Photographing Morning Glory Flowers

I have a special place for morning morning glories in my heart.  I created a painting back in October of 2010 of a little gray cat sitting next to a morning glory flower, which is based on a photograph I took of morning glories planted in my mom’s garden up in the San Bernardino Mountains.  Actually, I wish I had taken a picture of Buster dog standing next to the morning glories over ten years ago because this was the fondest memory that I ever had of these flowers.  Maybe someday I will also paint a picture of Buster next to a morning glory, but for the present I enjoy photographing these blooms.   Over the years I have taken many pictures of morning glories.

Many green worms have been chewing on the morning glory plant this summer, so I am glad the flowers were able to bloom.

Rose Photography

The other day I took  a photograph of roses in the late afternoon.

Here is another photograph that I took, which features two roses

 

In this photograph I was looking down on some lovely pink roses.

The roses are in various phases of the blooming cycle.

This rosebud is a crown glory, and makes us ordinary floral lovers feel like royalty just by gazing at it.

This pink beauty is a rose worth waiting for.
