Well, what can I say about this photo apart from that I found these wonderful photos of lotus flowers by Huimin here and wanted to try something along the same lines for myself....unfortunately I don't have a lens that will do close-up photos so a vase of mixed flowers is the best you're going to get.
I can't explain why I find Huimin's mono-toned lotus flower photos so delightful but they are bewitching.....like a glimpse of secret beauty shining through the darkness.
When eventually I manage to find a way of focusing closer with my camera you might see some more close-up flower shots....Spring is only just around the corner after all :-)
