Taking on a subject we see every day but never seem to notice, this flowers photo series shows the audience a unique take on nature's prettiest accessory.

The bright and vibrantly colored flowers photo series takes on wild anthropomorphic shapes that seem so much more regal than they do in real life. With only the sky as a backdrop, the flowers come to life as they would in spring, bringing with them a dizzying array of hues. Captured by 72-year-old photographer Tony Mendoza -- who is a retired professor of photography at The Ohio State University, former architect, published novelist and Guggenheim fellow -- the blatantly obvious and direct subject matter of flowers is poignantly fascinating.

Using a wide-angle lens, novel camera angles and flash to make sure this over-done subject goes from ordinary to unique, Mendoza does a stunning job capture the simplest of subjects.
