This was a flower from Montana De Oro that my brother accidentally picked for me when he wasn't supposed to. We both felt bad, but it was sweet of him to think of me.
My dad took this one and I edited it. He gave the the rights to it. He told me to take credit for taking it, but I don't feel right about that :)
My dad took this photo along with some other for me while he was in Florida. He told me to do with it as I please. I used it to play around with HDR, and this is what I came up with.
