A Field Trip to the Public Gardens

Digital original
As I was photographing with students in the gardens, moving from lovely flower to lovely flower, this tortured tulip caught my eye...I wish I could have simplified the background more, but short of cutting down other flowers (a real no-no in the gardens), this was the best I could do.

Once I finished working with the red distressed flower, I couldn't stop seeing them, and made image after image of beautiful imperfection.

I think for a moment, while making this image, I could really understand why some people really enjoy photographing wild-life (though in this case it was pretty tame wild-life). There was such pleasure in making an image like this, especially of such a cute duckling.
