Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces into their hearts. – Martin Buxbaum

One of the sections in my Nature’s Treasures gallery is a collection of florals that may not seem beautiful to someone whose taste demands fresh, showcased flowers. However, I believe every stage of plant (and human) life holds surprises waiting to be discovered and appreciated. It’s how I approach life, and it’s the driving force behind what I choose to photograph. Today’s photo of an Iceland Poppy is an example. Petals lay scattered at the base of this flower, yet I chose to focus on what remained–the heart of the flower.
One of the fascinating things about photography is how each of us develops our own approach to selecting our subjects. I’m interested in hearing how you choose a subject that’s photo-worthy, especially in re. to close-up nature photos.
