I chose this photo because of the intriguing buds that serve as an armor to the beautiful blossom. I also love the darker buds because of the dappled light coming from the holes in the leaf above them. It adds the kind of interest I look for in a subject. I wouldn't think twice about doing this cropped rendition. It stirs up my creative juices so much, I might just have to paint it. Now, what can I put with it, that is the question to ponder for a while longer.
