Poring Over the Picture
I know it’s not very manly, but I have to tell you: I have a thing for flowers. I’m not much into growing them or having them around the house—I prefer to photograph them. With so many varieties and ways of lighting and photographing them, they are always presenting me with new challenges. I spotted this flower in a small garden outside my hotel room in Ollantaytambo, Peru. It had rained the night before, and I loved the small water droplets on the petals and the contrast of the flower against the darker green plant in the background.
