Today I’m participating in Floral Friday Fotos. You can click on each photo for a larger view. If you enjoy my photos, I encourage you to subscribe and receive updates when I post new photos, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

Before I start with this post, I’d like to ask for your feedback to help me organize my nature photography online store. If you were to buy a photo product, would you search by product type (e.g. print, canvas, mousepad, etc), or by photo theme (e.g. animals, flowers, skies, water, etc)? Which one makes more sense to you? I’d love to hear your thoughts so please feel free to comment below this post.

Going back to our Floral Friday Fotos theme, I found the loveliest pink lotus flower at San Diego’s Balboa Park a few weeks ago. This was the first decent shot I managed to get.

After a large tourist family left that side of the pond (it’s a very popular photo souvenir spot at Balboa Park for good reasons), I managed to photograph this pink lotus flower from a better angle. By the way, it was the ONLY pink (or any color) lotus flower in bloom in the whole pond.

Eventually I managed to get even closer and snap this photo. The sun was hiding behind a few clouds at the time, so it made for a softer light and I really like the results.

Have you ever seen pink lotus flowers in real life? There are not that easy to find around here. I got lucky last summer when I captured this white lotus flower. Happy Friday!

    Very pretty flower!

    I think I’d rather search by photo theme, especially if there were a lot to choose from.

    Happy Friday!

      Lotus flowers really are special. Thanks for the feedback on how to organize my store. I think the photo themes make a lot more sense so I’ve got some work to do…
