A big surprise for me while walking through the Aloe area in Mt Cootha botanic garden was the flowers. They are big and pink, which I have never seen before. Getting closer to a Aloe plant with beautiful petal buds ready to blossom I felt like they were watching me during my photography.

Photograph Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Photographer: Diep Tran (Brisbane, Australia) Registered
Born in Viet Nam and now living in Brisbane, Australia, Diep Tran enjoys taking photos of simple things around the house, during travel and asking relatives and friends to be her models.Recently her interest has focused on the art of pure photography, the effects of light and shade and the correct time of day relevant to the shot. This has broadened her mind in the creative side of photography.
Her Buddhist upbringing taught her to appreciate the beauty and quality of life in natural and man made objects around the world. After travelling to a few countries and observing different climates, seasons and ways of living, her outlook on photo has improved and her presentations hopefully show that aspect in her work.
