On my long walk to the Avalon Casino (Santa Catalina Island, California), I found many African daisies. As it was late afternoon, these blooms were thinking of going to sleep and were starting to close up. They were at a distance, making my long zoom lens the logical choice. I added textures in post-processing to give more of an “off to dreamland” feeling. Not cropped, composed in camera. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 149mm, f/4.5, 1/320 sec., ISO 200, open shade, handheld) Textures courtesy of Shadowhouse Creations (You’d be surprised) and Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures (Dove Wings).
