“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.” ― Matt Hardy
I started out this spring hoping to find enough wild flowers to photograph so I could pull together a collection to post here. I did, and it turned out to be a fun project.
A very conventional approach to wild flower photography is to capture that great picture of sweeping fields of flowers with the mountains or an old barn in the background. And although I love photos like that I decided to take a different approach. I wanted to try and capture photos of flowers that tend to be a bit more overlooked, often growing in solitude deep in the forest or along a road or trail less traveled: I went looking hoping to capture some of the unsung hero’s of the wild flower world.
I do realize that “wild” flowers can be a bit subjective since many can be found in both the wild as well as in someone’s flowerbeds so some of my shots are of what may be viewed as more common flowers. However, all of photographs in the portfolio are of flowers growing wild, found for the most part in less obvious places that required some looking.
Hope you enjoy the photos, and perhaps next year I will look for those spectacular wild flower vistas.
Up Next:: Olympia’s Street Art: Be it graffiti, civic minded beautification, speaking a cause, or entrepreneurial promotion the art work found along our streets and hidden in its alleys can be fascinating and reflect artistic talent that is often overlooked. Come back and see what I found.
Last Look:This is the last call for my Desert Bloom portfolio; I will be taking it down when I post my Olympia’s Street Art portfolio next, so now is the time to take a last look
