Flower getting ready to bloom

While we are on the subject of flowers with the photos I have posted during the last few days, I thought I would show this photo of a flower that has not yet bloomed. As readers of this and my wife's Scottsdale Daily Photo site know, she takes lots of macro photos of flowers, and I take very few.

I have acquired a greater appreciation for the architecture of flowers through Julie's macro photography and have taken some photos such as this to illustrate the developmental stages of the blooming flower. This reminds me of fireworks launched into the sky, not yet exploding into a burst of color.

if this week you have not yet checked out our photos of the Villa Balbianello in Lake Como, Italy, please check out our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

That light green around the dark center almost looks like a set of crooked teeth. This looks to me like it will be a large bloom when it opens.

Nice macro effort. It takes patience.

Glad you are enjoying the museum shots. I have been to Pasadena and the Huntington, but it has been quite a while. I remember some British portraits, maybe Gainsborough.
