Flowers (Part 1) - Pleasanton, CA

Spring is here, and flowers are blooming, earlier in California compared to the rest of the US due to the higher temperatures this year. I went shooting photos of flowers around Pleasanton, CA on my walks. Here are the photos I've taken on these walks. These photos are shot during March. The flower photos will be split into a total of 3 parts.

Message From the Photographer: Hi guys, I have some bad news. My Nexus 5's radio just broke. As you know I am quite the computer geek too, and I gave it my all trying to fix the device (resetting things to make sure it isn't a software glitch). Anyways, I have failed, and more than likely the physical cellphone radio broke (so it won't connect to my carrier at all). My phone is very important in my photography. I do sometimes use the camera on the phone for some of my photos, use it to navigate to my photo shoot destination, and many times I will need to tether my DSLR to my phone for certain types of photos. I am not asking for donations, but I am asking for some help to build up some funding on a new smartphone. I'm a poor college student. It might seem like I have all the money in the world, but most of my photography equipment is from my parents. I would really like to be able to replace this phone with my own money.
