The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I asked you to use the theme of the rough with the smooth as your inspiration for this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge and I was inspired by two rather different examples of horticulture.

We were given some black lilies by our next door neighbours and I was looking forward to seeing them bloom dramatically amongst the ferns, but what we actually got was this mildly disturbing and very rough mutation…

…with buds growing out of buds, like the chest burster in Alien.

Which contrast very nicely with the smooth sleek forms of the day lilies, the star gazer lily and the perfect geometry of the dahlia which started blooming yesterday.

Now let’s see how you interpreted the prompt this week.

Come on in, the pictures are lovely!


To get involved with the challenge; check out the Cosmic Photo Prompt each Friday, then post a photo (or photos) on your blog the following Monday, with a pingback link to my Monday post.

Tag your posts with #CosPhoChal.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages, animation, gifs, or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

  1. My wife is responsible for our flowers and mainly for such photos, but she does appear only sometimes in my blog with such colorant ambitions. May be another time a suitable occasion emerges for joining again after holiday season. Nice summerdays in the time being πŸ™‚

      1. It must have been a temporary brain stall. Since writing the post I’ve had more ideas to the point of trying not to think about it now.
