Flower Swirl

West Chicago, Illinois

e050731a138a-fs.

I've seen this in the magazines so much, I decided to give it a try. I blurred a straight picture of flowers, then gave it the swirl. Not bad, but it's not going to win any awards.

Kate's Daylillies

Kate's Daylillies

Kate has several different plantings of daylillies around her garden and she asked me to photograph them so she could have a visual inventory for when she starts moving stuff around. While most of the shots were just documentary and won't get seen here, I got a little arsty-fartsy with this one.
