I came across some silver vase bromeliads in bloom in an outdoor area at the Aquarium of the Pacific and stopped to capture the beautiful pink and blue inflorescence. I tried the shot at various apertures and liked the wide-open one best for the contrast between the spiky bits and dreamy softness. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/2.0, 1/250 sec., ISO 200, open shade, handheld) Textures (Serendipity, Liberte and Gelato) are from the Tableaux collection at Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.
