The Purple Rose of Spring

In honor of the winter-like weather the Californians seem to think we are having here in Newport Beach, I’m putting up a powerful image of spring.  Seriously, I saw a guy yesterday wearing a stocking cap and scarf in 70 degree weather.  It’s a simple image made from our Easter bouquet shot with very low depth of field (that’s the blurry background) focusing on the center of the flower.  I also made a point of not centering the flower that is in focus – I put it on one of the 1/3 lines on the side of the image.   On top of all of that technical mumbo-jumbo, I just think it’s a really pretty, peaceful image.

It’s also a sneak preview of one of the images to be shown at my gallery opening on November 6th at the Mill District Art Gallery in Minneapolis!
