It is raining here in NYC and happily it is a beautiful Spring Thunderstorm. It is the first real rain of the season and I am loving it. So, today I thought I would share a little flower sunshine since I probably won't be seeing the sun today.
I can spend hours taking pictures. And, I can spend what seems like a lifetime to get a shot that I want. The photo above was that shot for me a few weeks ago. I had to find the right flower, the lighting had to be just right (this was taken in early morning light before the sun was overhead), and then my goal was to get the red edge in focus. I believe that I took 50-60 photos of the same flower and this is my favorite (no filters, no textures added).
In Central Park I have two favorite locations for taking flower pictures: Shakespeare Garden and the Conservatory Garden.
By the way, thank you for all your kind words yesterday about my kindness project and my paper flowers. I guarantee that you will probably see the paper flowers a few more times on the blog and I will definitely take photos of where I leave a few.
Thank you again for playing along.
