I opted to spend the first morning of 2012 at my local botanical garden, always a place that renews my spirit. The fuchsia garden is near the entrance and thus it’s one of my first stops when flowers are blooming. Fuchsia season is nearly over in Southern California, but a few remaining blossoms are still beautiful – like this delicate pair. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/3.5, 1/200 sec., ISO 200, filtered morning sun) – I used two textures from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures
