REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Creative Exchange in pink

The flowers...mums from Colombia...are pinkish-lavender, actually, but I've accentuated the pink today for Lisa's Creative Exchange.  When I saw her fabulous macro trillium image, I was inspired to run outside to try some macro of my own.  The problem: it was still raining.  A bigger problem:  I really don't have any flowers budding, let along blooming. (Also, I don't think I could accomplish such a fabulous macro, anyway!)    So back inside to the flowers I bought myself yesterday.
