“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.” Therese of Lisieux

Creative Photography – Fun with Daisies

“You use a mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul”, George Bernard Shaw. 

The Chicago Botanic Gardens offered an abstract photography class. I didn’t take the class because I am particularly fond of abstract photography, I enrolled because I had heard that the class material challenged students to look at the subject matter from a different perspective and creatively shoot.

The photograph above of two placed daisies was shot on a piece of mylar film. 

f/7.1; 1/80; ISO 800.
