A photo of a fall flower taken 2 days before Thanksgiving 2012, with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro at St. Lukes Garden on Hudson Street, New York City
This photo was taken in the garden of St. Luke's Church on Hudson Street, New York City. I used a Canon 5D mark II with a Canon 100mm 2.8L Macro IS USM lens with natural light.
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.
