LULA'S PETALS
Natural flowers under spectral light

        Certain plans come to fruition only when there's no alternative. The concept that would later become "Lula's Petals" was on my mind since 2019 yet I found myself too entertained by walks at the botanical garden to just stay home and figure out the more technical aspects of photographing flowers under spectral light. I was on the cusp of Spring looking for the first bud of 2020 when the botanical garden closed (you already know the reason). I was left out of Spring and flowers were to bloom without me as a witness. 

        After weeks of stubborn sulking, I had another try at figuring out the lighting issue that made me quit the first time. Once I had it all figured out, I indulged in being alive, I reveled in ideas, listened to books and chased sunbeams through every window of the house in order to take pictures of "rainbow flowers".

       Given no alternative, I was happy. Since this project is the result of happy days in trying times, I hope you get as much happiness looking at them as I did creating them.
