I found this flower while looking for more shots near the water. This was taken at Kenilworth Gardens; the petals will soon fall of the flower and all that will be left will be a weird looking circular thing like those below the blossom. I think I will use one of them in my book but am torn which one. I like the delicate colors of the petals contrasted with the blues and greens but also like the phantom like feeling of the flower in B&W. The cropping is a little different but other than that, these two shots are the same.
