Over the past 3 years, when I photographed flowers in my garden, I always took full on shots, to capture the entire bloom & I was happy with that. 

This spring, my mindset on what is beautiful about flowers has changed as my macro photography skill morphed into something that I did not imagine.  My hand has become very steady, I have learned to work with the wind, when conditions are not in my favor & I now use rain to my advantage.

Lately, I have been finding the beauty in what makes flowers beautiful & have been loving my discoveries inside, and around blooms.

I don’t post many floral shots here but I have flooded my Flickr page with them & I have been enjoying the responses to my abstract macro floral shots,

Here are a few from today that I took after I walked my mother through my gardens.  She managed to get me to give her a few things but some thing I just could not part with, such as my “flame” calla lilies.
