Imperfection and death are part of nature’s cycle. Flowers teach us to appreciate them for the beauty they have to offer during their short life span. As they evolve from a seed to fully opening their colorful petals, they’ve been committed to growth, not perfection.
I photographed flowers because they inspire me to live in the present and notice the beauty around me. They also make me realize my own limitations and weaknesses. Life is frail. Life is imperfect. But it sure can be transformative. Like a flower, I choose growth.
