Today I thought I would try something a little different.
I have subscribed to a host of blogs by Alison Lee who writes the Writing Wishing Blog. I would highly recommend her to anyone who enjoys reading blogs!
Anyways… when I discovered that the word for Through the Lens Thursday was going to be FLOWER, I decided what a great way to spruce up these winter days in Michigan!
These 2 images are both of Tiger Lilies from my back yard.
This baby of a flower is a Purple Cone Flower and grows to become a fairly large flower at maturity.
Not only do I like to take pictures documenting different stages in a flowers life cycle… I also enjoy playing with my focal point, depth of field and rule of thirds.
On to the lovely Black Eyed Susan of the bunch!
Flowers serve as a great tool to not only play with angles, lighting, water droplets but to work on your macro photography… all things wonderful that come from a mixture of my love for photography and gardening!
