Into the heart

Now, Hennie Schaper gets creative in the floral department.

Into the heart

Yes, I know. Flower macro. Been there, done that. It’s not like… well, maybe it is a little like… A flower macros shot that actually stands out, that adds something more to the pot than just prettiness of form, is rarer than one might imagine, given the obscene number of such shots taken. This one takes a different view of things floral.

The tight crop is the key to this image’s success, removing the “distraction” of the outer petal shape. We go beyond the floral, into an alien world of distorted space and organic patterns: a descent into some unknown, from which some unknowable life form emerges. There is a sense of direction, as we are sucked into this funnel, and the sinuous creatures come to meet us. We are lost going over that edge.

And, of course, those details of life are placed where they should be, nicely about the golden ratio intersection within this passage between worlds.

Yes, floral macros could indeed become addictive.
