Showing off my Flower



I am once again using one photo to fulfill the needs of two posts. I am participating in Today's Flower for the first time and am using a photo I took this week at the local rose garden. I have been experimenting with macro photography and love the way the light is coming through the bottom left of this rose.


Because I think this is such a beautiful shot I am also using it for HS:MS, Show off Sunday! I hope you think it is worthy.


Something about the color and the curves of this rose reminds me of the paintings of Georgia O'Keefe....she was a wonderful artist and a woman I would have loved to conversed over tea with.

A stunningly BEAUTIFUL photograph Lucy. I have come to expect that from you in these pages. The light glowing through is very appealing. Your grandfather, again, would be so proud of you and your work.

Where the light hits the flower in the bottom left corner it almost begins to blend together, creating a very fluid motion of the petals. Very nice!

Beautiful! Yes very Georgia O'Keefe.

Yes, that does remind me of Georgia O'Keefe! Wonderful softness to the flower.

Absolutely lovely--and it does remind me of Georgia O'Keefe. We were lucky enough to visit her gallery in Sante Fe a few years ago. Wonderful--as is your photo. What macro lens do you have?

Beautiful, beautiful. It's all about the light, isn't it?

If you can dig up some old items (everything's on the web) Murray Alcosser is the most beautiful flower and especially rose photographer I ever saw. Well worth hunting out.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
