I must confess, I am obsessed with taking pictures of flowers. Every chance I get, “click” goes my camera. I try every angle, every setting on my camera, zoom in and out, put the camera upside down, behind my back and sometimes close my eyes to see what happens.
Every flower is unique and holds its own character. There are those that appear in the forefront of the bushes, while others shy away behind the masses. However, if you are careful and patient you can make your way to the back of the group and find the beauty that the front line hides. Some flowers have small thorns that are easily missed unless they happen to get a hold of your skirt, scarf or shirt. Some flowers have multiple, vibrant, powerful colors that simply make your eyes smile. While others are covered with only one dose of happiness and are similarly as pleasant to any eye. I found my favorite flowers in my backyard, across the street, in the school’s yard, on my way back from a hike and on my way home. Sometimes I’m lucky enough to find a bee or butterfly keeping the flower company. Enjoy the flowers I found in Romania.
