Wedding Inspired …

 

flowers I-10

My post today was inspired by the most beautiful flowers I had ever laid eyes on. Last weekend I attended the wedding of my niece and was captivated by the thousands and thousands of ‘wedding white’ flowers. Yes, all white. Who would have known how beautiful a lack of color could be.

I started this shoot with the intent of capturing only the anemic in color, but that just wouldn’t do. After one of the whitest winters in years, I couldn’t resist a palette that was rich in hues.

The Calla Lily is a Southern African plant which has a white funnel-shaped spathe exposing a yellow spadix.

All of these images were taken with my 40mm micro lens, a lens that I have neglected. Glad I gave it another shot!

I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t know the names of some of these flowers, although I did when I was shooting them. After I cropped these images I hadn’t a clue as to what they were. It’s amazing what the naked eye can and cannot see. The up close and personal sheds light on a totally new world where only Horton can hear a Who. Recently I joined The Garden Club, perhaps it’s time to brush up on my blossoms.

Ahh, the Rose  …  any of the wild or cultivated, usually prickly-stemmed, pinnate-leaved, showy-flowered shrubs of the genus Rosa.  Bella !
