Self-Portrait 7/52_Light Leaks

These were done in 30 minutes, right after a two hour nap with nothing but my camera, tripod, and my Valentine flowers. They were dying already so I had to use them somehow. 
My first plan was to incorporate them into the picture, maybe on my hair...but nothing looked right. Then i decided to use it, like i would use it if i were only behind the camera...which was to attach a couple of petals to the lens using my hair tie,  so that it would create some kind of lens flare but with color. This is how it turned out. pretty cool. My original plan was to fake the light leaks on photoshop, but thanks to the sun & some rose petals, I was able to achieve it on my own.
Awesome.
