We Review: SunFlowers

SunFlowers by The Game Atelier is an arcade-style game for the PS Vita that features a sun…and flowers. Hence the name of the game. I took it for a drive to see if I could shed some light on whether I have a green thumb…or a deadly one.

The Life of Flowers

Vladimir Vorobyov created a mesmerizing time-lapse video of a myriad of flowering plants as they begin to bloom. It’s an explosion of colour timed to a very enthusiastic composition, Happy-go-lucky, by Patrick Hawes. It’s sure to put a smile on your face. It did mine, but maybe I’m easily amused. Check out The Life of Flowers below.

Dew Drops on Dandelions

It’s not quite rain drops on roses but UK-based photographer Sharon Johnstone shows that macro photography is one of her favourite things.

Johnstone directs her lens at the tiny dew drops that have formed on dandelions and produces some stunning photos in the process. Have a look at them after the jump.


Pretty Paint Explosions by Nick Knight

If there is anything we have learned from the likes of Nuit Blanche, Alexandre Farto, and Alan Sailer, it is that explosions can looks very beautiful. Fashion photographer Nick Knight hammers the point home in a series of photos that he took in 2005. What look like colourful abstract flowers are in fact paint explosions.

Have a look at Knight’s small set of pretty paint explosions after the jump.

Beautiful Exploded Flowers

In his latest series of photographs, Singaporean artist Fong Qi Wei disassembles different flowers and lays them bare on a canvas. By doing this, Wei shows not only the individual floral components but also natural symmetry of flowers.

Have a look at some of the roses, lilies, dahlias, and hydrangeas from his Exploded Flowers series after the jump.

Macro Flowers: Up Close & Beautiful

Some years back, we visited a lovely lady in Hermanus. She had the most wonderful garden and early one morning I got up to take some photos of the flora. I took a macro shot of some dew-covered daisies that I am to this day especially proud of – click here to see it. It’s not a professional-looking photo but I like it and entered it in a competition under the DOF category. Surprisingly I won.

Anyways enough of the preamble. I just stumbled across 15-year-old Polish photographer, Magda K. Her macro shots of flowers have such a beautiful, serene look about them. When I grow older, I want to be like her – a better photographer, not a Polish girl, because that wouldn’t make much sense. See some of Magda’s wonderful photos after the jump.

Inorganic Flora By Macoto Murayama

Digital artist Macoto Murayama makes the most detailed computer-generated illustrations of flowers. Murayama dissects real plants and observes them under a magnifying glass before rendering the geometric structures on his computer.

Murayama takes anywhere from three days to a month to create each piece. The results are truly incredible, showing the beauty and complexity of flowers. Take a look at some of them below.
