Exuberant Nature

"Search", photo by Bethania Lima, 2013.

Happy New Year.
This month I have a simple blog  project. I will be posting some photos of my surroundings, emphasizing the exuberant flora that abounds here, although I live in a very urban environment. "Exuberant Nature" is the title of this series of photos. It will be similar to "Pacific Colours", a simple series of photos exhibited during December/12 (details here). All those photographs are very inspirational to my work as a surface pattern designer. Hope you like them.
On January the 20th this blog will be celebrating its first year. I will make a giveaway to celebrate it. Stay tuned.
Thank you for stopping by.

PS: I didn't know the name of the plant shown above. I had seen it somewhere, didn't know where. It's amazing how many things we can learn once the knowledge search begins. But we have to acknowledge that we don't know in order to put ourselves on the search track. It's an easy pattern, but not a simple one. See more here: Thistle or Cardo.
