A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms. Beautiful shot by 📷: @lydia_purdy. This young photographer has the added gift of being able to not just look for an opportunity for a perfect shot, but to see the people in it and the story it might tell. We’ll look for more great images in the future as she develops her craft. Here’s your feature, Miss Lydia!👍🏻 (at Baldwin Farms)
