Now I love bouquet's, but there is something unique about the individual flower that makes it beautiful, like this one. I like to capture images in angles. The color at the edges of this rose is so pretty. The site of them adds this sentimental joy to my heart, even when they are not bouquets that I can claim are my own; though blessed to see the many that I did before my eyes.
During lunch time one day, I decided to take a nice walk through Battery Park and this was peeking out of one of its many bushes. I like the way that it stands out. Seeing nature before my eyes was almost as refreshing as listening to Beethoven's Fur Elise. Very nice thing to see that can change the outlook of a day, like it did mine.
I captured this in a morning stroll through Manhattan. I love the colors inside of the petals. The color adds definition to the flower like Cecilia Bartoli's voice adds definition to instrumental music. I was trying to make sure the color scheme of it was not distorted through picture taking or the editing of it. Flowers are beautiful like art. There is a plethora of these flowers sitting pretty across from Ground Zero. I mean, what a place to be. But of all the bad things you could think about while in that particular area, these actually bring on a smile and I love that.
Thanks for stopping by!
