…Or more appropriate-imperfect subjects.
I have a client who doesn’t like photos of flowers, landscapes or nature that have such things as dying leaves or petals in them.
He wants the perfect photo, and he proceeds to show me examples on the internet of what he is talking about.
So the sunflower to the right, taken late in the summer, when the sunflowers were past peak, would not be to his liking. I even titled the photo in “honor” of my client.
So I write this blog pointing out my imperfect subjects which I will keep on photographing because, hey, nothing is really perfect, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
My favorite season is upon us now and my next few blogs will be about Autumn colors. If you think about it, Fall is all about photographing dying leaves as you can see from the photo on the left. The spectacular colors we get are often dead or dying leaves, preparing to drop, so life can begin anew in the Spring.
So enjoy my flawed subjects because I enjoy photographing them. They deserve the limelight this week and every week to remind us how imperfect nature is and how we still can appreciate that imperfection.
Let me know your thoughts on this subject, and guess what my client would say was flawed about the subject below., and do you agree?
As always, thank you for supporting my work!
Up next week, I am blogging on Downton Abbey.
