Blooming Friday – Photogenic

This week’s theme for Blooming Friday over at Roses and Stuff is Photogenic.

What makes a plant photogenic? Is it because it is exotic and unusual?  For me the Lotus lily I saw at Giardini La Mortella was incredibly photogenic.  I couldn’t stop taking photographs of it.

I don’t think it does have to be an exotic plant.  I think that a common and everyday plant such as the Aquilegia above can be just as photogenic.  I suppose it all depends on the photographers eye and them being drawn to the plant in the first place.

    Lovely flower and photos. I’ve not yet thought of spring; our flowers lie in wait under approx 9 feet/3.3 meters of snow in places. Makes your Aquilegia even more appealing!

    Both are lovely. I think the photographer has a lot to do with it, too!
