Yellow Ruffle: A Flower Close Up

petals, stamen and stigma of a varyingly yellow flower

Ruffles and Ornaments: a petal shelters the reproductive organs of a flower.

I like to think of this flower photo as a “near-abstract.” It’s mostly obvious what you’re looking at, yet somewhat unfamiliar, divorced from the easy reference image in our subconscious but not completely.

On another note, I have heard that the color yellow makes people anxious. In this case it makes me want to fiddle with contrast and saturation, so maybe it’s true.
