A single specific bud on this large rhododendron bush was selected as the “subject” of this series on April 24th, 2010. The intention was to graphically show exactly how an azalea grows, from a spring bud, to a mature sprig of beautiful azalea flowers. This particular portion of the plant was chosen because the tripod & camera would be placed in an accessible and repeatable location for every photo. This camera position also allowed the bright red General John Burrows Covered Bridge to be a constant backdrop for the entire set of photos. The first image was captured in late April. Eight return trips were made to this precise spot, a couple times each week, to record the ever evolving growth progress. Here is the life cycle of one single azalea blossom.
