I like this high key version of calla lily-as-abstract. This is the most enigmatic of the series to me. If it were not posted in this thread, I probably would not venture a guess as to what it is. It retains its beauty based on its grace, not on its detail.

And back to detail, but from an artistic perspective rather than a naturalist's. Georgia O'Keeffe-ish?

Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

These both remind me of a dancer, especially the second. So delicate, so graceful! S-

From yesterday. Not to much longer and my Calla Lily Season here on the Olympic Peninsula will be over. Maybe I should buy some fake ones, but then that might turn into Fake News. ;-)

Nice, more abstract versions. The first one looks like wings to me.
