Close-ups at Hugh’s Garden – FineGardening

In the present day’s images are by Hugh Locke.

As cellular phone cameras have improved, I have been utilizing mine to seize close-up pictures of flowers in my backyard in Westchester, New York (Zone 6b). My purpose has been to give attention to particulars like petals, stamens and pistils quite than flower portraits. The folds, shadows and edges of a petal grow to be a examine in movement. Somewhat flower turns into a flower. A petal turns into an overview map with coloured markings. None of those images have been manipulated or filtered, aside from being cropped. The final photograph is of an indoor plant as a nod to the winter that’s being endured till we will get again into the backyard.
