Flowering Flowers

Have I told ya I be out here putting together floral arrangements? Well Have a seat, and let me put yall up on game. I can’t remember with what day or arrangement it started with. Lets just say Valentines day. I remember the roses I put together but I cant remember much else. Luckily for you, and me if I’m being honest, I took photos! Shout Out to Trader Joe’s, If you go early in the day, there’s usually a nice selection of random flowers they put together. Depending on what flowers are talking to me, I spend no more than 15$, but I don’t buy flowers every week. When my current bouquet is dead, and I mean dead dead, then I prepare to buy a new set.

I brought tulips, to celebrate the first days of Spring, but even with a delay getting them cut and into water, they last such a long time, a few weeks. And I captured them in the dying process, up until the very last day, they were such beauties. Theres just something about fresh flowers that make you a bit happier with the day.

Flower Power

In my next trick, I will be a floral photographer. I’m always super excited when the light hits a flower just right, when I have company, a bee/an insect, who is admiring the art just as I am, or just after it’s rained and the beads of water have yet to fall. San Jose doesn’t owe me a thing! Every single sidewalk, walkway and park was bursting with fresh flowers, even dying flowers but there’s beauty in death. It’s a goal/dream of mine to host a gallery of my photos. I’d like to believe I can do wonders, and what better way to show them off then putting them ALL on display. I can’t wait until I return to San Jose, California. There’s still so much for me to capture. Tristan Jonez
