This Photo of the Week, titled “Fresh Cut Calla Lilies,” stars a beautiful bunch of, well, fresh cut calla lilies. I captured this image while strolling through the Santa Monica Farmers Market last Saturday with my guy. I love the juxtaposition of these pure, white, delicate blooms in the foreground against the harsh, cracked, grey concrete in the background. These flowers have always spoken to me. In my dad’s house growing up, there was a print of a Diego Rivera painting, “The Flower Vendor (Girl With Lilies),” that featured the slender, stately, curved flowers. When I see them, they remind me of home.
