I originally wasn't going to participate in this week's 52 Photos Project. The prompt this week was "orange." Although I have many photos of orange things (I am an Oregon State fan after all!), the obvious seasonal orange thing (aka a pumpkin) I've already posted. The fall colors here haven't quite kicked into full gear, so no great foliage pics yet.
I was gonna post a self-portrait of me from last year all decked out in orange for an OSU football game (go Beavs!). But that photo isn't really artful or beautiful (and you see enough of my mug on this blog!).
Then I remembered my tiger lily images from a hike this past summer. These lovely orange blooms are my favorite wildflower. I especially liked the angle of this shot - a top view highlighting the artful curl of the petals. I hope you enjoy it too.
More cool orange photos can be found here: 52 Photos Project and also here: Orange you Glad its Friday.
