Cosmic expansion. by Camiloo Cosmic expansion. by Camiloo
Botanical big bangs!
My first macro flower shoot :D
Titled inspired by the book "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson.
Paid about 1 U.S. dollar for the whole bouquet.
It' really fresh,because the place was a mountain retreat.
There are a lot of wild flowers there.
I brought the glitter with me.While packing at home before we went,I came across a small packet of universe-themed glitter sequins and thought "What's the harm?it only takes up a small space in the bag."
I didn't use anything to stick the things on the flower's center (what is it called?).
I think it's because the morning that I took this picture on was quite foggy,so the humidity on the flower acted as an adhesive.
:D
This was done on the same holiday that I did this picture:


Thank you for viewing!

It's just so cool how the blackness of the center of the flower brings out the bright colors of the little... star-moon-thingies. Then the glowing of the yellow flower petals brings out even more of the colors and it just looks so pretty that way!!!:heart: :heart: :heart:

Thank you!And yes,in the mind we can.
But of course we couldn't affect the real cosmic expansion (post-big bang expansion effect) at all.
