Photography: In my Garden

In My Garden, Photography

The iris has been found throughout the world for centuries. It has often been associated with royalty and has been found on flags, including the fleur-de-lis. This perennial is one of the easiest flowers to grow and puts on quite a show. Isn’t it great that we do not have to be rich to have such showy flowers?  Gardens are such lovely places and one where there is always something new to admire, photograph, and learn more about.

Photography ~ Finding Inspiration

Macro Photography

If you are a creative type, where do you find your inspiration? Who lights or inspires you to study in a certain direction, technique, or subject? One of my inspirations are the large flowers painted by Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986), artist and ‘Mother of American Modernism’.

“Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” ~ (Georgia O’Keeffe).

No… I cannot draw or paint and I am not anywhere in comparison to O’Keeffe’s art, but I do have a camera and the desire. She inspires me to keep working on my images, including this one of my many flowers. There are always such surprises and beauty found in their structures and essence. Like many other artists, progressive improvement is the end goal throughout it all and to keep working at it, no matter your medium.
