Well, why not casually walk into a flower shop with your camera and wait until the counter person disappears into the back room so that you can whip out your camera and snap a few pictures? There isn't anything illegal about browsing! Besides, the flower shops do such a nice job of 'staging' the flowers with lights and props that it would be a shame not to photograph them. Since the store was full of flowers I had to crop pretty tight which may be a bit annoying but I really couldn't avoid it. If I wanted to isolate this presentation I had to eliminate distraction by zooming in close. I liked the lighting. I think it adds a little drama to flowers. I hope you agree!
