A still life floral iPhoneography image. Heavily textured to give a painterly feel. This style of processing is something I enjoy especially when I can’t get out on the streets and photograph people. I do find myself drawn to photograph floral images but I do find beauty in almost anything and actually I enjoy the anticipation before the bloom and the decay after it much more than the event itself.
