always amazed to find something new and interesting.  This particular set of photographs are more like floral abstracts, and one thing I liked about them is how much the petals reminded me of flowing fabric.  Anyway, I’ll start the series by sharing this photograph, and I’ll gradually share over the coming weeks.

Red Rose

I never know what to buy my mother for mother’s day, so I bought her flowers.  They were beautiful, but not nearly as beautiful as she.  She told me, “Angie, you didn’t have to get me anything.”  I said, “Mom, you didn’t have to give birth to me.”  Ordinary gifts just can’t quite compare to the gift of life.

But the flowers were pretty!

Iris

My grandpa was a shy man.  Truth be told I had very few conversations with the man over the years.  Getting to know him wasn’t really possible by words alone, so one had to learn to appreciate the things he loved.  He was a gardener and was proud of his flowers, and sometimes even had us grand-kids help him plant.  He is gone now, but his flowers still bloom, and I like to take their pictures from time to time.

Daisy: Spring is finally here . . . almost

I decided to start my spring photography features with this Daisy photograph I took years ago.  It has a special place in my heart.  My nephew came into the house proudly carrying this beautiful daisy holding it out as a gift.  He found it and picked it all by himself just for his grandma . . . straight from her own flower garden! I love when kids do that, and of course my mother loved the gift no matter where it came from. Of course I had to photograph this special daisy.

Purple Flower and Water Drops

Here’s a macro image of a purple and white flower with water drops on its petals.  I don’t know if it is the colors, the water drops, or the lighting in the photo, but there is something about the flower that almost makes it look edible like it’s a candy flower.  I love it, and it is definitely one of my favorite photographs I took in the spring.

Red and Purple Tulips

I was going through my saved files of pictures the other day.  I’ve taken tens of thousands of photographs, and when I take pictures I usually edit them and then sort them into two main categories; those that I will make into prints, and those that aren’t quite good enough but are worth keeping for myself.  The rest get deleted.  Every now and then I’ll find a picture that I disregarded the first time around, but later see it and really like it.  This is one of those pictures.  I have no idea why it didn’t make the cut in the beginning because I really like the colors and how bright and cheerful it is.  It is a keeper for sure.
