Beauty in Everything I

Dead Flower Macro, Stanley Park, Vancouver

christine: One February afternoon while I was impatiently seeking signs of the upcoming spring, I saw these wilted flowers remaining from the previous year. At first glance the flowers were dull, drab, and lifeless. But on second look, the wilted flowers took on a lacy delicate appearance through the late-afternoon sun. I let my camera do its work. An elderly woman, who we met through previous trips in the gardens, stopped to see what I was doing. She asked me why I was interested in photographing dead flowers such as that. I just replied to her that there is beauty in everything.

How I wish I knew to photograph in RAW back then...
Canon EOS 10D: 100mm (160mm) f/2.8 1/90" ISO 250 Capture time: 2005-02-27 18:26:16

Ah, “dull, drab, and lifeless”? No way. Owning a camera is the best way to open our eyes to the beauty around us.

It's amazing how many things we can walk by every day and never notice until we look at them through the eyes of a photographer. Excellent shot.
