Word and Image

Sunflower

It’s back to nature. I like flowers. I was an avid container gardener on my rooftop deck garden for many years. Often the most color you will run across is in cut flower bunches. But the image may appear too busy without something that directs the viewer’s eye. Close ups will help to block distraction. Here the center of the bloom makes a nice pattern against the bright yellow background.

  1. Ah, we both did sunflowers today. 🙂 Different takes, but interesting all together. You can see our different styles, which is wonderful. 🙂

  3. Lovely vivid hues!
    “But the most color you will run across is in cut flower bunches”? You must come visit our indoor plants and bulbs during winter in Alaska!

    • I corrected myself per your observation. I would love to visit Alaska anytime. Your photos are wonderful. Meanwhile cut flower bunches have the blooms all pushed together and make a great concentration of color. Having photographed many bunches, I find that one still needs a point of interest in the image.

  4. I completely agree about the need for a point of interest, Victor. And thank you for accepting my outburst so gracefully. You’ve reinforced my pleasure in receiving notifications of your new posts by email. (I can seldom remember sites by bookmarks or by RSS methods.)

    Thanks, again.
