Water Drops on an Orange Lily
"We do not evaluate the result but the starting point of the creative process."
--Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
When I do not capture a perfectly sharp or composed image, I look for colors and shapes or moods and emotions, before I decide if the raw photograph is worth working on or destined for the trash. Case in point: this shot of water drops on an orange lily. I'll save you all of the details, but I will say that trying to capture a macro shot of a flower without a tripod on a breezy day in the shade makes it difficult to get things anywhere near in focus. However, I love, love, love the color, the shapes, and the abstract yet familiar lines.
