February — Something Red

IMG_3099

One place that is serene and beautiful for a stroll is Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota.  The bountiful variety of flowers and plants make it a photographer’s paradise.  On a recent visit, I only had my iPhone 11 Pro Max to capture some of its beauty.  But next visit … I’m taking the big camera along!  By the way, if you are wondering what is that eyeball doing in that flower, it is part of Selby’s current exhibit of Salvador Dali’s “Gardens of the Mind” collaboration with The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg.  Selby has put together cool designs inspired by Dali’s fascination with art, math, science and nature.  Dali’s interest in “divine geometry” is based on the idea that natural forms such as the nautilus shell, daisies and beehives grow at a constant proportion without changing shape. Many of these numerical ratios are found in Dali’s works and throughout the Gardens.
