Tuesday Photo Challenge: Growth

Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Growth’, so flowers seems like a logical place to go to find an appropriate image, notwithstanding that I posted a picture of some roses last time.

I saw this tightly packed group of lily buds in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney a few years ago. There’s plenty of potential growth here and perhaps the tight crop lifts the shot a little out of the ordinary.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

Macro is a good way to discover texture. This is the┬ástamen of a lily. Try not to get the pollen on your clothes: it’ll never come off.
