‘Red Peruvian Lilies”

“Red Freesia”

“Did you want to save me now or does later fit better into your schedule?”
― Sarah E. Morin

Despite being a bit beat up, this small bouquet of red freesia is still quite lovely. It’s a bit of a ‘rescue’, pulled from a discarded bouquet ,but still wonderful on its own. The leaves have taken a bit of abuse, yet the blossoms are still in good condition.

There is something about this photography style that brings out the best in the subject. I’m convinced that I could photograph a piece of garbage this way and still have it look good. After all, not so long ago, a photo of a potato sold for over a million dollars, presented in the same style.

Apparently, there are big bucks out there to be had 🙂

  1. You’re welcome …. I did a flower- arranging course many years ago and we had to learn the latin and common names of all our plants. At my age I’m surprised I can still remember them ! well most of them ….
