I don't really love photographing nature, either, although this blog is fairly unconvincing to that end, I'm sure. But it's not something I get excited about, or plan for. If I happen to see something beautiful, though, why not capture it to keep?
I love these roses because of the contrast of the pale inner side of the petal against the deeply hued outer side. The only thing that would make these shots more stereotypical than ever would be glistening water drops hanging precariously from the petals. Heck, lets add some to the butterfly wings, too. I'm going to start 'Shopping glistening water drops onto everything...Especially Maisie's eyes, that would be perfection. I almost can't stand it.
