"Open and Shut"
There are so many interpretations of this photograph, it was tough to title it. The one that I wanted to relay is 'risk and reward'. We often have to open ourselves up to exposure, in order to reap the benefits (ie: the sun, etc). If we stay closed-up, we'll not be able to shine to the world.

I composed this as the last beam of sunlight fell across the petals. Did I mention I was eaten alive by mosquitos?
Hope you enjoy.
