Weekly photo challenge: Distorted

My photo’s this week are inspired by the Philadelphia International Flower, which just opened its doors yesterday, on March 4. This year’s theme is Hawai’i: Islands of Aloha (feel free to browse my site for more info and photos) and the exhibits I have seen so far are absolutely amazing.

The two photos here are a part of one of the exhibits and I find it interesting how the distortion of flowers and other objects from their “natural” states had resulted in the creation of something new.

These were taken as I flew from Philly to Detroit.
