sunday stills - texture

This week's Sunday Stills challenge was texture. This little flower popped up unexpectedly on the side of my lawn. I initially noticed it for the colour...but as I took a closer look I saw a variety of texture's and surfaces on the delicate flower. It continues to amaze me...the things that you can see in this world through the lens of camera.

One of the things photography forces us to do is look.

And when you take the time to look you find the most amazing things.

One of the things I have discovered and so value is how this meme inspires me to more fully experience my world. Your photo is just lovely, so many variations in texture in one beautiful flower!
