I don't know what kind of flowers these are. The town has them planted at Paper Goods Pond. I took the photo with the Lensbaby Muse using the single glass optic. This has a general softening effect on the photo. I haven't decided if I like it or not for flowers (or "smellies," as some would have it!) One the one hand, I do like the way the diffusion makes the color dominant over detail. On the other, detail is part of what makes a flower exquisite. But, to me, the important thing is playing (or experimenting, if one wanted to be all formal about it.)

...is to fill 52 themes, one a week for the year. Some weeks, maybe I'll try to find several photos to fit the themes. Others, I may spend more time trying to perfect one that seems best to represent the theme. Three years of a photo-a-day opened my eyes, now I want to hone my skills.
