:: beautiful ugly :: | monthly challenge by maibritt

The CM challenge this month was shooting ::beautiful ugly:: which I interpreted to be finding beauty in something, you would normally perceive as ugly.

It didn't take me long to think of dead flowers, as I had shot those for a challenge like this before. I love finding the beauty in a dead flower. 

I have always wanted to try to work with textures and imediately knew, that I wanted to incorporate that into this challenge as well to enhance the dead flower.

This is my first try at working with textures, so please don't be too hard on me.

This was os much fun. I can't wait to start working on next month's challenge.

Now please follow the circle and go see what the talented Lori Zornes of Lori Zornes Photography is up to :o)


{spring...} by maibritt

To me Spring is about longer days, light and flowers... tulips are Spring. No Spring without tulips - no tulips without Spring :o)

I bought some the other day - they came with the cutest 'vintage blue-ish' paper around the pot. Of corse I had to capture them... on went my macro lens... remember to me flowers + macro = love ;o)
