I like to photograph flowers of all kinds. The colors are usually what entice me to take the pictures, but in some cases it is the flower’s unusual shape.
I liked the striking shape of this first flower. I encountered it at a local arboretum as I was photographing some other items. This single flower was alone among many green leaves. I do not know what type of flower this is (Maybe someone can tell me) but I fell in love with it visually almost immediately.
Because of the uniqueness of the flower I wanted to present it a little differently. I decided to use iSplash, a Mac application that allowed me to covert the photo to black and white and then selectively add color back in.
I used iSplash on this tulip also because I liked the isolation that the application provided.
Hopefully someone will be able to identify the first flower for me. I would like to find more to photograph.
