Lily Bouquet, Thursday, July 23, 2009
EDITOR'S PICK, betterphoto.com, July 2009

I took this shot this past Sunday and decided to use it as a daily today. I was on a roll on Sunday, I think. Took a lot of photos, lot of variety in subject. These are some of the lilies I grow in my front yard. I love daylilies even more for their metaphor - hardy and strong under almost any circumstances, yet wildly gorgeous and exotic. They are no shrinking violets or hothouse flowers! These particular ones were in a vase on my kitchen table. I decided to take them into my bathroom with amazing natural light - and one purple wall - to shoot them.

I had it in my head that the shots I took that showed the vase would be better, but as they turned out, I liked this one better.
