One more colour image of the calla lily Tim found in a laneway last week. I could take endless photos of these flowers – I love their delicacy and seeming-simplicity, yet there’s a robustness and complexity to them too.
What do you think? Are you as captivated by these flowers as I am?
I’d been looking for calla lilies for a few days when Tim spotted some in a laneway on his way to the station.
I had in mind a black and white shot, reminiscent of the beautifully classical work of Robert Mapplethorpe (a very ambitious aim) but when it came time to process the images I found many of the colour ones just as appealing. I’ll get to some of the black and white ones in coming days, but for now, here’s one in colour.
The lines of these flowers are delicate and beautiful, and there’s a sense of movement captured within the image that I particularly like.
Thanks to Tim for lighting this so beautifully.
Tulips v5 … it’s finally spring in the southern hemisphere and the tulips are rioting – jumping right out (riot out) of the frame!
Tim and I set ourselves a challenge yesterday – find some flowers (or a single flower) and take a photo.
Simple, straightforward … or so it would seem. I had a shot in mind, but couldn’t find the flower I wanted, so had to make do with some tulips!
It wasn’t difficult!!
There weren’t many flowers at the National Rhododendron Garden on the weekend, but I did manage to stumble across this one, hidden in the shrubbery. If you know what it is, can you please let me know in the comments? Thanks 🙂
The seeming simplicity hides a complexity of form and colour and texture.
