Dynamic Botanical Photographs

Now being exhibited at the
San Francisco Botanical Garden's Library are brilliant photographic images of plants and flowers bursting with color, texture and geometry. The title of the show, by photographer Julie Jaycox, "Nature's Geometry: Surprises of Botanical Design," perfectly describes these beautiful and detailed images and the symmetry they present.

Many of the pieces are composed of two pictures to show the similarity and differences between the plants and the elements that make them unique. Julie's images showcase the beauty, elegance and often unseen details of plants that surround us daily, as many of these photographs were taken while she walked through parks and found the plants in different stages of growth and flowering.

"Nature's Geometry: Surprises of Botanical Design" will be on display at the Helen Crocker Russell Library of Horticulture in the San Francisco Botanical Garden until December 30, 2010 and are a must see for any botanical or photograph enthusiast.
