Focus On Life 2014!

Week Eight: Capture Color

My original thought for this week was immediately drawn to the over flowing draw of unopened packages of polymer clay sitting in my craft room. Then I thought about it and decided why take a picture of something man made when it's Mother Nature who has no comparison in this category.
 
Not all of these pictures were taken this past week (I wish), but they have all been taken by me at one time or another over the past year of the orchids on my patio.
The backgrounds on many of these photos have been blackened but all of the colors of the blooms are untouched. The two that aren't blacked out are in bloom now.
 

 
Mother Nature wins!
See you next week.
Now please take some time to visit the others in this weekly blog hop at: The Studio Sublime.

  1. What a super beautiful collage - LOVE all of these flowers. And your photography of them is superb! Our roses got cut back this week and so I snapped some man made stuff - but flowers are always just gorgeous, aren't they?

  5. Great colors! Love all your photos, and I too wish I had orchids. Anywhere! Funny thing is, there are several commercial orchid greenhouse operations in my area, but of course, we don't see them.
