There aren't any azalea's in bloom right now so how in the world could I have been sooooo darn lucky to get a cool abstract azalea picture for my 365 Project photo of today? Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater. :)
Yep. I pulled this one out of my archives. I was actually just going through last years pictures around this time of the year as I looked for something to enter into a photo contest that I'm hoping to participate in and I forgot I had taken this one. I really like it so I wanted to post it. Yes Vic, it appears I am making up my rules as I go. ;-) This picture was taken last spring in April in downtown Swansboro in front of one of the older homes that had a huge row of bountiful Azalea bushes lining the retaining wall in front of their house. I'm not a huge azalea fan but since I had my Lensbaby 2.0 on with the Star filter from my Creative Aperture Kit on it, I experimented around with the pretty in pink flowers. I really like the abstract of this shot and if you look closely, you'll see the faint stars in the photograph from the star aperture.
