This dahlia is fresh from a rainstorm. The background was very busy and had a lot of hot spots. No matter what angle I shot from something intruded and ruined the image. Therefore, using a friend and a sheet of mat-board covered with black velvet, held at a slight angle to the camera.

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.
