Look closer

The closer you look, the more you see.

I often marvel at the intricate details of nature. You don’t have to go far to see beauty close-up. Since it has been raining heavily this week I have been going through my archives of floral photos and found these.

Head Shots with a floral twist

I was fortunate enough to know a professional portrait photographer who could make me look good for my head shot in my online testimonial for the British College of Journalism.

Seeing that head shot gave me an idea for a series of the floral variety so here they are. Do you have a favorite?

Fuchsias in Bloom

The flower that inspired a name for a color. The first two images were taken of a plant growing in a pot on a main road in Monterey, California. The third image is from the garden next door. Wherever they grow they provide a vibrant and eye-catching display.
