‎"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul." ~John Muir
This is the foundation and goal of all of my photography. My objective is not to take us deeper into reality, or to plumb the depths of our humanity. Other photographers do that far better than I ever could. My desire is to bring some beauty into people's lives. That, in part, is why I find flowers to be so compelling.

My mind is torn today Jack, is the beauty in the colour or in the exquisite detail?
The picture seems to have two harmonious halves with different personalities.

Florence from Paris, France

Oh. I'm faced with a big dilemma. Is this one better than yesterday or vice versa ? ;-)
One difference maybe, this is one is probably more... sensual in a sense.

@Florence: as you know, sometimes the choice is clear; at other times, it is not. figuring out why we feel the way we do is the toughy
