Sitting in front of a bed of blooming flowers is aesthetically pleasing. The mixture of colors on green stalks is mesmerizing. I have tried in vain to take a picture of a flower cluster than I find appealing. It seems I can never create a composition that approximates the awe I feel when observing such natural beauty.
This picture felt drab to me until I ran it through a Georgia O’keeffe filter in Photoshop. The lines became more sinuous, almost sensuous. For me, it still doesn’t capture the awe I felt when looking at them but it’s a picture I feel moves in the right direction.
