I love Dahlia, their flowers and the smell of their foliage. I only have one variety, a “spider” dahlia, in my garden, but it is so lovely that I fall in love with it each year, and of course I take lots of photos.
However, I also like to edit my photos a little bit, and one of my favourite edits is simply to invert the photo, and guess what? My dahlia looks totally awesome inverted, like some tentacled maw about to swallow you up. What do you think?
I inverted this photo because I loved the patterns of the algae in the creek, but it was all brown – now it is lovely blue and much more lively. I still love the waving algae, and the reflected branches, and the sense of flow that it has.
It also feels like this past week, just a blur of movement and it was gone.
