Have a "blooming" good Friday !

It's Friday and time to link up for Photo Art and Flower Art Friday.

This week Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art)  gave us the optional prompt of,
Abstraction(s) from Nature.

I wasn't totally sure what exactly to post so hopefully this fits the theme.
I did very little editing on this piece other then cropping, slight color and sharpness corrections and the framing.

This is a rose in my mom's flower garden aptly named, "Scentimental" due to it being a very fragrant smelling rose.  I love the varigated patterns of the petals which to me appear to be very abstract.

Be sure to stop by Bonnie's blog and check out the other great entries.

FLOWER ART FRIDAY  Next up is my entry for Flower Art Friday at Photo's by LeAnne.  Enjoy!

Take care and have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Such a wonderful example of the abstract forms in nature. Beautifully composed and edited, Ida. Thank you for sharing with PAF.

  2. This is one beautiful rose. What a great name for it. I love your header too - very colorful.

  3. Underbara blommor och foto. Ha de gott.

  4. BEautimous, Ida!! I love feeling like I am falling into your rose.

    Wondrous work!!

  5. Really lovely colors, great compositions, I really like. Nice pictures.

  6. Nature has a way of making its own art. We just have to observe it. I think the rose fits the theme beautifully and your second picture;wow. Valerie

  7. Oh Ida! These are both so beautiful! I have several macro images similar to your rose's easy to get lost in those beautiful waves of color in a rose, isn't it? And your other photo is beautifully composed and edited! It's so soft and almost vintage.

  8. I love athe curve teh blue flowers makes across the last shot. Loosk great. :)

  9. These are just lovely and definately framable.

  10. The cropping is what made it abstract along with the varigated colors ... Bonnie's prompts have become very challenging since she took her break, hmmmm. But, you seem to get it. I will look forward to what you come up with for "figure" :)
