“Pink Clematis”

“Pink Clematis”

“The trick to forgetting the big picture is to look at everything close-up. The shortcut to closing a door is to bury yourself in the details. This is how we must look to God. As if everything’s just fine.”
― Chuck Palahniuk

Image number three in what has become my “Ordinary Flowers in a Different Light” series. Interestingly enough, this was a single blossom on one of my finicky clematis plants. They are strange in their blooming patterns. Some opening in May, while others have gone into November.

While the blossom is quite pretty, it tends to be a go-to garden plant and thus it’s been included in my “Ordinary Flowers” collection.

This studio photography experiment is quite enjoyable and is not something I saw myself gravitating towards. However, I do like the fine details this technique shows and really allows the plant to show off, as it were, without competing with their garden companions.

    • Oddly enough, my son took the studio lights for a work assignment and I had to improvise. So, I set up on my deck, which has translucent roof, which softened the sunlight. A very large soft box. 😀
