This view was after sister sprayed the flower with some water, to create the effect. She thought it would look really pretty.
The view of the inside- you can see that the "stamen" of the flower has been cut. When you have lilies, as soon as they bloom, and the stamen is present, you're supposed to cut that off, it keeps them bloomed longer. We have no idea why, its just what we were told to do. These lilies were for sister's birthday a week and a half ago. The pictures were taken last week. They're just dying now. They live MUCH longer with that cut.
another view of the flower.
Here is one view that sister manipulated slightly. We changed the lighting to let you see the flower differently.
Here is another view in sepia. No matter how many different ways you photograph the lily- it still remains beautiful. :)
I hope you enjoyed my view of the lily. :)
