Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    super image, this is more like the Peony colors I have. Can’t wait for them to bloom in June

  • Yes, this IS pretty much what the camera saw. These were all part of a big peony display held every spring at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden where I have spent many quiet weekend afternoons.

    Very pretty capture Chris. Is it manipulated at all? (For the Flower Works group) Thanks – :-)

  • Well, only as far as the flower’s center came from another flower as the one in the original was no good, there are several layers used including a high contrast black and white one to bring out textures and a couple to control light and dark areas etc. Colors are also totally reworked from the way too dark original but none of this may fit your definition of “manipulated”? Thanks for the compliment however.
