I started to love photography with the idea of portraying the “small perfections of nature,” small exhibitions that leave you stunned, and that too many times you are likely to trample on rather than to photograph. In recent years, moreover, besides this motto, I chose another, “See and Photograph”, which represents better than many others the way I do photography: when I think of photography as I like it, I think of a set of things, including carefully observe what surrounds me and possibly photograph it. The vision, seen as its ability to figure out how to make a photograph as the ability to identify the right subjects, it is the turning point of my photography.
As on other occasions, walking in the woods, my gaze fell on the location of this small flower, which showed its B-side from the meandering stem, representing the beauty of the little things in nature and allowing me to fully enjoy the pleasure of being able to see the subject. This was followed by long periods of careful composition, then the joy of shooting and so on all the rest: the impatience to get home to see the result, the first adjustment the final processing and the completion of a photograph from the my favorites.

    More than just a flower photo. Quite nice.

    So many flower photos have little or no interpretive qualities….The ‘B’ side of the flower works quite well here and your choice of framing with the bokeh/out of focus background really strengthens the composition.

    The warm/cool contrast is just icing on the cake.
