'Artist is confidant of nature'

The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.
~ Auguste Rodin

Photos Soon To Be Posted

Fragrant Flower Photography, the first Web site for The Flower Photographer, has not yet started posting photos on Tumblr.

The name was the first chosen by Silicon Valley photographer Glenn Thomas Franco Simmons. When tourists and locals began calling him The Flower Photographer, he changed the name to The Flower Photographer.

However, because he still owns the domain name, Glenn has chosen to use it as a Tumblr blog where he will post photos of fragrant and other flowers.

Fragrant Flower Photography’s original photos from several years ago have been merged on one Web site under The Flower Photographer.

Because Glenn has various interests that range from vintage cars to religious art, in addition to his flower and landscape photography, he combined his multiple Web sites into one that features all of his photos.

At last count, Glenn offered more photos for free than for sale, although that may change by the time you, the reader, is reading this. Suffice it to say that Glenn happily gives away his religious art that includes Bahá’í, Bible, Buddhist and Islamic verses that are combined with his photos.

He also gives away all his aquarium, museum and vintage car photos.

All free photos are available in the largest size Glenn can post for download.
