Flowers. Enough said. Anyone who follows me in the least knows flowers are my game! Each flower shoot is a challenge to myself to take it to the next level, try something different, push my skills/learning to the limits, create something unique that one would consider art. Inspiration-I can't put my finger on it... When I am given the opportunity to shoot flowers, I just sink into another world. They are no longer flowers, just an opportunity to create something new out of something already beautiful. I like to bring out imperfections, make them beautiful. I love Georgia O'Keefe, and from time to time I can really capture her style in my photography. Others who shoot flora art are also an inspiration. I love to constant study those who are better, and examine what they do. Having said all of that, I hope you enjoy these next few photos. I have purchased a Spring bouquet from Kroger and took them outside on my front porch, attached my flash and homemade diffuser. Some of them are natural light, some are with my flash. I personally really like these because of the light, yet vibrant colors. Some of these at first glance, took my breath away...but after I have looked at them over and over, the perfectionist in me has torn them apart. I hope as first lookers, you like them, just as I did at first glance.
Enjoy, and take care!

I thought I would end with the sprouting Buttercups. I have probably never noticed this before. Here in the midst of the historical winter storm, and our snow-ridden Winter here in Kentucky, is this little tiny sign that yes, Spring is on it's way.
Goodnight friends and followers!
