The anemone’s gentle petals, slender stalks and wonderful stamen make it one of my favourite flowers. I shot this one at UBC Botanical Gardens (wonderful) and then had fun with different actions, filters and photos I shot of bokeh that I layered onto the original image until I achieved the effect I was striving for.
