beauty, like a painting

This truly looks like a painting to me...These are some of the flowers from that beautiful arrangement that I treated myself to, almost two weeks ago now....And below, a few more.

I feel they speak for themselves....At least they speak for themselves to me, without words.... Flowers that are going through their life cycle are utterly fascinating to me....especially after they have been cut and arranged and sit in your home bringing such joy....As they begin to change, in some ways they become more beautiful, to me.... I just love seeing those wavy lines there in the middle...you can really see how designers get their ideas from nature and the ways that nature has of creating beauty....

There are a lot more....but I will leave you with just this last one, for now....I feel like I have been painting with the camera with these particular pictures....Enjoy, Enjoy......





More To Come.....

Good Monday Morning Lady !

Exquisite 'paintings' with your camera ! You truly have a gift at capturing the beauty of those flowers. Wow.

You ought to sell your work -- or maybe you already do.
These would make an awesome series of prints/placemats/coasters, you name it, depending on how you priced them...
Luscious...
It's not the first time you have captured nature so magnificently --

Beautiful and very much like a painting, the feeling of an O'Keeffe painting

That top photo sure does look like a painting.
I've never heard of "painting with a camera" before, but after this post, it makes perfect sense to me.

You are right Naomi - that first photo really does look like a painting from the 18th century. It truly does. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Wow! Just beautiful, Naomi! Amazing photos!

Dear Naomi, I have nominated you for a Thinking Bloggers Award! Take a look on my current post to know the rules. Cheers! Many hugs!

Sure dear Naomi, I truly understand
that you don't choose any people for this honor. And thank you so much for said that I would be one of those 5, too. Many hugs my dear friend!

Those flowers and photos are lovely.

Yeah, in the summer... I like to go out into my garden and paint / sketch the blooming flowers. It relaxes me.

So so like art! How can anyone not be inspired by such beauty? I just love the last photo.

They certaintly do look like a painting. But you captured them as a true artist! They're utterly gorgeous. Those would make incredible framed photographs.

Love these colors... not exactly yellow and not apricot but something in between... help me here... what fruit is this color and in between a lemon and an apricot. Gorgeous!

PS: I gave a hug to Nick for you. Let us know how Sweetie is doing.

They are beautiful, Naomi. There's a lot of enjoyment to be had from doing still lifes with a camera. I know you're an experienced artist with paints, so photography is a nice extension of that painting ability of yours. I did one photo last Fall that had a similar affect on me. I wish I could do it more often.

Painting with light again Naomi....? [grin].

Reminds me of spring as we finally have got it in Norway this year too:-)

Naomi, I don't know about Tai Chi helping after you get shingles. The research was done with people who did tai chi before getting shingles - not afterward. I'll bet it might help him anyway; tai chi is so calming and serene. Tell him to try it. It may take months, but every little bit helps, you know?

You are a painter indeed with that camera Naomi. It just seems very natural to you....it is hard to explain. But all your photos are just like an extension of yourself. Very real, very enduring, not overdone or calculated...does that make any sense at all?

I am saying you're a natural talent basically! Very pretty colors too!

Your camera really does paint beautiful blossoms, but the artist in you paints pictures of your own beauty.

Hello, Michele sent me.

I always like visiting your site because you seem to capture some really amazing pictures - especially closeups of flowers.

How did I miss this post?

I love the faded shades of these cabbagey roses, Naomi. Must get your florist's name/address/phone.
