“Neon Bubblegum”

“Neon Bubblegum”

“We are entering the Dark Ages, my friend, but this time there will be lots of neon, and screen savers, and street lighting.”
― Edward St. Aubyn

The title for this image came fairly easily, though a bit quirky for me.

With this past Sunday being Mother’s Day and my wife’s birthday, I have a profusion of flowers to  photograph. There are many varieties of tulip, still not quite open, carnations, peruvian lilies, and a few brightly coloured dahlias. Some, like this one, make me wonder if they are naturally this colour, or if they are dyed. I suspect the answer is the latter. There have even been cases where I have seen them actually spray painted, as evidenced by bright red leaves.

In any case, this one had a nice shape and the colour sure is eye-catching.
