Adding To My Palette

We discovered a new colour in the garden the other day... this gorgeous powder-blue. It popped up long enough for us to grab this shot and share it but quickly disappeared later that same day. We have yet to see other buds or blossoms from this vine and it makes it all the more spectacular … Continue reading Adding To My Palette

A Single Tear for Whiteness

Please focus on the right side of the shot, where a single drop of dew slowly rolls down the gentle petal, like the tear rolling down the soft skin of your love's cheek. The monochrome petals look sensuous and invite the lover's touch on their surfaces. It may be challenging for normal fingers to touch … Continue reading A Single Tear for Whiteness

A Natural Choice

I'm continuously fascinated by what happens to the dandelion flower when it turns to seed. I've never seen any plant in the transition from the bright and wet yellow blossom to this bone-dry constellation of seeds. I wonder how it happens. How does each yellow petal change humidity, colour, texture, and shape? These look dead, … Continue reading A Natural Choice

A Brightness of Yellow

In a field filled with greens, there spoke a tiny voice loudly! this tiny yellow flower shone with such volume that it became a brightness of colour. It shouted, "see me shine, see my beauty, see my yellow"! It is beautiful, joyous, and glorious. Prints & more available at Arts MPerron @ https://1-mario-perron.pixels.com

Finding The Sunset in a Flower

To the naked eye, this flower appears canary yellow. I moved the plant around and allowed the bright sunlight to move across and through the petals, then I started to see they were actually made up of many colours. I didn't achieve this sunset range with vibrancies, not saturations, they were all hiding in the … Continue reading Finding The Sunset in a Flower

Cinematic Blossoms

Can you imagine that these are actually bright red flowers? I was really enjoying the angle of this shot and how I felt a tension between the stalk holding the flower and the seemingly escaping movements of the blossoms themselves. As usual, I saw this in my head, not in my eye, so I wasn't … Continue reading Cinematic Blossoms

And Then There Was Yellow

I'd like to claim that I was focusing on the tiny, brown bug crawling on the spiny leaf in front of a vast black backdrop, when this massive yellow flower photo-bombed the frame, but... I was trying to capture this unexpected yellow in my garden. I was having one of the days were I just … Continue reading And Then There Was Yellow

The Backyard is Filled with The Scent of a Single Jasmine Flower

I bought my wife a jasmine plant for our anniversary. They looked dismal at the nursery and I was afraid that they wouldn't deliver the perfume she loves so much. This plant has over-delivered. Sit on our deck at sunset when the neighbourhood starts to get quiet, then an exp.osion occurs. Not of sound, but … Continue reading The Backyard is Filled with The Scent of a Single Jasmine Flower

Into It!

The Cabot rose bush is giving us the most gorgeous flowers this year! They constantly reach for the sun, especially after heavy rains. Get in close and see the ecosystem that plays within the folds of this beautiful blossom. To the naked eye, the petals look very fragile, but the camera has caught a robust … Continue reading Into It!

Getting to the heart Of It

The entire diameter of this amazing blossom is about half an inch (1 cm). Unless you get really close it looks faded and unremarkable. Superimpose it over bright green foliage and it starts to vibrate with colour. Get closer still and you realize this flower is pink, white, orange, and yellow. The inside presents its … Continue reading Getting to the heart Of It
