FROM A SEED...A WORLD OF BOTANICALS
Both through world travel and exploring the neighborhoods we live in, we come across the vast variety of botanicals both indigenous to local areas and, with controlled climates, those native to far away places. We gain an appreciation for the variety of life that starts with a seed, whether it be the spectacular greenery of a forest or jungle, the exciting beauty of flowers bursting with color, wonderful edibles like bright red tomatoes and pink blushed peaches or the textures and layers of botanicals in a black and white print.
With autumn approaching in the northern hemisphere and spring in the southern, capture your unique view of favorite flowers, trees, variegated leaf patterns, vines, fruit etc. in gardens, at the beach, on your window sill, in a snow covered park, or in the rain forest.
As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.
