The Frying Pan's Sunflower

Deep in the bowels of a social gathering spot (and Lightship} located along the Hudson River (called The Frying Pan), I found a miniature sunflower resting inside of a watering can.  Dark and what you'd expect of the innards of a salty ship to look like, I found this wonderful touch of feminine beauty.  It stands out as lovely as the establishment's manager, Danielle.

The Frying Pan is a Lightship docked near by.  I photographed this using my friend's Canon 7D and my Canon 70-300 F4-5.6 L Series lens.

Inside A Flowers Glow

I took this photo while in Alphabet City, Manhattan, New York, inside of the Secret Garden.  There were many flowers exposing themselves in many different angles.  I was shooting with a Canon 5D mark II and my Canon FD 50mm 3.5f Macro lens.

I placed myself into the mindset of a bee.  I started to wonder what it would look like if I were not only looking into a flower, but looking into a flower from below the flower and into it's natural hanging (drooping) state.  I realized the interior of the flower still captures sunlight, although it's not facing directly into the sun.  As you can see the petals help illuminate the interior of the flower.
