I like textures and colors. Leaves and flower pedals that have begun to wilt and shrivel display excellence in both. This large flower pedal had dropped from a bouquet I bought from the grocery store and I set it on my desk for future photo opps. Over the months, the pedal withered and its tones became more earthen and pronounced, its texture aged from velvety smooth to paper-like wrinkles. Sitting at my desk working I noticed the reflections coming off my darkened cell phone screen. I placed the aged pedal on the screen and liked what I saw. I snapped several images with my camera and macro lens.
