LES BELLES BLANCHES... Alstroemeria

#abfav_white Most of you know by now how I love 'playing' with light, a never ending beautiful challenge, food for my creative soul, which I so desperately need at the moment... I love my job, but contrary to what most 'enthusiasts' think, and wish it was their 'job', pro photographic work is often boring, the clients tell you what they want, if they know what they want, which is not always the case, that, or they DO know and just can't bring it across, there's not much space for personal input (not by lack of trying!!!). This here is my FREEDOM! Each flower seems to have a different 'personality' which I'm trying to capture. PLEASE: View On Black Alstroemeria, the genus named after the Swedish baron Alströmer who brought them back from a trip to South America in 1753. Also called the Peruvian Lily or Inca Lily, is a South American genus of about 50 species of flowering plants. Almost all of the species are restricted to one of two distinct centers of diversity, one in central Chile, the other in eastern Brazil. Species of Alstroemeria from the Atacama Desert of Chile are winter-growing plants while those of Brazil are summer-growing. The flower, which resembles a miniature lily, is very popular for bouquets and flower arrangements in the commercial cut flower trade. They have a vase life of about two weeks. And don't forget; lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

THE SYMBOLISM OF ALSTROEMERIA...

Resembling a miniature lily, alstroemeria, often called the Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas, was named after its discoverer, Baron Claus von Alstromer, a Swedish baron who collected the seeds on a trip to Spain in 1753. Today, this popular flower can be found in a range of colors – from white to golden yellow, orange to apricot, pink to red, lavender and purple. View On proper Black Symbolizing friendship and devotion, the alstroemeria’s leaves grow upside down, with the leaf twisting as it grows out from the stem, so that the bottom is facing upwards – much like the twists, turns and growth of our friendships? "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." quote by Marcel Proust. Giving my flowers SOUL?

FACETS of ALSTROEMERIA

Most of you know by now how I love 'playing' with light, a never ending beautiful challenge, food for my creative soul, which I so desperately need at the moment... I love my job, but contrary to what most 'enthusiasts' think, and wish it was their 'job', pro photographic work is often boring, the clients tell you what they want, if they know what they want, which is not always the case, that, or they DO know and just can't bring it across, there's not much space for personal input (not by lack of trying!!!). This here is my FREEDOM! Each flower or object, most definitely people, seem to have a different 'personality' which I'm trying to capture. Alstroemeria, the genus named after the Swedish baron Alströmer who brought them back from a trip to South America in 1753. Also called the Peruvian Lily or Inca Lily, is a South American genus of about 50 species of flowering plants. The flower, which resembles a miniature lily, is very popular for bouquets and flower arrangements in the commercial cut flower trade. They have a vase life of about two weeks.

CREATE YOUR DREAMS, Alstroemeria

"We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams." That is the 'original' quote, that goes for the flowers I photographed here, Alstroemeria... sadly, it did not mention who's words they were. It reminds me of ZORBA, By Nikos Kazantzakis, one of my favourite literary works, talk about overlapping expression!!! Because it was so fitting to my own emotions, I made it into this now: "I photograph for laughter, I photograph for tears, I photograph for madness, I photograph for fears, I photograph for hopes, I photograph for screams, I am the photographer, I create the dreams..."
