In this case, I was so focused on the anemone flower that I literally didn't see the buds. They ruined what I was trying to accomplish.
Sometimes, though, the details inadvertently add to the composition. Maybe the more artistic types who read this blog can explain how, but in this case, the bud adds so much to the picture. It's just perfect. I love it.
I tried shooting this container from so many angles, but just couldn't find one that completely kept out the railing (the black line along the side).
I love the rosy color my blue hydrangeas become in the fall.
