One Single Flower LAPC#101

This week Cee’s Photo Challenges is the guest host on the Lens Artists Photo Challenge of the week. And Cee has given a wonderful challenge to all who want to participate. Her challenge: One Single Flower

When I saw the amazing responses to the challenge I thought:
“Well I don’t have any flower photos that could be suitable for this challenge.” The other responses from the Lens Artists were so beautiful. So I thought I would pass for this week. But then….this morning my husband said to me: “Have you seen the Iris in the garden? You should take some photos they are beautiful.”

Camera in hand I went out to take a look. He was right they were beautiful.

This is the view from above the Iris.

I thought that I would also include a peony as it looked so pretty.

Thank you Cee for this challenge. It made me step out of my photography comfort zone and these lovely flowers deserve to be captured!

      Thank you! I am glad he prompted me to take photos of them as well. This year they have been so lovely and it will be nice to have the photos to remember them.

    Oh I am so happy you decided to play along. Your irises and peony are so beautiful πŸ˜€ My favorite is the iris where your camera is point straight down on it. It is so unusual. Love it. Thanks ever so much for joining in on the fun. πŸ˜€
