People have always enjoyed the natural beauty of flowers and it's for this reason that most people who have ever held a camera (even if just on their phone) have tried to capture a flower's beauty at some point in time. I have mostly photographed flowers at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, the Swan Island Dahlia Farm, Portland's waterfront cherry blossoms, the Portland International Test Rose Garden and lastly in my mother's previous backyard flower garden. The world is not in need of more flower photographs, but I still cannot keep myself from trying to capture the beauty that so powerfully draws us to them.
