It is my favorite time of the year, the dahlias are all starting to bloom at Eisenhower Park’s Dahlia Garden. Yesterday after work I visited the garden and it was nice to see all of the dahlias starting to grow. I’m looking forward to my many countless trips there in the next few months. The theme for this week’s photo challenge is half and half and I felt that this dahlia was very fitting of the theme. When I came across this photo one day when shooting at the garden I felt that finding it was truly serendipitous because it isn’t often that you find half a flower perfectly blooming while the other half isn’t even ready yet. Ever since I captured it, the photo has remained one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken.
