A Photographer’s Passion for Flowers


Gundy Schloen is passionate about photography.

So: add her passion for photography to her passion for flowers and what do you get?

Beautiful photos of flowers, of course.

Over the years, Gundy has taken thousands of photos of flowers.

Flowers in her own garden and flowers wherever she goes.

Like the Oshawa Peony Festival a few weeks ago. (Oshawa is a city east of Toronto.)

So I asked her if I could feature just a few of the photographs she took there.

But choosing just a few was very difficult. I really liked this one, above.

Then again, I liked this photo below and the one below that.

Gee whiz – I liked a lot of them.

Well done, Gundy and thanks for allowing me to feature “a few” of your stunning photos.
