Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge #46 – Delicate

I don’t often do delicate, but I’m having a look to see what I can find…

First up was this image I took in the White Garden at Sissinghurst, Kent a good few years ago. The grasses appealed

….and for more delicate nature, how about the delicate colours of an orchid:

Ann Christine was talking of the delicate beginnings of plants in the Spring, but conversely, in the early part of the year, I like to have a look to see what delicate remains of petals or leaves I can find from the previous year’s growth:

Last year, I took a Still Life featuring some delicate, fluffy parts of some seed pods:

  1. Orchids work for me, Sue. They are ‘delicate’ indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Amy

    Petals or leaves from the previous year are beautifully captured. 🙂

  3. All beautiful choices sue – I love the composition of the orchids

  4. These are all perfect for the challenge, Sue. Although I like them all quite a lot, I like the one in B&W especially.


    • Sue

      Thanks, Janet – I presume you mean the decaying petals…not actually B&W, but fairly heavily desaturated for effect!

  5. They are all lovely Sue, but the orchid has my heart.

  6. All perfect, Sue! I thought you might also take some delicate decay to your posting…love it. The Hydrangea (?) is my favorite!

  7. Skeleton leaves are my favourite – so delicate and lacy.

  8. All are beautiful, Sue. But the fluffy things is my favorite. They look like paintings. It’s beautiful art..

  9. I love each one of these!

  10. I think you do delicate rather well!

  11. i like the still life photo of the seed pods. Really cool shot.

  12. These are lovely. Delicate and beautifully captured.
