Some of my friends encouraged me to share my favorite photographs of flowers on a separate blog or on Flickr. My programmers and I looked into these options.
But the cost of additional bandwidth for a blog of photographs would be too much for me. And the idea of using Flickr, where my photographs could get lost in the millions of other photographs there, didn’t appeal to me.
So I decided to pick out a few of the flower pictures that I like the most for this photo essay. This time my emphasis is much more on the photos than the essay. While I caption these photos with their location, I usually don’t include the names of the flowers.
That’s just because I don’t know them and am too lazy to look them up, because I really don’t think that names are all that important. Nevertheless, I will be glad to accept the scientific or popular name for any of these beauties:
Now, after reviewing these all these beautiful flowers I am ready to see some 2009 offerings. Bloom!
