divine dahlia: part one…

Divine Dahlia 1

Ok.  I’m in love with this flower.  It is one of the gorgeous dahlia plants that my mother has at home…and it was so beautifully colored and flawless that I simply couldn’t resist making it the star of its very own photo shoot.  This photo is number one of a 3 photograph mini-series.

As usual, the amazing Canon Powershot G7 was used.  I think it was definitely more fortuitous than planned that the detail in this bloom showed up so well…who knew dahlias have tiny hair-like things on their petals (look at the center petals up close).  And, I’m happy to announce that the sunlight was so perfect that absolutely nothing was “fixed” on this photo…straight from the memory card!  Yay!

    • Thank you! Its funny, I actually had the same feeling about this photograph. It felt like it was a coy someone slowly letting someone else (perhaps the viewer?) in.
