A Few Flower Photographs

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am at the support I’ve gotten for my photographs! I am really touched. Today I wanted to make another “creative” post, but just couldn’t get behind showing any of the things I’ve started but not finished. What is consuming me creatively, is the photography so I hope you’ll indulge me one more post. However, I am working on finishing the linen series with hems, sewing, etc.

We have a big rose garden on the terrace and I’ve followed the season from the beginning first blossoms. I like the buds a lot.

I also like to take “arty-fartsy” photos of the roses. Lately our rose committee has dead-headed the roses so scrupulously that there aren’t many opportunities to find things.

I think this is called a passionflower bush.

A pink rose. What more can be said? Perhaps, I might need to look for captions for flowers here. Ugh, do I?

I liked this flower and was reminded of my mentor, Helen Pope. Her ikebana teacher recommended humiliating the main beauty by having something, maybe a leaf just slightly in front of it. I often have thought of that with my weaving and creative things.

Another rose. I like the two-tone color scheme.

  1. I just have to say that I am loving your photographs! Especially the flowers, as they are one of my favourite things to capture with my camera.

  2. Glad to read you are finally out to walk upon this earth. Your photos are amazing with sensitivity and depth. Keep up the wonderful work.

  3. I like the “artsy-fartsy” macro image of the blown rose. It’s beautiful and interesting on the face of it, and also a metaphor that even after the bloom fades, the rose has a lot going on.

  4. Hi Peggy, I’m not one for flowers, but I do love your photographs, they are beautiful! They remind me of Georgia O’Keefe and her intimate portraits of flowers. My favorites are the second and third photographs, just stunning! Please don’t stop taking and sharing, your posts always brighten my day, thank you!

  5. Peggy, thank you so much for all your wonderful and educational posts. I always learn so much especially from your recent rose photograph that shows humility.
    Thank you! Kathleen
