Yesterday I took a walk through one of my favorite neighborhoods. Everyone appears to have a green thumb and their gardens are so lush and vibrant. It was early afternoon and the angle of the light was really not ideal which meant that I needed to find creative angles. This shot jumped out at me because there was a section where the petals were hanging out of the way like a window into the heart of the flower. It was really quite beautiful and the hard light made most of the background disappear.
