I like the challenge of taking, or not taking a good photo. Capturing what I see and having it turn out to share with others. To enjoy looking at or painting, making into a card, etc. Art comes in all forms and is either liked or not liked by the viewer. I find beauty in all that is around me but many see with a blind eye. Sad. I love the waxiness of this flower, the thickness and yet the transparency as you can see the stalk of another behind the petal. The pale, pale green lines in the petals, and the shades of white that almost have a pink tinge here and there.
