  8. I love the second one. It looks like it’s made of delicate glass. Lovely!

    • Thank you, Carissa. I took another in black and white that also has a glass-like quality to it, now that you mention it. I’ll have to go back and compare them.

    These flowers look like silk. Or some other-world flowers. They are beautiful. Such use of light. WOW. I especially like the view looking down into the flowers.

    • I completely broke “the rules” with these in a way, by shooting into the glaring light at midday, but the petals themselves provided the perfect filter.

        How interesting. So that’s how you got away with it. Light is so very hard for me to control with my stubborn refusal to take that flash off! 🙂 The light worked really well here. These are wonderful.
