Nobi, this is really beautiful! I notice there's no mention of its being a lovely origami work...Did you use blue silk fabric? Is this artwork origami or something different? Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS (very, very belatedly) on your photo of it making finalist!! #466944

Nobu Nagase April 07, 2004

Mary, thank you so much for finding this image and for your kind words.

It does seem like an artificial flower but this is a real morning glory, captured early morning before it fully opened, using Canon G3 with its closeup lens on a tripod. #468412
