Flowers and Me

I thought so last week, and have the same thought this morning. 



Rather than get bored over weeks imagining those are as pretty as Sakura, and then seeing myself become a flower too, I decide to display and make sense of them in pictures. But they tend to blur themselves by the boundary of beauty, even my many tries with different settings and from various angles. I love sharpness.

It is a game of tug-of-war between me and nature, between our definitions of beauty.

It is extremely mind-boggling. These flowers win in a row. I have to give in, finally.

Lovely flowers, Rainfield..The softness and colors are beautiful. The sharpness is not necessary.. Have a happy weekend!

The flower is beautiful and unique! Sharpness can cut..so be as soft and pretty as the flower :)

I love the 'softness' of the image, though I too prefer sharpness.
Beautiful!

I'm like you -- I also like the sharpness, although both of your photos are beautiful.

I like seeing the green seed pod (I think that's what it is) .... and the soft flower. Sometimes that's perfect.

I tend to like sharp images but your first photo is also very lovely.

It's not always easy to get the effect you desire. These are lovely little flowers.

2nd picture- symmetry in the flower and asymmetry in the rest of the image. I like it.

The flower beauty is in par with sakura.

Very strange looking flowers! Nice photos!

i love sharpness too, but the blurring effect in these flowers surely added more beautiful aura into them, the flower power that draws you in.

Even though it's always spring and summer where you live, this makes me think happy thoughts of spring.
