Green Thumb Sunday 08/26/07 #1

This week I can name the flower, but I took all the photos in a more abstract way. I love the size of this Mexican Giant Sunflower and got in very tight to get some detail. I also sprayed it down with some water because I just love water drops on flowers. Thanks so much for dropping by this Sunday. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

I recently won a GizFolio from FuelMyBlog and the other day I picked 16 of my favorite photos for the freelance portfolio. I’d love to hear what you think of the ones I chose.

  1. Wonderful photos. I agree that water drops add a lot to flower photos. I love to see this type of work. Wish I could get some good macro shots myself.

  2. I love the abstract photography as well as loving sunflowers. Your photography makes me look at things differently when I have my camera out and about. Thanks.

  3. Sometimes I can just slap myself. When I want wet flowers, I wait for rain????

    These are gorgeous. I love the really really close up shots. The double spirals in the flower are great and clear. Some days I want to print out shots like this and have my class trace the spirals. It’s great and fun and piques interest, but it ain’t in the curriculum.

  4. Hey there Spanish Joe, Nice to see a face with all these comments that you have been leaving. Glad you liked how the photos came out.

  5. Aiyana,
    The biggest secret tot he macro is the tripod. It is the single best way I have been able to get these shots. Before the tripod my shots were no where quite as sharp and clean. Glad you liked them.

  6. Thanks Sara,
    I found that the more I looked at photos I liked from other photographers I tried to incorporate their style, I’m a big fan of Thomas Hawk’s stuff and he shoots amazing macro.

  7. hi chigiy,
    It is funny to hear that someone has macro envy, I want to be able to get in even tighter. I’ll be visiting your blog, can’t wait to see the sunflower.

  8. Thanks Mark, I’m really happy that you like it, your photos have been some of my favorites and I’m grateful for the feedback that you give each week.

  9. Curriculum, I bet you can work it in in a creative way that incorporates part of the curriculum learning too. Glad you liked the photos.

  10. AVCr8tuer, Why thank you very much. I’m not quite sure they are magazine worthy but then again I am my own toughest critic.

  11. thanks meditation, I have appreciated all of your comments, they have all been very nice, welcome to commenting on The BenSpark, come back anytime.

  12. taylorblue,
    Well if you do make sure you search amazon through my site (since I was the inspiration) 🙂 just kidding, a little. Glad my photos were inspiring. Thanks for the great comment and stopping by The BenSpark.

  13. Thanks very much Shazad, that was quite the compliment. All photos were definitely from my camera. I only wish I could do 3d like that.

  14. 30 comments Drew?!?! You are getting so famous! You should pull a “Pop Candy” and get some of this discussion going at the Benspark Forum!!

    Great series of photos…I’m increasingly proud of you!!

  15. many of them are me responding to people who have commented. But I am getting some nice feedback from many nice people. Glad you are enjoying the images,
