About a week ago, I posted about my obsession with magnolias which sadly, are all but gone at this point, thanks to high winds and the ever changing season. However, with the changes in temperature and the advance of Spring comes my favorite flowering tree, the dogwood.
“April hath put the spirit of youth in everything (Sonnet XCVIII)”
The moment I saw this flower, walking through the botanical garden, I knew exactly how I wanted the shot to look… like smoke billowing out from the amazing textured center of the flower.
Today’s Photo of the Day, “Smoke,” was one of the original pieces in my gallery and it remains one of my favorites. So much so that I’ve recently created this canvas quad out of it:
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and, for those of you in the same situation as we’re in here in Chicago, please be very careful out there in this dreaded heat! (I really don’t know which is worse, being snowed in by a blizzard or trapped in the house due to deadly heat) Have a great one all!
