90/365: Texas thistle III

Here's the third and final Texas thistle shot from this project. I hadn't realized it until after the fact, but these give me a pretty nice tryptych. That's a fancy fine art word for three images that go together in an aesthetically pleasing and intentional way. And if I may be allowed to engage a bit of bragging, my prof commented during the final critique that he'd had many students influenced by Blossfeldt over the years, but none of those previous projects were on the same level as mine. Now, I'm not discounting the possibility he was engaging in a bit of hyperbole to give us students encouragement and inspiration as the class wrapped up for the semester, but even so, it's nice ego-boo.
