Thematic Photographic 112 - Flowers


Natural sculpture
Thornhill, ON, August 2010
[Click photo to enlarge]

I've been shooting flowers for almost as long as I've been shooting at all. They stay in one place, they don't talk back, and they let you linger for as long as you need to get the shot. I've accumulated enough pictures of these delightfully ornate examples of Mother Nature's artistry that I thought it might be neat to share 'em for a week. Hence, this week's Thematic Photographic theme, flowers (I know, such a surprise.)

Your turn: Thematic Photographic is our weekly photo sharing extravaganza. It's actually quite simple. Just post a flower-themed pic over at your place. Come on back here and leave the link in a comment. Click over to other participants to share the wealth. Rules are here. All Thematic-themed entries are here. Wagering is strongly frowned on, but simple enjoyment is majorly encouraged.

I love the texture in this photograph and the way that the curved petals draw me in to look closer.

Very beautiful, a Mum I believe. One of my favorite colors in a flower, and quite a scent too.

I love your flower photos. Sometimes I think you buy them for me so you can photograph them! :-)

You have have taken so many over the years. I can't pick a favourite, but probably something pink!

Again, an older one from me again, here

Now I have another set of flower photos - a little different, a little more harder edged.

I went looking for flowers. What I found made me think a different way about them.
