My name is Brad and I am a purple flower addict. I dig these funky flowers (once again, no idea what kind they are) and the rain made for nice flower photography on my walk to work this morning. So I will justify my purple flower addiction by the fact that the lighting these days has been conducive to this type of photography. Yeah, that's it.
Fun fact: This type of purple is on the red-violet side and is often called artist's purple. It is the pigment on the colour wheel between violet and magenta. In the Munsell color system this would be a chroma of 12. It is also called red-purple.
