This was one of the very first textured flowers I ever attempted. Call it beginner’s luck, but it came out fairly well in spite of my lack of technique and rudimentary grasp of Photoshop and layers. But I just remember having so much fun creating it. And today it is still a personal favorite and one of my most popular pieces on Flickr.
I think it will always be important to me because it gave me a hint of what was possible with photography. It was the beginning of a new and exciting direction that I’m still exploring and learning about. I’m hanging this work in the gallery over at Photo Art Friday which this week features our favorite or best pieces of photo art. I can’t wait to see what else is hanging there!
