My lunch break often means that I escape my office with my camera in hand. I take a walk and explore. I look for shapes or I try to only take photos of a single color. I make it a game, all to take my mind off the spreadsheet work I was doing, the frustration, and the day to day analytical work that I do.
This is a door to a building at 181 Madison Avenue in NYC. This building was once home to the Cheney Silk Company. They commissioned Edgar Brandt, known for his Art Deco ironwork, to create these doors. I think they are beautiful.
I walk past them every week day. I see flowers.
It looks like a beautiful Art Deco zentangle.
I also notice flowers in places where I wouldn't expect to see them - like the window of the church below.
How about this one? I see them everyday. Can you see the flower below?
So, during the month of May, I want to encourage you to slow down, every once in awhile and pause, look and see if you notice more flowers around you.
Thank you for participating in my May Flower Challenge.
Participate by linking your blog post to my blog post. Each day during May, starting on May 1st, on my blog post I will have a linkytool available so that you can link your specific blog post (not just your blog but the post itself) to my blog post.
Participate by linking to the flickr group - May Flower Challenge- and adding a photo of your flower creation. Don't forget to leave a comment and then hop around and visit the other participants to see their flowers for the day.
