This is partly by way of blogger’s apology because I am having so much fun photographing flowers that my blogging time has eroded a bit lately. It’s fun developing new techniques for capturing flowers—an elusive, senuous and beautiful subject even when (as with the Matilija Poppies shown here) they are essentially growing wild on a strip between the sidewalk and a major thoroughfare.
