The gift of flowers is also a wonderful gift as a photography project. Whether from the most humble bouquet purchased at a Korean grocery shop or the elaborate creations concocted by high-end florists, the opportunity to examine and photograph flowers, one at a time, at different stages of blossom and decline, is always revelatory. The peonies that my children give me on Mother’s Day are especially poignant.
