All the delicate blooms on my stately magnolia tree were located on branches so high up the tree I could not view them from a level plane. They are typically rendered from a top-side vantage point, revealing the tops of the petals radiating from the flower center. I noticed their undersides were beautiful, also, like colorful petticoats supporting elegant, white gowns.
My camera zoom allowed me to get an intimate view of this magnolia's undergarments, which inspired the title, Intimate Apparel. This revealing view from underneath is a tribute to the beauty of this pristine, sensual, flower from any vantage. Strategic cropping resulted in an intriguing design. The curving, triangular, shapes of sky between the care-free, windblown, petal underskirts serve as arrows directing your eye to the center of this seductive flower.
I hope your spirits are renewed whenever you reflect upon this version of the delicate, beautiful, magnolia.
