For this late summer capture, I got down really low to photograph this little patch of Dianthus flowers in a parking lot. I used my Lensbaby to render minimal depth of field for the softest effect, all in camera. This 50mm lens turns into a 100mm lens on my Olympus camera, and that helped to render a flatter perspective which made the flowers in the background seem even closer and larger than they really were.
Thanks for viewing. Hope you like it!
I really do need to get the flowers off the brain and do some real work today.....but those seed catalogs are calling me.

I love Dianthus or as my mom and I called them Sweet Williams:)
Mostly because it comes back every yr
But I usually forgot where I planted it the year before LOL
And it got too messy looking I had to dig up my new ones and replant
I love these...I always got the dark cherry red I call them and the other one:)
Love how this one stamens look like butterflys antennae
