When you look at a flower through the camera lens you see things that you may never have noticed when viewing them with the naked eye. The complex textures, intense colors, and the unexpected shapes are compelling. Some are soft and gentle in their beauty, some are funny, and some are just … strange, proving that God has an intense sense of humor and a strong imagination.
