Macros of lilies

These somewhat bruised and battered lilies are my contribution to Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge.  When you see from whence they come, you will understand why they’ve been jostled about in less than nurturing environs.

BouquetS 1From a distance, it’s a beautiful riot of colors, but upon closer inspection, it brings to my mind something akin to the high-density cattle lots that I saw in Northern Texas.  The comparison is oblique, I admit, but if you love flowers, then it’s quite apt.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
