a little bit of zen as we head into the weekend. . . i photographed this pink lotus while on a short photo walk the other day at el pedregal.
because lotus flowers bloom and thrive in the murkiest of waters, they are considered by many cultures to be a symbol of transformation, spiritual awakening, strength and beauty; the pink lotus is especially revered.
i had some fun editing this image and processed it a little differently than usual. . . i added a layer of texture to the areas around the flower, removing the texture from the flower itself which made the lotus “pop” even more and, hopefully, added to the symbolism.
enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!
