Flowers, Echo Bay ON

Flowers are great subjects: unless windblown, they don’t move around, and they’re inherently attractive.

Flowers are lousy subjects: they’re too often merely beautiful, leading to trite images.

So I find it interesting to try to find different ways of looking at the flowers in my everyday surroundings.

  1. Nothing trite about these photos, esp. the first one.

  2. You do manage to catch them when they are not being “merely” beautiful. Although capturing their beauty is surely also worthy of your time and of ours. Your attention to details, background colours, contrasts of colour and shape, and peculiarities all contrive to make your photos engaging.

      Laurna – Thanks! I think that I take photos intuitively, and might be a more reliable photographer if I had some structure around the points you describe – so I’d know what I was looking for/at, if you see what I mean.
