Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone, But Not Forgotten

??????????From Santa Cruz.

Of all the photos I took in the Galápagos, this one is my favorite.  I don’t even know what kind of flower this is.  I love this photo because I was trying to emulate my grandfather’s photography.  He was a nature photographer and my family still has boxes and boxes of slides and prints of photos he took at various national parks.

I am not a very “artsy” photographer, and I don’t generally find plants as interesting as animals, but here I was trying to see the world as he would have through his lens.  My grandfather passed away several years ago, but I still remember him through his photographs, and I never fail to think of him when I look at this one.
