Welcome to Braiden Blossoms, a place of beauty and respite from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Take a moment to ponder the photographs, which include literal “blossoms” (flower photos) and figurative and metaphorical “blossoms” captured by the website’s founder and editor, Braiden Rex-Johnson.
Of note is that all of the 140+ photos on the Braiden Blossoms website were taken with Apple iPhones, beginning in 2012 with a trusty iPhone 4s, and moving on to the powerful iPhone 6 Plus from 2015 until the present time.
Most of the images have been enhanced with various apps, such as Hipstamatic or Waterlogue, and/or filters available in Apple’s Photos platform.
Photos on the Braiden Blossoms website are divided into 14 categories.
Delight in three types of Flowers–those photographed using the Hipstamatic app or “painted” using Waterlogue–or Formal Flowers, which were photographed in studio.
Travel back in time when you click on the Nostalgia button. Giggle at the Whimsical photos. Fall in Love again!
