This batch was spotted in the Laurentians, north of Montreal. Doesn't that old fashioned fire-hydrant make a colourful sculpture in this wildflower garden?
This one is doing her best to imitate the fire hydrant.
The hot pink and lime green make a bold fashion statement.
You may have noticed that I like colour. I like my photos to snap, crackle and pop with high contrast and bold tones. There is a vogue that I've noticed for very pale, washed-out effects, which I do enjoy seeing in other people's photo editing, but it's just not my style.
These pictures are about the life force of the flowers;
how they leap out at passers-by and demand to be appreciated.
But even in their bold brightness,
they maintain a delicate softness.
Forgive me for waxing lyrical here.
