Feed Me Seymour
This picture kind of gives me the feeling that this flower bud is hungry and looking for food. I can imagine seeing teeth if the bud opened up right now and that the hungry thing would gobble up anything in its path.
My boss gave me the amaryllis bulb planted in a blue mixing bowl at Christmas time. The flower has finally started to bud and bloom. So I have pointed the camera and taken a couple pictures to share. Hopefully this spring and summer I will get some better chances to take some flower pictures. I think these came out pretty good considering I took them at the kitchen table in the middle of the afternoon.
I really love the way the red velvety texture of the petals came through in photos and the way the background blurs and goes to an almost black. I am starting to get a better handle on the mechanics of my camera. Once I get all that figured out - I'll have to figure out all the artistry involved too. I know I still have a long way to go.
