[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't know why I like shooting lilies so much. I guess it's their regalness. Also, there is such a variety.

This was taken at Ogden Park in Valparaiso, IN. Every year they have a new variety of annuals to behold. And if you don't feel like taking pictures, you can just wander through the various gardens. It's a very relaxing place.

All I did was auto correct and tweak the contrast.
