Stopping to take photos of the flowers

The Record photographers have a knack for focusing in on their subjects and bringing out the detail. They do it with plants, clouds, animals and people. Often giving them much more impact than when viewed normally. Their work inspires me to view things differently, particularly small things that I may not have looked at closely before such as these flowers that were in bloom while I was walking my dog through the neighborhood. So as I walked, I took out my phone and snapped a few photos along the way.


These by far, were the most striking.


But from a distance, although pretty, they do not carry the same impact.

A mixture of purple and white flowers side by side.

Notice the details visible in a close view.


Flowers seen while walking through a Stockton neighborhood. This photo, as with all the others, is taken from the sidewalk.

And a close-up of these colorful ones.
