When taking photos of flowers, I like to find the ones that have a special bit of character. The ones that seem perfectly symmetrical, though they are beautiful in their own way, are not the ones that I find most interesting.
Where petals are missing or damaged, where form is misshapen, there is a story, a journey, a mystery. Capturing the unsolved mystery (and leaving it as so) leaves room for imagination and engagement.
I used my macro lens to shoot this daisy. The focal point helps show that the center is misshapen by way of clarity and surrounding blur. The eye moves over the center's surface and knows immediately it is not fully round. We pause at the crevice and then continue on; we experience the movement; we are engaged.
