Hi everybody 🙂
Each time a flower blooms in my garden I am like a child receiving a Christmas gift. I am focused on this one flower that has magically opened its petals and it never ceases to amaze me just how beautiful flowers are. But flowers do not exist only for their nectar or for us to marvel at their grace and beauty. They have another important purpose and message. A gift for us humans.
Flowers are among us to ease our journey
To lighten our hearts in the midst of storms in our lives
To remind us to turn toward the sun’s rays instead of reaching in the darkness of our sorrows
To open our hearts to heal
To be happy
To smile and laugh
To keep our child’s heart
And to love
At this time of year, as the flowers begin to wither, I always feel a little pinch in the heart to see them go…
Another of my favourite photographers, especially in flower photography, is Kathleen Clemons. Her photos are a real delight for the eyes. She mostly uses the Lensbaby for her flower shots, a lens I am thinking of buying for flower photography. The Lensbaby offers different lenses and optics which produces creative effects of selective focus with a sweet spot of sharp focus that I really love in flower photography.

Autumn colours are almost at their peak here, so I’ll try to take a few hours this week to capture these wonderful colours.
Have a beautiful week !
