I knew at some point I’ll be doing a collection post for my monthly (yes, monthly) photography blogpost. If you like,ย you canย visit or revisit all my previous entries I listed here…

STILL – Taking action shots? Here are my suggestions.
Capture the Colour – Myย response for the Capture the Colour contest.
Shot Into Smithereens – One Set of One Title, One Image post.
Weekly Photo Challenge 2013 – One submissionย image for each month in 2013.
BLAQUE – My submissions for Paula’s B&W Challenge.
The Scientist – Though underrated, it’s one of my most personal favorite posts.

Next month I’m thinking of a Zilch redo. As for this month, I was thinking my hiking images, rock formations, the ocean, birds, sea creature, any nature-related, but I decided to go with flowers. Amy of The World is a Book really was very very very pushy before that I go with the flowers. ๐Ÿ˜€ I really don’t want to go along with it, but she was adamant and very persuasive. She was using all kinds of persuasion techniques – manipulation, intimidation, threat, bullying, voodoo :D, etc. I kid, I kid. ๐Ÿ˜† Amy is one of the loveliest bloggers around. Flowers. Everyone is gung ho ๐Ÿ˜€ about it. I didn’t like to jump into the bandwagon. It’s easyย photo subject to capture. It’s liked by everybody.ย Especially now that’s spring time, everyone is antsy for it. But what can you do!? It’s hard to just ignore and avoid it. It speaks beauty, hope, romance and good feeling all around. It deserves the attention.

Flowers for everybody ๐Ÿ˜€ …

  1. About Time, Rommel! I have been waiting, waiting … for this post ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m humbled to see my blog linked to this exquisite flower post. No wonder I saw the traffic jam in my blog this morning ๐Ÿ˜€ There are so many spring flower posts out there now, but this one WoW!!! Thank YOU, Rommel!
    LuAnn is so Right!

    • Ahihihi … My posting frequency went down, down, down. Even I have to wait to compose. ๐Ÿ˜€ And so are incoming followers and visits have dwindled. It’s all alright. I love all my usual commentators. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • I’ve learned that you almost have to be on it for several hours, 7 days a week to get the traffic up. But, your followers are loyal to you, that’s so cool! ๐Ÿ™‚
        Thank you for the exquisite bloom post! Glad you did it, so I don’t have to beg, threaten… you again ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I know what you’re saying about the flowers being a “sure thing” in popularity, but not everyone can take photos of them like you do. The colors are exquisite, and you take such excellent closeups! These are really special. And I agree with you about Amy. I enjoy her blog very much!

  3. How come I missed this ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but now I found you in full bloom I’m happy ๐Ÿ™‚
    Floral grace and beauty … with some sharp photography skills Rommel .
    Love the unfurling rose … hummingbird .. and pink lily on the water .

Don't be shy to say hi.
