But when you’re walking through a room and notice how lovely a dying flower — the bouquet that should have made it to the trash last night — looks, you have to grab your camera. And then, of course, there is post processing.
Textures: one of my own (based on a blurry shot of the woods taken through the window), and French Kiss’ Purple Prose (once over entire image, removed from flower; once for the frame).
I think this looks like an iris, but it was actually a tulip, about to drop its last petals. The backlighting gave it an eery purple hue. Never know where inspiration will come from!
